I try to keep in touch with my loved ones to show them I care, but get nothing reciprocated! Do I just stop our contact?

It’s wonderful that you are making an effort to show your family and friends that you care about them. Your efforts can be put to much greater use if you first show yourself how much you care and appreciate you and then see how easily and quickly your friends and family will reflect this back at you.

Ask yourself:
~ What would I feel if my friends and family reciprocated and appreciated all that I’m doing for them? What can I do to give myself those feelings?
~ In what areas of my life have I made myself feel underappreciated, that no matter how much I did, it was never enough?
~ How have I not been giving myself credit for my efforts?
~ Have you been responding to your own thoughts and feelings and then giving them what they are asking you to?
~ What can I do to show myself that I care about my well-being and efforts, and that I really would like to be and stay in touch with myself?
~ How can I give myself wanted and nurturing attention?
~ Have you recently been more in touch with yourself and more caring and appreciative towards yourself?

Answering these questions will help you get clarity about what is really bothering you. Then, you can actually make the changes that you’re looking to make in the right place, within yourself and, consequently, with your loved ones as well.

I would love to share with you more about this and help you have really wonderful and positive experiences with your friends and family! Contact me so we can get started!

Communication and understanding it key.

First of all, what are you trying to accomplish?

How do you want them to acknowledge you and why do you care so much?

The next time you talk to them express how you feel. They may be completely unaware that they are doing anything wrong. You have to communicate what you would like and what would make you feel good.
