I work in fast food, everytime one of my co workers hands something to hand out I say thank you. It’s not necessary how I was brought up but I’m one I’ve molded myself into. Don’t get me wrong, my family taught me manners but I’ve still realized a lot about the importance of saying thank you.
You’re not entitled to be given things. I’ve been dating my boyfriend for 9 months yet everytime he buys me something or does something for me I say thank you. Why? Because he’s not obligated to get me food. He’s not obligated to hold the door for me. And I’m thankful for anything he does for me that I could do myself.
It’s important to say thank you so people know you’re exactly what you’re saying, thankful.
Not everyone feels this way but I write thank you cards almost everytime I’m gifted something. It’s both formal and shows that why you’re thankful has impacted you.
It’s also important to write thank you notes or say thank you to important people. When I graduated high school I took time to write thank you notes to teachers that impacted my life.
In the end, thank you shows anyone you’re thankful for what they’ve done for you. If you enjoyed this post don’t forget to check out the rest of my blog and my Instagram, @corahandley !
