Expressing Appreciation

Express appreciation to celebrate the contribution to wellbeing

1. the actions that have contributed to our well-being

2. the particular needs of ours that have been fulfilled

3. the pleasureful feelings engendered by th...e fulfilment of those needs

Sometimes all three can be conveyed by a smile or a simple “Thank you”

Receiving Appreciation

NVC encourages us to receive appreciation with the same quality of empathy we express when listening to other messages.

We hear:

1. what we have done that has contributed to others’ well-being;

2. we hear their feelings and the needs that were fulfilled;

3. we take into our hearts the joyous reality that we can each enhance the quality of others’ lives.
