Feeling unappreciated and taken for granted can cut a deep wound in your self-esteem. As the pain gets deeper, your sense of worth and identity will follow. Your lack of appreciation can make you question who you are and what you’ve done in your life. When all you receive are negative criticisms and unappreciation, you can easily fall into depression. We feel unappreciated because deep inside, we have expectations that haven’t been met.

12 Ways to Build A Healthy Long-term Relationship
Everyone dreams to be in a healthy and long-term relationship until the difficult days come. It takes a lot of hard work and patience for a relationship to work and maintain long-term. Unfortunately, not everyone is willing to sacrifice for the person they love. Not everyone is ready to compromise when dilemmas come out of nowhere. It seems that everybody wants the pretty side of love until they face the truth that it isn’t pretty at all. Nowadays, people see a long-term relationship as a luxury or a privilege because not everybody can maintain a relationship for years, or possibly until marriage. As sad as this sounds, this is reality.
How to Work Hard Consistently Without Feeling Burnout
Being consistent means matching vision with discipline. Being consistent entails a strong grasp and full outlook of the big picture while working on the tasks at hand to accomplish the small goals. When you’re consistent, you train your mind to not only get used to what you’re doing but also to feel a sense of accomplishment every time you maintain the streak of doing good habits and fulfilling your promises. When we do something regularly, we build stronger morale within ourselves because we’d want to do better and quicker at our work. Not only do we cultivate momentum but also pure optimistic energy that contributes greatly to the speed and direction towards our ambitions.
15 Ridiculous Misconceptions About Relationships
Being in a relationship with someone is never smooth-sailing, most especially in the beginning (after all that best foot forward act). Whatever it is that deals with human interaction, it’s never simple. Just because it’s a relationship composed of two good individuals, doesn’t mean both of them are going to have it easy. Every relationship faces arguments and disagreements every now and then, no matter how in sync you think they are.
Like any other relationship, it needs constant understanding and patience from both parties to achieve the desired goal of mutual agreement. The process isn’t going to be pretty; that’s just the way it is. Everybody always wants his/her needs to be met first (and thinks he/she deserves more compromise than the other) and that’s normal for a person to think that way because we’re wired by instinct to cater to our self-interest needs first.
