The Ten Biggest Myths of Gratitude

 

Myth #1:  Showing gratitude is a sign of weakness which creates dependency.

Myth #2:  Gratitude is a function of the good circumstances in a person's life.

Myth #3:  People only express gratitude when they have hope of getting something more.

Myth #4:  Learning to have an attitude of gratitude is a worthless form of "Pollyanna pop psychology" which doesn't contribute to a person's character and well-being.

Myth #5:  Gratitude is a special feeling that is only meant to occur on rare occasions in a person's life when all their expectations are fulfilled. 

Myth #6:  Gratitude is something you reserve only for those times when someone saves you from a desperate situation. 

Myth #7:  If you express authentic gratitude often, it will cease to have any meaning.

Myth #8:  Gratitude to God should be expressed sparingly as each person has a limited amount which must be carefully rationed during their lifetime. 

Myth #9:  Only a fool would be grateful when something bad happens to them. 

Myth #10:  Cultivating an authentic attitude of gratitude to God for everything that occurs in one's life will not contribute to happiness and peace of mind.
