I've noticed that in highs school & college I received a lot of recognition for being the "good" girl. Awards for good grades, athletic accomplishment etc. But now, that I'm 35 years old and a stay at home mom, despite the fact that my efforts are the same and I feel my success and accomplishments with the children are incredible, I do not receive any recognition or praise. So, now I feel this dissconnect and anger because I think what I was doing when I was young was not for myself but rather to receive praise and now that I see I continue to do things for praise (rather than for myself) and when I don't get it, I get angry.
