    I Feel Unappreciated By My Boyfriend

    It irritates me that my boyfriend never really motivate's me, or tells me "you can do it!" All he talks about is himself, and how he's doing really well. Then when I try to do something, he always finds something in it to criticize. Maybe I'm just too needy or sensitive. All I...

    She tells me she loves me.

    All she does is demand. And when her bad days roll around she lashes it at me. I do a lot of work for her. Yet I feel like my efforts go to waste. I need to vent. Someone. Please.

    Family

    Recently, I get the feeling that my family doesn't appreciate me anymore. They rarely thank me when I do things for them... It's just like I'm a ghost sometimes. Do you guys know what I mean? And its getting to the point where I'm planning on moving out.
