Being Remembered

Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou

Poet Maya Angelou said: “People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget how you made them feel.”

There is a lot of truth to that. If we want to be remembered, we have to make people feel like they matter. We all want to feel like we are loved and appreciated. If we can do that, we can make a lasting impact on people’s lives, perhaps to the extent that our influence will outlive us.

“…Love your neighbor as yourself.”—Matthew 22:39.
