When will altruistic people realize that their altruism makes people see them as weak, foolish, &


causes them to always end up last? What makes altruists even being disdained by their own family members? Will altruists learn to say no & mean it?

    Yes,, there are altruistic people who ALWAYS put others FIRST. They have no concept of self. They GIVE, GIVE, GIVE & always pulling THEIR weight while others......DON'T!

    "The minute I change who I am because of what other people think of me is the minute I truly do become weak and foolish. " < So agree!

    YES, but there are altruistic people who refuse/can't say no. That is what perturbs me. Others sense that & go for the proverbial jugular. At least selfish people can say NO, let others fend for themselves or.....DO WITHOUT.

    You have made EXCELLENT points which I agree with. BTW, 4 children aren't a large family at all. I was thinking of how kind people have to always rescue those who NEVER pull their weight e.g. adult siblings & other extended relatives.
