The word that comes to mind when I think about this week for you is disaffection. I don’t use that word in every day parlance, but feeling alienation or as if affection “has left the building” may capture your mood, especially at home and work. Your best bet would be to do some kind of stay-cation or get some spa time. Or find something to do that allows you to feel appreciated, even if you have to do it your damn self. But the thing that won’t be helpful is to push too hard for some tenderness or affection in the places that you want to feel it most.  If you saved the world at your job…and no one noticed, don’t sulk too heavy or brag.  In my experience, what happens when you get too attached to accolades or critiques, you get distracted from the clarity of your own voice and your own desire.
