    If this really bothers you, then confront your friends in a non-threatening way or drop some not-so-subtle hints that you too need some support and appreciation at times. Don't stop being there for them when they need you but let them know that you sometimes need someone to lean on too. You can't be expected to always be the strong one. Relationships are give and take - it's a two way street. Both parties need to be on the same wavelength to have any long term friendship. Remember, sometimes we have to ask for what we need or we don't get it - maybe that's all you have to do. Maybe your friends just honestly don't realize that they are treating you this way and they need a little heads-up on your part.

    If you want, just stop being friends with them. You might want other friends as back up though. Like don't stop being friends if they're you're ONLY friends, but that happens to me alot and I just stop hanging out with them and stuff and it eventually fades.

    Don't let your standards slip just because people don't appreciate you. Just respect yourself and don't be a doormat!
