I can tell you from personal experience - this is a really damn good feeling to have! Whether it's in a relationship, or in a job - if you told you are appreciated in your current situation, when your old situation made you feel undervalued and worthless - it's really just an awesome feeling to have!
I have worked jobs in the past where I gave it my all, and it just wasn't good enough for one reason or another. I've been in relationships in the past where I gave it my all, and it just wasn't good enough, or the person made me feel totally worthless. Mainly my ex-husband. But I'm not going to dwell on that tonight.
Brian makes me feel so appreciated - and he tells me he appreciates me! Of course words don't always mean a lot, actions speak pretty loud. But the words are important, too, as they are reinforced by the actions.
Appreciating someone also means you don't take them for granted. You can rely on them for things on a regular basis, but don't just assume anything, and always let the person know you appreciate them. Life would be so much smoother if people would tell others that they appreciate them, and mean it.
