Pay Off a Debt of Gratitude


A debt is something that you must pay back to someone. The sooner you pay it off, the more you feel relieved. When you repay it, you can keep your relationship smooth. Isn’t it the same with a debt of gratitude?

In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that we always live in debt to our families. We receive love without any condition, and hurt them or cause anxiety to them unknowingly. Nevertheless, we may take it for granted with a thought, ‘That’s okay because we are family.’

Greeting the end of the year, why don’t we settle our debts of grat-itude we have owed for a year to our family? Expressing gratitude and soothing pain one another, let us close the year warmheartedly and lightheartedly.

Apologize to your family if you have hurt any of them.
Say thank you if you haven’t expressed enough gratitude to your family.
Accept someone’s apology and gratitude gladly even if you are not satisfied enough.
Treat your family with the mind of paying off your debts for a month.
Have a family year-end party to pay off your debts of gratitude.
Repay a debt of gratitude with a small gift.
