Do you put other people's feeling/wants above yours??

I dont mean your children. I mean like friends and family.

  • Thats all I have ever done and they dont put mine above theirs. Believe me, I am realizing that there is no reward in doing that either. Only martyrdom

  • It just depends, b/c sometimes if I don't do what I want or take care of me, no one else will.

  • No I don't. Not even my son's really now that he is grown and no longer lives at home.

    Don't get me wrong. If there's an emergency, extreme situation, special occasions..etc. Yeah I do. However. In day to day living. No I do not. I use to years ago. I always put everyone else's needs/wants/feelings before my own. Over time. I became one very resentful, unhappy woman who felt unappreciated and undeserving of having her own needs/wants/feelings met or respected. Once I really accepted how unhappy living that way made me, I changed. Once I accepted that my needs/wants/feelings were just as important as anyone else's in my life. **I** started respecting my needs/wants/feelings. Once I started respecting them and meeting them, others in my life started following suit. From my husband to extended family. Once I made myself a priority so did they.
