Be selfish?

There are times when I get tired of putting everyone and their needs/wants before my own. No one in this house ever puts me first in everything. I want someone to think of me before they do something, remember important dates, etc.

I'm sorry if this comes off inconsiderate and selfish. There are times when I just want to scream or am just so disappointed because I hope people will put me first...but they never do. One would think that I would learn.

I try not to complain about it too often because well...what good what it do? No one, in this house, really cares so talking about it doesn't do anything.

Meh.

Sorry.

It doesn't make you selfish, it makes you human. Everyone wants to feel special or important. When we run around all day doing for others and yet we are completely forgotten about as a person, it is only natural it upsets us.
Since no one else will, go spoil yourself!

4kids, oldest is (16 or 17?) & youngest is (soon to be 2years old this year right?)

Vent here and at least get it off your chest. That's what we are here for.

I also dont think self preservation is selfish at all. If you need to do something for you, to make you feel good cause no one else is thinking of you... It isnt selfish. It preserves YOU, so that you ARE able to continue to do for others! 

Look at it as the oxygen mask that falls from the ceiling of the airplane. Youve got to put it on you... So you can put it on everyone else who needs you. 

Let me know if you want company one morning for pedicure or something girly and fun! winkWe can preserve ourselves together!

I don't think you should feel guilty and I think everyone is allowed to be selfish sometimes
