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?

    "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.

    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!

    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.
