There's something wired into a female's brain that brings about the desire to care for others. I think it starts at an early age. You see little girls taking care of their baby dolls's and wanting to clothe and care for the family pet. Children play house and girls will happily take on the role of mommy and take care of the family. The boys are usually outside playing cars or pretending to shoot each other. (I know I'm generalizing here and you're child may not follow the stereotype.)
I think as we become adults and then wives and mothers, we have to be careful not to lose ourselves. Now I do feel that if you make the decision to have a family, then hopefuly you knew and realized that the time for being selfish was over. It really is all about them. If you lose yourself in that role of wife and mother, though, it's my opinion that you are not giving your family the best that you can give.
I think I've lost myself.
