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 round. I enjoy helping so much, and I will continue to do so. I just wish people realised the lengths I've gone to to be there for them or listen to their problems etc. I give a lot and don't take much. i even feel selfish typing this. :(

I can also relate 100%. I am currently going through one of those moments with my brother and I have also written off so many family members for the same exact reason. If I could do the same with some of my in laws, that would be perfect for me but I have to hold back on that cos of my husband. He also sees it but does not do anything about it. Yes, I also feel selfish at times feeling that way, but I think its about time we deserve appreciation in some way cos people just take us for granted and I wish that someone could see how much we have done for them to appreciate us more. Im still waiting for that day. I wish you well on that too.

I can relate to you 100% on this. I feel like this all the time. I feel selfish to feel the way I do, but I don't feel appreciated for who I am.
