Not Everyone is Your Cheerleader
The approval of people we care about and respect is something few would deny desiring. When we make progress, win, create, or overcome, there is something inside us that craves acknowledgment and praise from those closest to us.
Throughout my own life, I have often been blessed to enjoy the love and support of people close to me. However, sometimes I’ve heard crickets when I all I wanted was acknowledgment. Occasionally, the people we expect to cheer us on don’t.
