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.

It is a shame you know, people in general forget to be thankful. I do try everyday to think about what I have to be thankful for and it's amazing once you do this how much we all have to be grateful and thankful for..

Thank you for the reminder to be more so to my family.
