Why Is Appreciation For Women So Often Neither Expected Nor Given?!

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.

I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.

There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.

Just like everyone else, women need love and support

It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.

It is obligatory to realize the value of admiring energy one puts into a relationship. A woman is always haunted by questions even if she is an achiever. Is she doing enough? Is she good enough? There is always the demon of doubt which terrorizes her. She tries her best to disguise her disbelieves but it creeps in sometimes at the break of dawn when she lies awake in the bed. Many times, their efforts go unrecognized.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way she sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her. The little efforts counts and she cherishes these moments till her very last breath.

But truly, does it ever cross the mind of people around her?

Often it has been explained to us that execution of responsibilities need not be treasured. Then again, the best version of ourselves reminds us that we do not need an esteemed approval. However, the little pieces of the leisure are spent wondering. Wondering! How amazing it would be to be told that our time and attempts matter.

The darkness of the night brings forth these desires. Every time, we shut those out of the window of hope! Waiting for them to come as visitors through the door of conviction someday. Maybe because, we have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will.
