I Want To Feel Appreciated

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 304 People

    Just A Little..

    im not asking for everyone in my life to drop down to their knees in adoration and appreciation. i would just like someone to show me that what im doing is worth something. that they appreciate it and they appreciate me. just a little. i guess thats a selfish thought.
