Do you need to be validated by your SO? So you seek their approval? Does it bother you if they don't notice or appreciate how hard you work?

I was totally this way! It became harder when I left my job to open my own company because there is no one to tell me that I'm doing a great job or give me a pat on the back, etc.

There's lots of ways to overcome the "need" - I made a praise corner on my desk. I stuck every bit of praise I had ever received from my clients there, added a picture of my baby boy and anything else that made me feel really good.
