On Appreciation

No one can appreciate me to the degree that I deserve.

As much as someone may enjoy, honor, or find what I offer as useful or even inspirational… even life changing, no one can appreciate me to the degree I deserve.

For as much as someone may value what I offer,
no one knows what it took for me to become the person I am,
to be able to offer what I have.

No one knows… no one else was there to know what journey I traveled,
what obstacles and barriers I surmounted… what monsters or demons I fought and may still fight,
what pain and trauma I suffered to become who and what I am to be able to offer what I can.
Only I was there… only I know… and therefore, only I can give myself the appreciation I deserve.

If I do not give myself that appreciation, no one else ever will.
