As we live in a social world and we interact with thousands of people every day, we see them doing right or wrong acts. When they do something bad, we warn them and let them know about its outcomes and when someone does a good action, we admire them and appreciate their qualities which lead them to do what they did. It’s very important to appreciate a good person when he does something great for others or for the overall society because this will make him proud on himself and he will continue doing same good actions in the future. If we don’t appreciate and only criticize, no one will want to do anything good because our behavior is not appropriate about it.
