Supporting your wife and helping her feel successful despite her mother's lack of recognition requires empathy, validation, and unconditional support. Start by acknowledging your wife's achievements and expressing pride in her accomplishments. Validate her feelings and experiences regarding her mother's lack of recognition, letting her know that her worth and success are not dependent on external validation. Encourage your wife to focus on her own sense of fulfillment and satisfaction rather than seeking approval from others. Additionally, create a supportive environment where your wife feels valued, respected, and appreciated for her talents and achievements. Celebrate her successes, no matter how big or small, and offer words of encouragement and affirmation. Encourage your wife to surround herself with supportive friends and family members who appreciate and celebrate her accomplishments. By providing unconditional support, validation, and encouragement, you can help your wife feel successful and empowered in spite of her mother's behavior.
