Pigeon of Discontent: "No One Appreciates Me

Each week, I post a video about some Pigeon of Discontent raised by a reader. Because, as much as we try to find the Bluebird of Happiness, we're also plagued by the Pigeons of Discontent.

This week's Pigeon of Discontent, suggested by a reader, is: "No one appreciates me."

No One Appreciates Me.
