Righteousness Behind the Scenes

The vast majority of all people are forgotten, even if they did extraordinary things that changed the course of history forever. It is simply impossible to give everyone credit for the good things that they have done. However, this does not mean that they should stop doing them. The invisible heroes are oftentimes the most important; The Page of Swords is one such hero. Oftentimes operating on behalf of someone else, The Page works below the radar of all, silently pulling the strings that control much larger and more well-known figures. They are the ones that hold the true power over a tense situation, but they will always do everything that they can to push for an outcome that prioritizes the greater good. Even if the don’t receive any praise for their work, The Page is comfortable with receding back into the shadows before embarking on their next silent journey. You are much like The Page; despite the fact that you have done so much for the benefit of others, it feels as though your very rarely receive any praise in return. However, this is not necessarily a source of distress for you. Attention may make you incredibly uncomfortable, or you may feel as though you haven’t done anything that is particularly worthy of praise. This is a sign that even if you are the main hero of the story, it isn’t time for you to take your place in the spotlight. Instead, continue doing your work from the shadows, and keep putting your best effort into producing results that are best for everyone involved. Even if someone else has take credit for your work, it’s okay. If you truly desire recognition, it will all come in due time. If not, then be comfortable in the fact that very few, if any, have recognized your work behind the scenes. If anonymity is what you crave, then it is anonymity that you will receive.
Page of swords meaning for relationship Even when the lives of two people are completely woven together, it can be easy to overlook the things that our partners do for us. Even if we may not be trying to hide our efforts in any way, subtle attempts to improve our partner’s lives can oftentimes go completely unrecognized. Little things, such as always buying their favorite snack at the grocery store, or taking time out of our day to dedicate our attention to our partners, aren’t always met with singing praise. However, this is fairly normal; we don’t do everything out of anticipation for some kind of reward. Much of this is simply part of being a good partner who prioritizes the health and balance of a romantic relationship. Despite the fact that we may crave the praise of our partner for every little thing that we do, it isn’t always realistic to expect them to show their unending gratitude for even the most mundane things. This may be a sign that you are seeking out attention for even the littlest things that you do, which may be causing some unease in your current relationship. While everything you are doing is perfectly appropriate for a caring partner to do, you can’t help but feel disappointed when they don’t praise you for your efforts. Perhaps you made them their favorite dinner after a long day of work, but they were too tired to eat when they got home. Or maybe you rented their favorite movie for the two of you to watch together, but they requested that you watch something else instead. There is nothing wrong with your attempts to shower your partner with affection and support, but your expectations for what you will receive in return have been set a little too high. Your partner may have other things on their mind at the moment; this does not mean that they aren’t grateful for your recent efforts. They may be planning something big to show you their thanks, or may even be slightly ashamed upon realizing that you’ve noticed the way they may have been struggling recently. The best thing for you to do right now is to continue loving and supporting them from the sidelines, even if your actions aren’t always noticed. Soon, they will come to realize everything that you have done for them, and they will find a way to show their appreciation in a way that they believe you will enjoy.

Page of swords meaning for job and career A work team is like a machine; made up of many cogs that all work in conjunction to make the entire process run smoothly and efficiently. Oftentimes, there are many small parts of this machine that go largely unrecognized, despite the fact that the whole machine would collapse without them. While it is normal to expect some recognition for a job well done, it is also unrealistic to expect your coworkers to be constantly singing your praise. Unless you are going above and beyond to excel in your work duties, greatly surpassing the achievements of others, your performance will usually be interpreted as you simply doing your job. The pay and benefits that you receive in turn are your due praise. Despite the fact that you have done nothing but pour your time and efforts into excelling in the workplace recently, it feels as though your efforts have gone largely unnoticed. You may not even necessarily be looking for praise, but your constant effort to do the best by your employers feels like it should be worth of some kind of recognition. This may be especially frustrating if you’ve seen others being recognized, and may be even worse if you feel as though you perform better than these people. However, this is not something to let yourself get stressed over. Forcing others to praise you for your work will only make it less genuine, and your coworkers may begin to see you as conceited or desperate for attention. Remember that there are most likely many other employees just like you that are working just as hard, but also aren’t getting any shout-outs from your superiors. Instead, now is the time to continue working as hard as you can, even if nobody recognizes your efforts. Remember that most of what you do in the workplace is monitored in one way or another; even if it isn’t recognized immediately, the consequences of your efforts can oftentimes be traced directly back to you. Your turn in the spotlight may not be soon, but it is on the way. By keeping a consistent effort and focusing on your work instead of your reputation, it will make your praise feel all the more sweet. None will be able to deny that you deserve this recognition, and your silent dedication to your work may even open up a slew of new opportunities that you had never even considered before.
Page of swords reversed main meaning In order to gain recognition for your actions, it is far more important to highlight your own strengths than to point out the weaknesses of others. When The Page of Swords appears in the reversed position, it may be a sign that you have attempted to damage the reputations of others so as to build your own up. However, this will not earn you the type of recognition that you truly crave. It will most likely only lead to animosity amongst those around you, and some may even start to loathe your for your cutthroat ambition. Instead, consider the fact that it is possible for you all to excel together. Just because the efforts of one person stick out as particularly extraordinary, this does not mean that everyone else is underperforming. Not only does this better capture the truth of the situation, it will make the praise that you receive all the more genuine.
