how do you make others feel?

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Maya Angelou

I love this quote. It's one I strive to live by, and wished that I'd learned earlier in life to make others feel better about themselves. I've always been a giver --something people really don't understand, I think because it makes them nervous--but giving of yourself is only one part of the equation. I want others to be feel better after being around me.

I want to make them laugh, feel secure within themselves, and know that they are genuinely cared about.
