I never put too much importance on anyone in my life whoever he or she may be. I am not sure whether I am right or wrong in doing so but it is my nature which I cannot change now. What is about you and what is your judgment about my nature?

I agree with your opinion, as much as possible our own handle, unless circumstances do not allow. I also always try to not rely on others, while I still could, I would do it myself.

I know there is more deeper reason why your doing that. I don't believe that a person like you would be so numb to feel that person is important even to the one you love.Maybe you can't change right now but you will see as you move on with your life you will know the feeling how to be treated importantly and eventually you will understand.

I'm too. I never put too many expectations to others. I always believe in myself and trying to progress in life.

If it's you then I won't hold you against it. That's one of your beliefs and I don't like to change people's belief, they should realize what's wrong with themselves and change what's necessary.

In this regard, I am quite the opposite of the way that you are. There are many people in my life that are quite important to me and they are people that I tend to turn to for all kinds of different things in my life. I think that to an extent I might be too dependent on other people in my life at times, but I also couldn't imagine what my life might be like if I didn't pay any regard in my life to others and they were unimportant to me.

Oh we can't do that. Other person is another person and if we put importance in then we certainly will get disappointed, specially cause the person is not knowing what you want.

I sometimes feel that way too especially if i think that i know everything.but you know what,you cant always count on yourself alone.at some point in our lives,we need others to help us face life and its challenges.when we are troubled,that is the time that we feel that what we dont have is actually important for us.

I used to give lot of importance to other people but Then i just figure out that it does not work this way.These people do not care for you and they dont stay in your life for long as well.I am still generous to people around me and try to help people who are in trouble but at the same time i make sure they dont take advantage of me.I dont get involve into anything though i till help people around me.

Isn't that similar to indifference?

Yes friend your nature is to good because I was bearing the loss because I give more importance to my friend and she takes the benefit of this. She was staying 15 days in my house for study I teach her very well and she got more score and she was topper in the college but one day she called me and say dont call me next time our friendship was only for study purpose and I was crying so much and asking her reason for this but she is not talking with me and end the call. Now other than my husband and my mother no importance on anyone in my life. You are absolutely right because this world is selfish. But in rare case or in exceptional cases some friends are good like hardworkinggirl, you and jahio and all mylotter friends but limited importance for everyone.

I am different to a sense. I do put a great deal of importance towards the people I love and care for. One of which is me. We only live one life and I could not understand life if it were not for loved ones. It is important to put forth effort towards certain people in life. Not doing so in my mind means one is not truly living. I can understand people, including me who have been shunt way too many times that they sort of do not want to set themselves for pain. You must try again, I don not feel, and strictly an opinion that you should be having these feelings. What is the point of life if you do not care for others.

We often have a lot of important people in our lives. the opinions of so many are of great value to us. when we put too much importance on one person in our lives, we can be left with disappointment. that person is not perfect. they can let us down if we put too much faith in what they mean to us.

I think this is not the question of whether you are right or wrong. There's no way you can be right or even wrong. You're just being you. You are a person who doesn't want to get hurt by loving yourself more than you do others. But I just wonder if your parents are more important than yourself?

I think this is sort of sad. Attachments are something that helps us to usnderstand who we are. If you are young and do not hold any important relationships now hopefully you will later on. I think some people are self disciplined and have other directioning than just close ties with people. I find that hard to fathom but everyone is different.
