We all like appreciation. And sometimes we even long for that – a pat on the back. When desired and not achieved, we feel empty. An emptiness that comes from the craving for a pat or a word! Actually, by letting yourself to that feeling of emptiness, what are you doing? You are belittling your own hard work. Your efforts have an innate value of its own if done with conviction and love. When you yourself do not appreciate it and fill yourself with the emptiness created by the lack of appreciation from others, you are not doing justice to yourself. Learn to accomplish your task even the smallest one, with the conviction of its value and to see the difference it makes. You will not be haunted by your desire for a pat!
