Like My Family Should Of Wanted Me

Everyone wants to be wanted by someone. I am just like everyone else. I long to be wanted. I have never really had some want me, I mean want me for me . Yes I have had men want me because of my looks, but not for what was on the inside. I was never wanted by my family, so now that I am older I look for someone to want me the way I wish my family would of. My biggest downfall is believeing people when they say that they love me, I am so quick to believe it no matter what they have done to me. I am quick to forgive someone when they say" but I love you and I need you". Those words are the words that I want to hear and know that they are sincere about it.

You are being taken advantage of and people know that you are easy to manipulate. I think it would be helpful if you could start making a list of what you want in a relationship. Make a concrete list of things that would not be tolorated no matter what. You need to learn to respect yourself and bring up you self worth. I would try going to meetings that could help with that. I don't know what is avaiable for you but I have been going to self- esteem classes through a councling center. There is always Al-Anon if you cant find anything else. Read books about healthy relationships, bounderies, co-dependancy, self help books, domestic violence so that you can be educated about what makes relationship work healthy and what to look out for. Don't ever settle for less because YOU are a wonderful loving woman.
