Why is Courtesy Important and How Do I Say Thank You?


This article is a part of upcoming book: © "Personal and Confidential Letters to My Sons and Daughters"


Saying “thank you” is the clearest form of gratitude and is a form of courtesy. Human beings love acts of appreciation and courtesy. It’s a sign of good manners. God loves it too. Children and adults feel good about being appreciated especially if done in the language or manner that they can understand.  After all, we need one another and depend on each other.
That being the case, how then do you say “Thank you?” But first, let us deal with situations where saying thank you may arise.
 
Acts That Evokes Appreciation and Courtesy 
All human activities involve efforts and energy being spent. The activities may involve money, travelling, giving up something to help others such as charitable giving, and in general,  acts that support another. Amazingly, saying  “good morning” to someone is an act of blessing and wishing another person well. This greeting may bring a response of “thank you.”  Regardless, do remember to do your appreciation with the right attitude. A cynical “thank you” is no real “thank you”, though.  So, the following acts may evoke responses of appreciation:
 
a. Any offer or giving of help to you or to anyone around you.
b. Support  for you gave,  say by appearing on occasions when you are expected to be there as in marriage ceremonies, burial, graduation from school and so forth
c. Support with care in time of healthcare needs and financial difficulty,
d. Spiritual support and words of encouragement
e. Being trusted and dependent on in difficult and good times. If you are available when other has deserted your friend, then you are likely to be appreciated.
 
Ways by Which You can Show Appreciation If  You Receive Any of the Above Events. 
 
i) Say “thank you” immediately with a genuine heart and right attitude and possibly shake hands too if appropriate.
 
ii) You may clap hands as for your football / Soccer club or clap for a good speaker in an event.  You may also clap for hosts in marriage ceremony as may be required.
 
iii) You can appreciate someone by giving or sending flowers with or without appropriate greeting cards.
iv) You can send a text/email/ letter with appropriate content and image to go with it. You may simply write: “Thank you a lot for your help towards me”. 
 
v)  You may send or give other forms of gift or money as your culture demands
 
vi) You may pay personal visit or homage such as in saying thank you to a Monarch or President
 
Whatever form you choose to say thank you, remember your attitude matters and the genuineness of your heart in doing to. The method you choose to show appreciation should be appropriate to the situation and circumstances.  Example: Ask yourself, will it be nice if I send card or do a visit? Will email be right? Will or she accept text? 
 
Also, always remember to say “thank you” even for a mere “good morning” by a neighbour, not to mention other energy demanding helps and supports. Say "good morning" and "thank you" back. One good turn deserves another, they say.
