What's more painful? Being under-appreciated or being wrongfully appreciated?Well, if the title isn't clear enough...ever had this point in your life where you gave your everything, put 200% of your skills into work, but never got appreciated for that? That has happened to me a several times. That's under-appreciation or un-appreciation, where you don't get appreciated at all or appreciated enough for your work.
But sometimes you are wrongfully appreciated. For instance, I write poems right? And some of my poems, I find them so bad that I'm embarrassed. But people end up liking it instead. The work I produced completely lacked passion yet I got appreciated. And that's very painful. I'd rather not be appreciated than being wrongfully appreciated.
So according to me, being wrongfully appreciated is more painful because appreciation sounds like sarcasm then. What according to you is more painful?
