How To Get Over Feeling Underappreciated
An iron law of history is that greatness and goodness are rarely appreciated in their own time.
None of great people of the past were fully appreciated in their own time. Even now they are given short shrift by historians and academics.
So the question is, why do you think it’s going to be any different for you?
The truth is, you will never be fully appreciated. Not by your parents. By your bosses. By your country. By your own children. But then again, why should you be? Appreciating you is not their job.
It’s your job.
That’s why it’s called self-esteem.
Expecting, or worse, demanding approval or recognition from other people is a dead end. It’s outside your circle of control. Are you going to anchor your happiness and self-worth on something as precarious as that? No, you have to base your own appreciation on the actions you take in service of what you know is right, and being the person you know it’s right to be.
Leave it at that.
الفراشة رغم جمالها "حشرة "،والصبار رغم قسوته "زهرة "،فلا تحكم على الناس من اشكالهم بل احكم عليهم بما تحتويه قلوبهم. The butterfly despite its beauty is an "insect "and cactus despite its cruelty is a "flower"،do not judge people of their forms, but judge them with what their hearts contain. #حكم#wisdom#اقتباسات#colorfy
That has been my VERY clear ‘job’ this week. As if the Universe is not-so-gently whispering “not yet...just a little longer...wait for it”
I HAVE NO PATIENCE!!!! But, fine. (I’ve learned not to fight these kinds of messages) #stubborn#surrender ::
So, like the good student 👩🏼🎓 I am, I snuck out of the city to find some quiet in CT (shout out to @ellecallanan for opening up her beautiful home)💗 #sisterhood ::
As the to-do lists continue to swirl around my head, here I sit. In action and inaction all at once.
Prepared. Overwhelmed. Relaxed. Expanded. Expended. Breathing.
TRUSTING (which I’m much better at doing when I’m in control🤣)
I’ve been exploring #devotion to my Soul all week...and She has spoken.
How are you moving into the weekend / out of the week?
✨🌟 Happy Friday, lovely instagram family, what are you doing for you today? 💖💝💖
🌟Have you got the Friday feeling? 🎉🎈🎊🦄 🌈💖🌸🌟Maybe you have that feeling every day, like I do? 🌟 💜
💗 I know you are all super kind and lovely people and don’t need reminding to do nice things for others...but I think one or two of you might need a tincy wincy little nudge to give yourself a little loving too 💗 💜
💗 So, let’s all make a pact to do something we love today...to pamper ourselves...whether that’s a yoga session, a massage or a chat with our BFF 💜 💗 Are you in??
Whatever we choose, let’s do it mindfully, experiencing it completely 💗 💜
💗 Love you with all your heart
I’ve had a lovely day having my hair done and going out with my mother for a nice pot of decaffeinated tea (I haven’t drunk caffeine for nearly twenty years) and a toasted cheese scone. Now I’m relaxing with the kittens (who are already bigger than most cats. Ragdolls don’t finish growing till they’re 4 and Herbie and Oscar are only 1!)
💗Please drop me a comment and tell me what you do 🌸

Got treated black? Not really thou. You see, I don’t believe in color. Racism was created by you know who. It’s a sick mindset that people still haven’t risen above. We even have African Americans hating each other more then the European Americans do. This all has to stop. Treat people based on their energy and character. Yeah I know that’s super hard, being how we were all programmed! But you now have a choice to reprogram! Program love and generosity. If you a racist, please unfollow me. I don’t care about your ethnicity, unfollow me. If you about love and respect, let’s build. Enjoy your day. #facts#race#racism#reality#love#white#black#respect#appreciation#ignorance#share#viral#knowledge#wisdom#yourwelcome

كيت العفوية 💕
لما تزوجت كيت، ما عمري حسدتها على ما هي عليه من مكانة ووجاهة، وأنها أصبحت دوقة...الخ، بل دائماً أغبطها على فانزاتها!😁

لما أكون ماكله ليمون 2️⃣
لما أحد يدغدغني او أكون بمزح مزح ثقيل على أحد 3️⃣
لما يطلع شكلي وأنا اتحدى أحد 4️⃣
لما أعطس وامسح أنفي 5️⃣
لما أتحمس وأقول يس👍 6️⃣
ولما أكلم طفل 7️⃣ باختصار، لما تطلع حركات من وجهي بعفوية ومن غير قصد، فيقولون لي، يالله مرررة كيوت وظريفة ومهضومة ونحبها كيف ما يكون شكلها، مثل ما بيعملوا معها فانزات كيت 😁👍 فانزات كيت، انتم رائعووون 👏😁 اخر صورة لكيت وويليام توضح انها عفوية من زمان 😁👌

Do what you love and that’s all that matters 💕 pardon my french but f the rest ✨
some people will get it and some won’t! Who cares, just do you 😘 . 😘🌱 .
Sometimes we get so caught up in taking care of everything else that we forget to take care of ourselves. As strong as we are, it’s still not a sustainable way for us to live. How can you prioritize more [ space ] for yourself?✨✨✨
