What Happens When People Find Out What Their Loved Ones Really Think Of Them

If you ever feel as though you aren’t good enough, this heartwarming video might make you think differently.

In this social experiment, Strayer University and A Plus asked six people to rate how successful they think their loved ones really are, and the results will make you tear up a bit.

The three minute film starts with six participants rating how successful they think they are out of ten.

And most of them don’t feel particularly great about themselves to begin with.

And they give themselves some pretty low marks.

But then their family, friends and partners are asked how well they think the participants are doing in life.

As well as having plenty of nice things to say about them.

And it soon becomes clear that when it comes to relationships, success isn’t about how much you earn, but how you make others feel.

And these guys make the people in their lives feel pretty damn good!

If this project shows us anything, it’s that we’re our own harshest critics, and it’s good to take a step back every now and then and try to see ourselves through the eyes of those who care about us.

After all, you might think you’re a five in life, but you’ll always be somebody else’s ten!
