    Left Behind.

    I'm getting impatient. When will someone acknowledge me and actually realize that i too have needs. The number of times i've been taken advantage might be the same as the number of strands of hair on my head.

    All the Time

    Have you ever experienced the kind of love that rips you apart?. He was that love to me. He still that love to me. It's one of those things that you can't go thru life without. Today I was watching "The Bridges of Madison County", and I understood why it made me cry so...

    Definitely In This Situation....

    Maybe I shouldn't write this as I had some bad comments from people before but going to take the risk anyway. I had a colleague who made a real effort to befriend me as I looked after her baby son in my daycare. She used to say him and her loved me, act very mothering towards me...

    Always

    I always think other people have needs that are more important than mine.  When I was in law school, I worked at a gas station.  I would sometimes work double shifts when people asked me to.  Then,  I would come home to a pile of homework and have to stay up...

    Putting Others Before Me

    I often find myself putting others before me.  The problem is that often times, I don't take care of myself.  I need to learn balance in this.

    No Friends

    i always feel that i should put others before me so then they feel like i'm a great friend and will continue to be friends with me. If i worry about myself before others, i feel like people will think i'm selfish and a horrible friend.

    Always

    I always put everyone else before me. I am never number 1 in my life. I am always going to put people before me, and nothing about that is ever going to change. I will always put my friends, my family, everyone before me.

    I need to learn the right ratio! How much of me for me and how much for everyone else?

    That's right! They just don't feel the need to. They are happy all on their own. People that always put others down are trying to make themselves feel better. This is warped!
