As much as I love my family and friends, sometimes they take advantage of my nurturing nature. I don’t think that they could last one day without my care and support. Well that day is about to come. Don’t get me wrong I am not a push over in fact that is the opposite of me. I am a nurturing person not just toward my family but to my friends as well. This can make me a sucker.

The teacher began spending notes to my mother that I was not completing my school work on time. My nurturing side continued to be a problem with my work being completed on time, until the teacher physically separated me from my peers, forcing me to ...view middle of the document...

My husband looks to me to care for his basic needs, food, a clean home, clean clothes, companionship and love. Often family and friends drop by unannounced to visit, this leads to telling me their sorrows and problems
An example of the conflict that this trait has caused for me is that I have looked forward to a reunion with my children who I miss and love very much. Due to the forces beyond our control we have only limited contact. I make sure that everyone in my family knows of my plans and when this visit will take place, months in advance so that they will not be surprised by the fact that I will not be around to care for his every need. I make special purchases to make this jamboree memorable for all of us. My family knows how important this event is to me.
Normally I would be eager for my nephews visit and make myself available to babysit but not on this day. My husband who knows of my plans and has been reminded may times that he will be on his own for the evening has invited friends over for dinner, expecting me to drop everything and plan and prepare an elaborate meal and snacks for everyone. He also expect me to clean the house plan the menu, grocery shop and be the eager hostess with short warning of his friend’s arrival on a day when he knows that I have other plans.
. I want to be there for all my loved ones. Often I stay home or don’t get things completed as I would like, such as homework, because someone needs me. Someone needs a babysitter, a smile, someone to listen to their problems, something to eat or just someone to watch TV with. I love doing all of these things for the people that I care about. However on this special day I find it very difficult to turn away my nearest and dearest. As hard as they try I have to try and not give in to their demands of me so that I can go to my planned event. This will be a challenge for me since it seems that is all I do.
