    Change Is Unlikely

    When you live with someone who is totally self-absorbed it's difficult to come within range of their vision as they are always focused on themselves.  I won't go into all the difficulties I have in my marriage ... and believe me ... there are many ... but my husband is someone...

    I like me. I am a special person.

    I deserve to be appreciated. It does not take a lot of energy, just effort.

    Appreciation from others is overrated.

    I strived for years to get any form of recognition from my father, even after we hadn't spoke in almost 5 years, by his choice. I wasted so many years thinking I was doing right, but when I really took a step back and looked at my life, I was living a life I thought other people...

    Don't we all? Perhaps some more

    than others and some less then the average person. It is hard to keep caring when nobody seems to appreciate the things you do for them. Givers are always going to give more than they receive. Some people are embarrassed by generosity and some think that you will want something...
