Why is congratulation so ubiquitous in modern life?
In the past, status differences were set in stone. But with greater equality and democracy comes a desire to spread the status around and invent new forms of status. However the more status there is in society, the more disadvantaged those without it feel. This leads to a levelling up where status is awarded as an encouragement to those receiving less recognition. Should we reward only those who have done well or also those who have not to encourage them to do better?
Reward is an incentive offered to motivate a person to do better than good. As such, it should go to the person who have done well. The best recognition for the disadvantaged is not an outright reward but to give them equal opportunities to prove their worth and mettle, a chance to be the recipient of "congratulations!".
I believe that every person has good in them. We have to be careful when offering congratulations. It needs to be sincere. When we see someone doing well, no matter their current status, they deserve recognition and encouragement. That way, they know that they are important and feel like a worthwhile person. If we withhold congratulations and encouragement when we see someone do well, we need to cross ourselves. People who do many things well are often the most critical of themselves and need some encouragement and congratulations. When we give it to others, they will pass it on.
