Being honest, no matter what I do I just feel like a failure. I’m trying so hard and yet, I’m not getting anything in return. I just want to be appreciated for what I do, is that too much to ask?
It’s never to much to be appreciated for the kind actions you do. For most of my life I’ve helped others with little in return. It filled me with self hate that eventually turned into projected hate towards everyone. I’ll be honest, it nearly broke me by the end of it. It takes time but keep doing what you’re doing regardless if people notice. What matters is you notice that you’re doing the right thing and eventually someone will see. Appreciation from others doesn’t matter if you can’t appreciate yourself.
