  • I am one of those people brought up on stoicism and the idea of self last. It annoys the daylights out of me that in today's society some people talk about themselves and their impulses very freely. The old concept of looking out for others automatically ensured that there was always a bunch of people considering your needs without saying anything. If my family members would only watch out for me and other family members at the same time as considering their own needs, then we would all be a little happier. I do not want them to be neglectful of their own needs (as used to happen in the past) but just considerate. I should not need to tell people that I am tired or sick, they should observe it. I should not need to ask people to pick up a cushion, they should notice for themselves. If I employed a butler I would not need to tell him what to do, so why should I need to tell someone in my own family?

  • Nope. My SO makes sure to make me feel loved all the time.

    The kids...that's a different story. Sometimes it's about them and other times they are so lovey.

  • No. My kids tell me every day they love me. My dh corners me all the time and tells me he loves me.

  • Most definitely. Husband thinks the tv and computer are more important than I am. Even watches TV when we are in bed until midnight. Been married not even two years and the romance is completely gone. We aren't younguns anymore, but this is not what I had expected at all. It's like I am just here to have someone here and to be his caregiver and his doer. Boy! wish I could do it over again.
