Inspiration from Saania of Fun with Philosophy
Make Others Feel Important

I was at my favourite vegan café relishing my chocolate brownie when I witnessed two friends talking. Let’s call them Sarah and Angel. Sarah kept speaking away about her life and her problems, ranging from how her schedule is too hectic at school to how her roommate is too loud, leaving Angel with no opportunity to speak.

Similarly, yesterday I was at a dance party and I met a guy who wouldn’t stop boasting about how his family always spoilt him with luxury so he could live an opulent life. People who speak like that somehow imply that they are above and the other person is below. So I despised every moment of the time we spent with each other.


Though, it was interesting for me to witness these situations because it made me understand what makes some people more attractive than others and what makes us enjoy someone’s company over another’s. Think about…


The person who includes you in conversations when they sense you’re feeling awkward. The person who asks you to text them when you reach home safely. And if you forget, they text you to make sure you’re okay. The person who wishes you Happy Birthday at midnight. The person who remembers the tiny details of something you casually said at a point. The person who gets back to you on a book you recommended. The person who is simply patient with you. What is the one thing these people have in common?: they make others feel important.

I know I love it when someone makes me and my opinions seem like they matter. So why shouldn’t I make someone else feel that way? My learning: Make people feel good. Make them feel special. It makes a difference.

      1. Yes, where I live in Lahore, there are grass verges along the roads but there is always heavy traffic here. And I don’t venture out on my own to a park.

  2. Good morning, Rory! We live in an apartment complex that is gated. It’s not as beneficial as walking in a park but the premises is wooded and lovely. The layout with 11 buildings provides plenty of areas for a good walkabout. Outside the complex are well-traveled roads and not safe for walking. Have a great week ahead.

      1. 11 buildings – 270 units – 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms, 3 stories, 88 units have a fireplace. washer/dryer hookups, pool, workout room, laundry facility, Amazon hub, PO boxes, and garages. All units have a balcony and they accept pets. We have a 2 bedroom/2 bath, 2nd-floor apartment w/fireplace, and garage. It’s a nice place to live – quiet and very little crime.

      2. Complexes like ours are common in the US. You have to realize the structures in the US are not nearly as old as they are in Europe. Apartment living is very common here.

        We live in a suburb of Atlanta where they are just starting to build up, sadly. Many multifamily structures and shopping centers still sprawl over acres of land.
