Getting recognition always feels good.
When we do something well, it’s always nice to receive feedback that confirms it. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Work hard, feel love hard. Seems reasonable enough.
However, when you feel like you’re not getting the recognition you deserve, it’s always a bad idea to go looking for validation from other people.
You can’t control other people. But you can control yourself.
You are the most reliable source of approval and validation in your world, so why not try looking there for the recognition you desire?
