Becoming The Change: Wanting vs. Valuing

“Anyone can want you, but the love hits different when someone actually values you.”


Wanting or valuing? One has a deeper meaning than the other. When someone wants you they are trying to fill that void or area that they as an individual may be lacking or what the organization may be lacking, that necessary quality that someone else possesses. Now when someone values you they consider you, the person, to be important or beneficial in that they have a rather high opinion of.

As today’s quote mentions both show a certain amount of love but the love actually affects you differently when you feel valued. Like I mentioned before, when we are valued it becomes more personal. You are more than just a job or someone who has the skillset to fill a void but rather it is you and what you morally stand for as a human being.

So when you take a deep look at the relationships you have with: friends, family, co-workers, etc. Do you value them like you should? Relationships and that all important area of trust is strengthened when we value others and love them for who they are as a person and not so much for what they can give you as far as the work side of things but more so the personal side of it. People want to know that they matter. That they matter to others and especially matter to you. So show them how much you value and love them so that they know from your heart to theirs what they mean to you.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your relationship skills?
