Good Morning! And I really hope you have a great week ahead!
Today, I just want to thank you for being you. You are doing a great job. I hope you are being a good human being too.
We all crave for appreciation – that is true human nature. Being taken for granted by partners, boss always pointing out at faults and friends being ungrateful – we all have these situations which make us yearn for appreciation even more.
And what happens when we don’t get it? I became extremely grumpy at my workplace. For sometime, I even distanced myself from my “ungrateful” friends. And no number of taunts are ever enough for your partners when you see that you are being taken for granted.
But does that help?
The major problem arises when you start expecting a “thank you” in return for something you are supposed to do anyway. Your salary comes on time. Appreciation can certainly take a back seat. Do you believe in Karma? Your good karma points will always come back to you. An immediate “thank you” is not really necessary.
After being that partner in a relationship who tends to take my bae for granted, I know that I don’t always thank him but I acknowledge and appreciate everything he does and I make sure that he gets to know that too!
Having said that, I absolutely don’t mean that you become a saint and keep on doing things when you see no outcome at all – salary, love or anything for which you are working for. In fact, you know what? Go and thank yourself for the efforts you put in and for any job well done. It feels great!
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.Budhha
If the lack of appreciation bothers you so much, ask for it. It might work well in relationships bit I am not sure how rewarding it is at workplace!
If you feel the you are not appreciated enough, breathe and give yourself a pat on your back. You are doing a good job.
Have a wonderful week ahead!
