Does Saying “Thank You” Make Everything Better?

The phrase “thank you” has proven to be the all-time appreciation magic. It is often said that saying “thank you” shows appreciation to an individual for choosing to take action over being told to do same.

However, recent incidents have shown that these words are becoming a cliché. Yet we continue to question if everything appears better with these magic words.

As humans, we, sometimes, need help to help get things done and be appreciated for doing things. However, we are also sensitive and intelligent beings capable of seeing when we are being taken advantage of even while being supposedly appreciated for it.

We feel this way because some might use the opportunity to ask for help on an almost consistent basis with entitlement sentiments. Because of this, it depletes the strong effect of it and makes it look ordinary and even annoying.

Some who have gone beyond the limit can tell that they have but exploit the other person offering to help by smiling and using the magic words even though some might like to live in denial and act like they do not see the expression on the other person’s face.

Yet, “thank you” brings about a certain kind of joy that makes almost the entire human feel better about themselves. Let us help keep it that way. Thank you.
