...you knew some people that weren't appreciative of them when you thought they should be? What did you think about it? Did you feel angry or sad over it? Did you ever feel like they missed out on getting to truly know that person? Tell me your thoughts, opinions, and experiences. All ideas are welcome =] For myself, my grandmother was someone who was extremely important to me. I have a lot of cousins on that side, and so out of all her grandchildren, I was the closest one to her. It's kind of too personal for me to put everything down, but basically, I felt like she should have been more appreciated by everyone. I felt like a lot of my family members took her for granted and they didn't care enough about her. I mean, they had their chance to get to truly know her but they didn't take it. All of this really hit me when she passed away. I thought about it from time to time when she was living, but it hurt the most when she was gone. I felt both angry and sad. Angry, because nobody (including myself) appreciated her more. Sad, because they all missed out on so many opportunities to get to know someone so good and wonderful. Has anyone ever gone through anything similiar to this?
