Deep down, each of us wants to feel respected and appreciated.
We want to be seen and heard, and we want to feel as if the people around us at least try to understand us.
We want our presence to matter and for our input and output to be of value to the community we are a part of.
Without this, we will never feel fulfilled in our work.
With this, however, our work will not feel like work at all.
