Running errands for others leaving ourselves last. Making sure all needs are met, all jobs done properly and to the best of our ability. Be it parenting, be it work, be it anything in general. Sometimes we can feel as though we are not appreciated. And sometimes we are right.
Life is certainly full of ups= and downs.. and we do come to find out that some who we trusted can no longer be trusted. We also find that we were not appreciated.
Most of us can pinpoint this to a relationship of any kind, be it romantic, family, friendships, colleagues, managers, sometimes our children..
I just wanted to post this as it seems fitting today. Someone out there does appreciate you for all you are. For who you are, for everything you have done for them and they'll not forget that / those things for the rest of their lives.
You may not hear it very often
Or see it very often........ in fact, you may never know at all.
But trust someone, at least 1 person .. will always be grateful for something you did for them.
Trust and carry that with you, no time is ever wasted, and whilst some will always overlook the great things you do for them, there's always a few who cherish what you've done. And many times it's been life-altering, even if it's something small to us. You know the strength given with one hug... one smile.... one listening ear. Nothing to us. Everything to them. You're good enough.
The others? .... They don't matter.
