Recently, many students who took the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) breathed a sigh of relief after knowing their results, in addition to the satisfactory results obtained.

However, a Twitter sharing by TV3’s personality, Fedtri Yahya, on the subject has attracted the attention of many.

The Twitter post reveals the attitude of a mother who is not proud of the results obtained by her son.

Despite getting a very good result, it was not celebrated at all by the mother, who even disputed the amount of ‘A’ obtained.

The student clearly felt upset with what the mother did.

He was envious to see the mothers of other students for showing a ‘supportive’ behaviour towards their children.

What It Means To Have Words Of Affirmation As A Love Language

According to experts, each person “speaks” different love languages: words of affirmation, acts of service, quality time, physical touch, and gifts.

Words of affirmation communicate your love, appreciation, and respect for another person. 

They’re positive words and phrases used to uplift. 

What’s more, these compliments and words of encouragement don’t have to be said directly to the person.

Examples of words of affirmation:

  1. I just want to let you know how proud of you I am.
  2. You work really hard for us, and even when things may feel tough, I just want you to know how appreciative I am.
  3. I feel so lucky to have you.
  4. I am here if you need me and I want to help support you in any way I can.
