    Submissive?

    I do feel best when giving.It makes me happy to make others happy... gives me pleasure to provide pleasure for others. I believe that's a big reason why I am submissive. I have a natural tendency to nurture and serve others.

    feeling in the world. Service to others is deep in my soul and in my heart. I learned this from my mother and my grandparents who were always willing to give or to help someone. Even if you are flat broke, have no possessions left in the world you still have yourself to give...
