i never thought i can be... but since i became a mother and have my family of my own, i became SELFLESS. I never knew it will be possible but then it is. i appreciate my mother more since i experience the magic of being a mom. it is not an easy task and it is not a trial and error thing. i call it magical because you don't know how to be a mother but it became natural and the rest is history so to speak. sometime sit is easy for us to judge a woman with a crying son she can not handle but mind you, it is not an easy situation for us moms. you will only understand how it is hard to balance your feelings once you have experience it. the words me, i and self will be of no meaning to you. it will always they, them and my family.

hi there, i am being selfless when it comes to my nephews and nieces especially the eldest nephew i have. not that i have favoritism but because i was with him from the time he was born up to just a few weeks ago. my sister moved out and now has a job and it is very far from here. it broke my heart but i had to accept it. i treat him like my own child and i love him so much. i just can't wait to find a job too so i can earn and save for a plane ticket to be able to visit him. i am also selfless when it comes to my boyfriend. i know some people would say that it is too much, but i am the only one who can understand myself. he deserves it because he treats me right and make me feel very special and the luckiest girlfriend in the world. i think that is enough explanation as to why he deserves it. and actually right now, March 14th, we are celebrating our 7 years and 8th months

thank you very much. i hope so too, we are planning to get married in the next 1 to 2 years. and i know how hard it is being a mother. my sister is a single mom. sometimes her boyfriend communicates with them, sometimes not. and it breaks my heart every time my nephew asks about his dad and that he is sad because he misses his dad. and yes i hope i can be a good parent too someday, i know it is not easy but i will try. Happy molotting shylade

I'm a man with 2 grown adult children and 3 granddaughters...... And I have to say the toughest job in the world is raising children. You can write a 1000 books about parenting and not one can every really prepare you for raising children. Its so tough at any age.. When they're toddlers, the depend on you to meet all of there needs. that goes on when they're teenagers. But if you think it stops there, you're wrong. My kids are 29 and 24 years old and the still need mommy and daddy.

I'm with you all the way. sure have seen this selflessness in my mom too. late in getting to bed and the early one to rise. Had to work real hard together with my father to see our needs through. always thinking of us, her kids first before herself.

Nice to know you are a selfless mother! My mom was! Her biggest priority was to keep my dad happy who was and is a jerk! So I and my siblings were her second priority! So i grew up feeling somewhat neglected! Not very loved either! I know more selfish moms then mine but it is nice to know there are selfless moms out there!

thanks. it is hard to be a wife and a mother at the same time especially if you are torn between them. it should not be actually like that and for me, my priority will be my son. he is the one who needs me and i can never replace him in my place like the way he can never replace me. i am just blessed to have such a wonderful husband so i can also be a good mother to my son. i know your mom loves you maybe she is just hesitant to show it.
