You Matter to Me Day

You Matter to Me Day is celebrated on October 7th and is a holiday that is often underestimated, but has many admirers! Simple words spoken from the heart can make a big difference and there is only one chance to say: “I need you!”


You Matter to Me Day was formed in 2010 by Linda Jue, after she experienced a traumatic event. Her close friend and his son had been in a fatal accident and it made her realize that she had never expressed her feelings to him. This made her realize how important it is to tell people that they are loved and needed, as we never know what could happen tomorrow.

Interesting facts

It is important for a person to hear the phrase “I need you” because it:

  • Can be reassuring and make them feel loved;
  • Lifts their spirits and make them happier;
  • Encourages them to express their own feelings in response;
  • Can reduce any feelings of longing or sadness.

How to take part

Celebrate the holiday with your family and loved ones by asking them how their day has been, and telling them how much they mean to you. If your loved ones are far away, you can send them postcards with words of love and kindness. Showing love and kindness to others can ultimately help to make the world a better place.
