“Woe is me…can’t anyone see how hard I am working for…..(fill in the blank)!!!? Can’t they see how I am sacrificing for the good of the cause? Why am I not getting more recognition and praise?” How often does litany this go through our minds? And why? Is it because we are suffering from the martyr complex? I see this complex in a lot of people, and have suffered it myself many times. It is common among people who do volunteer work, be it among church or non church environments. Is there a way to combat it?
