I Want to Be Appreciated

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 471 People

    It seems as though, 90% of the people in my

    life take me for granted. I am not appreciated even though I should be because I am very kind to people. I just ******* wish that people appreciated me a lot more. I am sick of being verbally attacked and made to feel like a bad person when all I do is try to help others.

    Am I Wrong?

    Lately I've been losing control of myself and everyone I know. I guess the more I think about my life the more I realize how much people use me! Even the ones that I would consider my most treasured friends. I have been there for so many people from giving people a place to stay...

    Doesn'T Matter

    I feel that it doesn't matter what I do I just can't reach anything I want. While I was studying I always tried my best, learn a lot but at the exam I always get worse grade than I thought I deserved. Sometimes it was bad luck, for example if the exam built around themes and we...

    I've been married for 35 years.

    My wife is still my one and only first love. But the thing is, she lives in her own little world. She is not interested in anything I do or like to do. I like to sing, to build things, to go outside and do things (what I can do when I'm able). But she's never interested...

    I Really Want To Be Appreciated

    I don't have a job anymore, I'm failing school, and I know I have problems I need to work through, but I've got so much to offer from within, from my soul; that's what I want someone to appreciate. A person isn't defined by the jobs, schools, honors, and successes they can put...
