  • wtf? are you smoking crack or what? are you trying to say you want to spend money on a gift for yourself ..go ahead, do it. you can choose to add happiness to other people's lives (your family)..but you shouldn't expect anyone else to do the same. you can not control what anyone else does. make yourself happy. let go of things for them..see if they miss it, and start to appreciate you more.
    if i'm not getting it, its because your post isn't really making sense, but i tried.

  • For once, I Agree with rkoloms. And I do mean for once.

    And yes, please--divide your statements into individual sentences. This run-on is almost impossible to decipher.

  • So basically you want someone to give you a material gift to show that you're important to them?
    Try getting your family to do their part. You're asking for material items because you do everything, when you should be asking for them to do something. You're not looking to feel important, you're looking for people to spoil you. Buy yourself something if that's what it takes to make you feel special. Honestly though, you need to make your family do their part in the household and stop expecting people to buy you something to make you feel important.

  • Ontop of that, superficial importance is going to last for a day tops. They'll forget about it and you'll go back to feeling the same way you did before. If you want actual respect and to feel valued in your household, then you need to get your family to do their part. Every child should have chores to do, and your SO needs to do his part as a parent and a husband. If you want someone/anyone to feel you matter, demanding it isn't the way to go about it. You're just going to get ignored.
