It makes me so sad to read what you wrote. There is nothing the devil likes to do more than make us feel alone.
I completely relate to trying to be strong for everyone, getting taken advantage of, and then feeling unappreciated. Can I challenge you in this? Something I have learned is to let people see your weaknesses and allow them to comfort you. Don’t be the strong one for once. Let your needs be known and let your people understand how unappreciated you feel. You don’t have to be alone, even when you feel like you are. I know for a fact that people love you in your life because we’re here answering you. I have also learned that I’ve had to put up boundaries around my life so people won’t take advantage of my time and energy. It’s incredibly difficult to share weakness and to protect your heart. I am by no means good at it. But I related to this post and I thought maybe what I’ve learned would help you.
Please let me know how things are going.
