The Need for Positive Words

A friend of mine asked for feedback on others perceived them. They wanted to learn more about themselves by using others as mirrors. I applaud this. Truly meant positive words were offered by respondents. My friend asked for a more real scoop. No positive words were needed as they were digging into matters that were less positive in nature. This struck a cord in me.

Positive words can also be very true, or at least much truer, than a person's darkest self evaluations. There are some thoughts that take us down corridors that we alone walk, ones that nobody who truly cares for us would travel. It has served me well to have people think and say encouraging things. Yeah, they may seem overly positive sounding, but people who know us, even peripherally, aren't complete dummies about who we are. There are also people who are very intuitive and empathic. These people are the treasures in our lives. They give us the feedback that can save a life and/or make our life a more enjoyable. Positive words, and positive friends, are treasures to embrace.
