I Am Not Appreciated

    By My Family So what's new?

    Nothing really. Just that I keep opening myself up and getting hurt, and now I'm tired. Way to kick me when I'm down. Why is it, that everyone else treats me so special, yet those closest to me, make me feel so unappreciated. No matter what I do, it's never good enough. Is it me...

    Unappreciated

    My fiance is getting on my last nerve!  He was actually living with a family member and since we moved here, we rented a house.  He doesn't do ANYTHING except go to work and maybe twice a week take off the garbage.  It seems that he expects me to do everything...

    I Just Want To Feel Appreciated

    I hate it when I am the only person to do EVERYTHING around the house when the other 4 members of the family are capable of taking care of themselves! The thing is, I don't mind doing it, but it's the feeling of being taken for granted that gets me mad! There are no "thank yous...

    What Do I Look Like, a Ready-teller?!?!?!?!

    All my life, I've busted my butt to live somewhat comfartably. I've never paid a bill late, or even returned a library book late for that matter. I don't live a lavish lifestyle by ANY means, I didn't own a car until I was 25, and since winter where I live hits 60 below zero with...

    One Girl's Rant

    I do so much for my family, and yet I feel as if I'm overlooked and even ignored, at times. I cook, I clean, I wash our stupid dog... Everything. Even when I'm so bloody sick I feel like the living dead, I've still got that rag in my hand and I'm cleaning up after someone else...

    Time to vent. So I'm in the military, I work every day all day. The only thing I expect my wife to do is keep the house clean, no job expected. Well I am the stepfather of her three children, I have never gotten a thank you for taking on the challenge of being a stepfather...

    WHY?

    I spend time with my bro, even sometimes when I don't feel like it, but feel he needs it. Sometimes, I know he needs it. He doesn't spend much time out of the house, and well, I don't either, but we live in different house holds. I don't mind the loneliness most days, but he, on...

    I Sometimes Wonder...

    I often find it difficult to connect with people online. The only reason I am on the internet so much is because there are no social opportunities for me on this damn island where I live. I have tried several dating websites, social networking such as Myspace, Facebook, etc. and...

    By Others.

    But I am appreciated by the Lord, because I know He appreciates me by His finished work at the cross, and what He does for me every moment. He is the Lord of my life. I appreciate His influence upon me. He's the only one I can feel love from. He's the only one I can trust. And...

    They Only See What I'M Not Doing....

    I'm know I'm not appreciated by the people I should be, but I'm not taking it any longer. I just have to say when it comes to women and my choices in them, I seem to always find the ones that never notice all of the little things I do for them, but they look at all of the things...
