3 Simple Ways to Show Someone You Care
Life is busy, and then it gets busier. Oftentimes we take the ones we love for granted when we get busy because they know we care, right? Well, when left unattended your friends and family start to feel like you don't value them...meaning, you don't care. Here are three fast, simple and cheap ways to show you really care.
1. Pay Attention
Listen to them. Look them in the eye when they speak. Ask questions. Engage in the conversation. Put down your phone!!
2. Spend time with them
Again...put your phone down and play a game of pool or cards, play volleyball, or have a dinner with them, go for coffee, see a move, or just walk the dog together on the path at the park. Whatever it is, just be a part of their lives and their memories.
3. Give them a "Just Because" Gift
The obligatory Valentines or Christmas gift has pretty much become meaningless on the expression of love scale. If you really want to show someone that you care, show them that you think about them when they are not around and that you care enough about them to pick up something they need or would like...just because. It can be small...their favorite candy bar or pretty earings or a funny sign to go on their desk. It can cost $1. Cost doesn't matter. The "I was thinking of you" part is what matters.
And if none of this sounds good. Give a smile and a hug.
