    No. I'm selfish like that

    (Unless it's the kids of course, in which case I do it a lot)

    Yeah used to all the time. Now only when I can be bothered for others but all the time for DH and DD. For example I used to drive or pick up my older sister to places at 3am in the morning during my HSC times.

    I do sometimes with DH. To me, it's easier to be annoyed at him for the way I feel than it is for him to be annoyed at me (which would then make us both annoyed).

    All the time for the kids. Did it for almost 10 years for XH, but not anymore.

    It's not a black and white thing though, depends on the circumstances.

    Sometimes but often it ends up making me happy that they're happy as well (usually DH or DS).

    With DP and my boys, yes i do, but when i know they are happy it makes me happy. I don't like doing it if DP knows i'm sacrificing something though, he gets cranky that i don't do more for myself. The rest of my family i can take or leave....they don't appreciate anything so i no longer bother!

    Yes
    I try not to these days cause people tend to walk all over me if i let them.
    But for certain people I'll still drop everything to cater to their needs-but at least no one really takes advantage of it anymore :P so i guess I'm not really sacrificing my happiness...much, anyway :-)
