I Want to Be Appreciated

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,346 People

    I want a friend. A true friend.

    The type of friend which is family and is my no.1 person while I am theirs. The type of friend I know values me as much as I value them.

    Being a CNA is hard *** hell some times I get

    discouraged because at the end of the day no one gives a dam or appreciates what you do (nurses & DON) and I wonder what the hell I got myself into.

    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 hate that I always feel alone.

    My mom recently passed and she was my mom , my dad, my friend, my everything! I'm an only child and my mom knew me better than anyone. My husband is always on the phone but never talks to me. I'm tired of being lonely

    for 6 years, in fact, today would have been our anniversary...i dont know what year, it dont matter, but anyway, when i was with him, i'd do house work, cooking, all that stuff, just because it needed to be done...it was my "job"....he would still find something to complain...

    I hate when people take my kindness

    for weakness. Just because I don't mind giving a helping hand, doesn't mean I don't need one at times.

    Extra

    I want to costar in the story of someone else's life instead of remaining in the backdrop. I feel like I'm on the sidelines watching everyone else live their lives the way I wish I could.

    I Do a Lot For My Friends and Family, It Would Be Nice to Get Some Thanks Occasionally

    I am a very loyal friend, if you are a true friend of mine, I'll pretty much do anything for you. The same goes for my family, but I never seem to really get a proper thanks, and a lot of the things I do for people, I know they wouldn't bother doing for me if it was the other way...

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

    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 never feel at home in my group of friends.

    There is always a time I feel like I am watching at the side while everyone else is having fun. I wish I just shared the bond that I seem to be missing with people.

    I have always wanted compliments

    and affection more than your average person. I think this stems from growing up in a family with parents who always argued and split up when I was 8. But even so, I do yearn for some attention. I think most men who have done the traditional dad-works-but-non-stays-at-home-and...
