You have mastered an immense challenge that few people could have handled, but you might be feeling like no one noticed! This resounding lack of praise could be disappointing, and it certainly is not appropriate. You deserve praise for your accomplishments. You can always pat yourself on the back, you know, so why not? Give yourself a treat today and promise yourself that the next time someone else does something wonderful, you’ll be the one cheering the loudest. Lead by example.
