    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 feel that I do so much

    for my friends, all I get is ridiculed. I'm always there for them whenever they need anything. I feel that they only appreciate me when they need something or are very down :/

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Do I Mean Anything To Anyone?

    It's a nagging and yet lonely feeling to have an existence where I question whether I truly mean something to the people in my life. The people I work with laugh it up and get along with me, with the exception for one person that I really don't like. But, do I mean anything to...

    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.
