dear mum

There seems to be a rampant misconception that positive enforcement is a common occurrence. I laugh when my mum tells me I'm right. After all, she's my mum. But even though she's glaringly biased, I would be nothing without her support.

Positive feedback is not a thing that comes around once a day, a few times a week, even every month or so. You're lucky if you have a parent or more who encourages you. You've as good as won a local lotto if a teacher with no ulterior motive is sufficiently moved to offer a pat on the back. You're surpassingly fortunate if your employer is sharp enough upstairs to comment on more than the areas you need improvement.

Everyone needs at least one person telling them on a regular basis that they make some kind of sense. Short of that we're as immaterial as gods without a solitary devotee.

Everything I'm about, everything I have planned, everything I'm working for... would all be meaningless if I couldn't say, "hey mum, look what I did!"
