Someone wiser than me once said “People decide how you must feel about something by what you do, not what you say.”
This evening I was reflecting over a workshop I once participated in on work-place behaviors. It was one of those workshops where you wondered why someone actually has to tell you some of this stuff. As is often the case, personal behaviors and styles are the key in any relationship — personal ones and work-place ones. So we included personal topics.
We were asked the question “How does your husband or wife know you love them?”
The usual responses where people talked about remembering flowers on a birthday or chocolates on some other occasion were mentioned. I never much cared for these typical answers.
I raised my hand and said, “I make sure there’s fresh fruit in the refrigerator.”
