do you feel like you are the giver in the relationship and do like being the giver or do you want to be appreciated and not expected to be that way and receive as much as you give?

I'll be honest sometimes I feel like I am doing a lot and not being appreciated for it. I get in those moods like anyone else. I usually snap out of it though. My husband works very hard, and always takes care of things. I would be wrong to say that I did more of the giving. I think we both give a lot. Sometimes when we are overwhelemd we make feel taken for granted and un-appreicated, then we just realize we are overwhelmed, not by each other but with all we have to do.

well life can be overwhelming at times or for some all the time. We have to not let it take control of our appreciation for each other or it will get the best of you. When you with someone you are never going through it alone.

You have to be both to make it work you cant give all your life and recieve nothing in return without eventually becoming bitter.

i am a giver in my relationships always have been. But i do want to receive as well. But my happiness comes from giving happiness. The way i see it if your partner is happy then it will show in return

Both should work it out. But if you give and do something for your mate. You should expect for nothing. No counts for giving and do what you want to do or to show how much you love your partner. I understand what you feel...sometimes we cannot avoid to feel something that our mate rejected and never appeciates what we do for them. Your mate should have be sensitive of that matter.

I give my heart...I give my soul...I give my time...I always give and forgive...Just once I would like to know what it feels like to just be appreciated...I think it needs to be both people willing to give to make the relationship even happier...
