Self-Praise: Pat yourself on the back

Sometimes I can find myself asking for praise from someone else.

I'm telling them that I have been successful in something and I'm hoping that they will say "oh well done!". You are not always going to hear what you want. Sometimes people will not see what you have accomplished as amazing. Sometimes only you will know that you have accomplished something worthwhile and amazing.

Take it in your stride, we are not always going to get the praise that we desire, perhaps deserve and we shouldn't go around asking for it.

You have to pat yourself on the back and cheer yourself on by the side lines of life. At the end of the day you are the only one who knows how hard you have worked and how much you wanted it etc.

Congratulate yourself and know that you have accomplished something on your own for yourself and no one elses opinion on it matters.

Your own praise is all that you need.

  1. Growing up, I always felt the need for my dad to praise me. But he just isn't like that. Still, I get the urge sometimes for him to tell me he's proud. He just says: you know I'm proud, no need to tell you. But sometimes I caught him looking at me with his fond look in his eyes, and then I know. :)
