It’s OK to ask someone to praise you once in awhile.
No matter how old we are, we need to be recognized for what we do. It’s nice when it “just happens.” However, sometimes, it doesn’t. Unfortunately, when it doesn’t happen, many times we take that as a reason to get resentful. Not only does that ruin our attitude and make us feel bad, but it can damage the relationships that matter most to us.
Instead of feeling bad about not being recognized, point out what you did. Say how you feel about it. Ask to be recognized.
You did well. You deserve it. It’s fine to ask for it.
