    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...

    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...

    I'll Be Stopping That Nonsense

    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.

    New Era

    I think I've mentioned this somewhere else before but I do. Everyone comes to me with their problems and I do enjoy helping them all. I love ti see them smile when I say something right, when things turn out well or just when I hear them laugh. Yet when I have my own problems I...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.
