The Power of Appreciation

Great quotes on Appreciation

Show her Appreciation

A few men do appreciate a few women.

How can you tell if men appreciate women?

What do you admire in your partner?

Couples who maintain a happy relationship appreciate each other.

I observed this behavior in the small community, and felt taken aback by what I had discovered.

People enjoy feeling love and gratitude. You want to feel safe and good in your relationship.

People should be treated humanely.

Sometimes a few men are not open to expressing their emotions.

This is cultural from what I experienced.

An Example:

A local guy came to visit us. He is a traditional type of person.

They lounged on the couch and chatted for a bit. Thereafter, I poured both a drink each and my husband thanked me for the drink.

This guy was not impressed by that.

His question as follows:

''Why do you say thank you to your wife for the drink?''

My husband couldn't believe it either!


I tried to explain why, but he did not look at it, as it should be.

The man insisted that saying, ''thank you,'' to your wife is not the way.

He has never said ''thank you'' to his wife.

I found that to be strange.

He mentioned the following to my husband.

''She is your wife and there is no need to say thank you.''

It was at that moment that I realized the cultural behavior from this man.

You show appreciation to your partner in actions and through your words.

In this case, it is not allowed by culture to appreciate his woman.

Most couples treat their wives as they should traditionally.

You make your partner feel special and loved.

It is hard to grasp the traditional lives in different parts of the world.

The less-educated and traditional lifestyles cloud the minds of these individuals.

Kindness, good manners, and helpful ways show appreciation to your partners.

The local man is a domineering individual.

He does not show his wife appreciation. The belief that his wife is there and has taken her for granted.

So, appreciation is not required in his marriage.

Culture has a lot to do with that.

Women deserve to be treated special. If you don't treat your woman special someone else will take your place.

A woman holds most part of every home.

Appreciation is great and requires the attention of all women.

Most women inspire you, and are courageous through all times in a marriage.

Respect your woman.

Look up to your woman.

Any woman deserves the same treatment. To be spoken to with care and love.

Time and effort made to be with her shows she is your priority.

Your tone of voice when speaking to her is another way to show appreciation.

I observed a new culture, and found out in most cultures appreciation is not shown to partners. The culture allows for such differences with married couples.

Be appreciative to all the women in your life.

The mothers, sisters, and daughters need appreciation from their men.

Whether, it is a wonderful time of the year, or that special day show appreciation.

You don't have to wait for a special time of the year, or for that special day.

You can show appreciation any time of day, or night.

Take time and appreciate the woman in your life.

Don't ignore that woman in your life.

Your mother gave you life and raised you, also, helped you get through college.

You achieved your goals through your mother's confidence.

She influenced you to move on to better choices.

Remember your daughters and sisters.

Appreciate your daughters and sisters.

Your sister teased you and got you frustrated at times.

Learn to appreciate your relationship.

Sisters need their men and brothers to look up at them and to appreciate their daily attempts.

Everything you do in life requires appreciation!

Don't neglect your sisters. They were your best friends at one time.

Sometimes everything in life could feel broken and scattered.

Appreciation brings you back from that not so good feeling.

The older and wiser are your mothers.

The woman who inspires you and those who don't inspire still need that appreciation.

When you choose a partner to spend the rest of your life with, you know what you got yourself into.

The choices you make allow you to accept the other person.

Women shouldn't be ignored, or treated badly by anyone.

You dive into a relationship and expect it to work.

The relationship requires two people to work at what they really want from each other.

Women show determination to improve on their skills.

Appreciation showed in such moments applies a good character.

What do women want from men?

Women need an honest opinion from their men.

An appreciation shown courageously.

Guidance from you shows her appreciation.

Give an honest opinion and get out with it.

Good communication is a good way to show your appreciation.

She will appreciate it if you gave her time to be with friends.

Help wherever you can to give her the good impression of you.

Decision-making is not always a walk in the park. Offer your advice.

It is difficult in the mind of most men to understand a woman.

To love your woman that shouldn't be a problem.

The women who are not able to speak for themselves, I feel sad for those women.

These women are terrified and fear men.

The local man's wife is fearful of her husband.

She won't speak up and that to me is not the way for any woman.

A woman has a powerful mind and should have freedom of speech.

Be grateful to your woman.

She makes you happy and makes your daily routine easy.

Don't look at her as a possession instead look at her as appreciation.

When you appreciate what you have, you will have more into your life.

Forget about what you don't have focus on what you already have in your life.

You accept, your partner, understand, and appreciate your partner.

All three aspects should be part of your relationship.

When one of the three is not practiced daily your relationship won't be the same.

The missing aspect does not balance out your lifestyle.

A man won't let a good woman walk away from their relationship.

A boy-minded individual would lose his pride due to his ego.

A beautiful woman will get old and show an older face. Deep down she will always be that inspirational person.

You can't change each other appreciate each other.

Make her smile and your day will be perfect.

Love is showing appreciation.

You won't notice what is being done for you until the other person stops doing that for you.

You don't notice what goes on around you and for you.

Appreciate your woman and don't take for her granted.

You feel belonged in a relationship when appreciated for the little things you do for each other.

Be grateful to those who make your life easier.

In showing gratitude you are showing good manners.

Be yourself and appreciate life more each day.

The above may not apply to all individuals. It is up to you to make your life special.

Do you show appreciation to the woman in your life?

Show Gratitude!

“Be thankful for what you have and you’ll end up having more.” Oprah Winfrey

Appreciate all Women

      Hi Devika,

      The truth is every woman wants to be loved and treated with respect and so does every man. The alternate is taking the rocky road. Shame people don't realise that until it is too late.

      Devika, this is another thought-provoking hub. I must say, I'd most probably emptied the glass over the man's head, he doesn't want a wife, he wants a slave. Having said that, there are some languages that do not have a word for either please or thank you. Nice work.

      All you say here is so true Devika. It's a two way street..love apreciation and respect has to be shown on both sides, otherwise the relationship is doomed to fail. I'm some cultures unfortunately this is the exception rather than the norm however. I know my wife and I would not still be together after more than 30 years if we didn't show each other appreciation and respect.

      Respect and valuing the other person are cornerstones to a healthy relationship. Otherwise, marriage would seem so much like a prison term.

      Very much inspiring post. Your views are true. It is a give and take. Show respect and gratitude to your women and take respect from them. Saying 'thanks' is one simple favour you are doing to your woman which will make her happy. In the same way, you will be happy throughout your day when you receive one thanks from your woman. Women should be treated as our equivalents, if not more.

      Like the article. It is so important to appreciate the person taking time to lovingly add to your life.When someone gives to you it should be human nature to appreciate and want to reciprocate. Everyone loves the fruits of love-they are most appreciated.

      Nice and thought provoking hub!

      We as human beings must appreciate our fellow humans. Fortunately I have always seen men appreciating women in my family and around me. In any case it should be mutual.

      Thank you for this interesting hub!

      Different cultures have different ideals. In some cultures it seems that women are nothing but slaves. Everyone, man or woman should be appreciated!

      Devika , another great read. Women should be appreciated and my wife certainly is. However, different parts of the world are lagging behind the progress of the west in this respect. Your guest was uneducated and rude ,but there are men who are much worse. Those that rape, beat and use women as slaves in many parts of the world. Sadly I can not see this improving substantially in the foreseeable future. Good write which will draw a wide variety of views well done.

      Devika, there are some men (like my husband) who do show their appreciation. I have not seen this with a lot of men. I see my son does show appreciation.

      I hope all is well with you.

      Blessings and Hugs my friend.

      I wish my ex-husband was able to appreciate not only me, but everybody who had made, and is still making, his life worthwhile to live. Sadly, he, too, never learned the art of showing appreciation and gratitude. Or perhaps this is not an art, but simply good manners? Today's women, especially in Western culture, are no longer willing to be taken for granted. I'm so glad you have a husband who appreciates you, dear Devika :)

      This is a really nice article. Sadly, I think the very men who need to read this article will just shrug it off and not read it at all. The part that resonated with me was when you wrote, "A boy-minded individual would lose his pride due to his ego.". I knew someone who always liked to say, "I'm a proud man" to explain his behavior, which was not always nice especially to women. He was very sad when he was old.
