Sharing Our Innermost Thoughts

share your deepest feelings and emotions in a safe and supportive environment.







I would like to hear someoneโ€™s views on this. Iโ€™m that person who does a lot in any relationship/friendship and I like doing that, I donโ€™t do it to get something. Iโ€™ve just always been the helper and Iโ€™ve realised over my therapy sessions that Iโ€™d started neglecting my own feelings and taking emotional responsibility of my friends. Iโ€™m now working on building boundaries and keeping myself first (very difficult process).
So, sometimes I feel really dejected and depressed that no one hypes me up as I do them or no one really does stuff for me. I think this also plays into why I canโ€™t take compliments as they are not given to me often. When I feel like this, I just want to stop doing things for people and go into my shell but I know thatโ€™ll not help so I keep convincing myself against it. I know I should tell my friends when Iโ€™m upset/disappointed and Iโ€™ve just done that but that hasnโ€™t helped me as that is just who they are. What do I actually do in this situation?
