You want to matter. At work and in life. Contribution to whatever organization we function in is important. It gives you a sense of worth. You matter.

Life fluctuates between these. It comes, then it goes. Doesn’t make your contribution less or more.
Your contribution just is.
Are you ignoring praises?
