Coming from an abusive childhood, and a 23 year bad marriage, I am just now beginning to see. People need to feel loved and appreciated. For the longest time, I now realize, I tried to get my feelings of self-worth from my job. I am coming to appreciate that eveyone needs to feel loved and appreciated, especially from family. I thank God everyday that I have tried to do this with my daughter. Folks, that saying "As the twig is bent, so grows the tree" is true! I grew up feeling worthless, unloved, unappreciated. Until just recently, thought that I was not entititled to be loved and appreciated. Tell your friends, family, children that you love them and appreciate them.
