Gratitude: the Skill of All Skills

What are three things that you are grateful for?

I remember being told ‘Don’t be ungrateful’ throughout my upbringing but I never really understood what it meant. It sounded more like a criticism than genuine advice and it probably was.

Gratitude is a concept that can be explained. When you think about all the processes that had to happen to give us rain, the inconvenience of having to carry an umbrella or getting ourselves wet diminishes. Gratitude overcomes annoyance.

The same principle can be applied to relationships, unless a relationship is toxic. In a healthy relationship, mild annoyances can be prevented by gratitude. It allows us to appreciate the other person more and to be more generous with our patience and kindness. Overall this adds up to being a better you.
