I give and give, and it never seems to be good enough. I try my hardest. Have felt like I didn't try at all. So today I made the decision of not caring about anyone who doesn't truly care about me. Call me a b**ch, guess what? I no longer care.
The time just before we fully recover is the trickiest time for us, because it's the time when we still feel the emotional pull, and it's the time when we need gentle but firm parenting from ourselves to bring us back to the reality of the situation.
