There are times when I wonder if anyone notices how much I do for others, and there are other times I know they notice and they appreciate how much I do more or less.
However I have had times when I have thought what if I just quietly vanished for a few days, would they notice, would they miss me.
I think many of us have times when we feel invisible, like we are just part of the furnishings. I know I do and yes there are times when I feel like I am being taken for granted. My girls often seem to expect me to just be there for them and that I shouldn’t be busy doing other things, I should be able to just drop things at a moments notice and do what they want.
Yes I know part of this is my fault because I so often do just that, drop what I am doing to help them out, or change my plans to accommodate them.
That said I do wonder if they realise how much I do for them, or how often I change my plans for them.
The think is though I don’t think I am going to change, I am a giver, meaning I like to do and give to my family and for the most part I do not expect much in return but that doesn’t change the fact that at times I get upset and let down like on my birthday when no one things to get me a cake. I know it is a silly thing but it does bother me and I can’t change that it is what it is.
So do you think you are noticed, does it bother you if you are not.
