Thank You | Why Is It So Hard To Say?

Monday, May 10, 2010 JS Hanniffy 7 Comments

One day a friend of mine who was Indonesian and have been living in Europe for some decades complained about her Indonesian friend's attitude: according to her she's been helping the woman during her financial difficulty, but she feels that the woman is difficult to please and the most of it is she never said thank you to her.

"Is it too hard to say thank you?" She grumbly asked me. 

It's not hard. It's just a forgotton culture. It due to we do only occassionally in daily life --- even not too often. We might not know or irresponsive at all about it; however, a thank you word is not just about a respect to other person, but it's also a self-respect. In other words, if you don't know how to respect yourself, how then you know to respect with others?

So, lesson number one is, however close your friendship with someone; always put in the frontline a self-respect -- and it's simple to do: "Please" when you ask something, and "Thank you"  for what you've got, that is not a hard thing to do, is it?

Just want to say "THANK YOU" for the award tagging from "Bundanya Sasha", Mbak Reni. Thank you Mbak Reni.

Nice saying shows your character but that doesn't mean you can criticize. You can still do both in nice and polite way.
