Doing a good deed for your mate could backfire on you unexpectedly; ask before performing any favours. It may be that your partner just needs some time alone. If that's the case, arrange do something pleasant on your own. There's no point in moping. Anyway, you could stand some moments of reflection.
Slaving away while others have a good time is starting to wear thin, but think twice before you blow up. The fact is, you've brought this situation on yourself. Playing the martyr is a manipulative way of getting respect. Change your tactics. When folks see that you're shooting straight from the hip, they'll admire you much more.
Pressuring someone is the fastest way to drive them away; you'd be wise to take a more laid-back approach. The fact is, you have many strong points that are being overshadowed by your bossy behaviour. If a romance was meant to be, it will take root. In the meantime, give the object of your affection some space.
Sacrificing a job for the sake of your loved ones could be a big mistake; don't make any hasty decisions. Everyone may benefit from your new-found independence. Besides, you could use a little extra cash. Your family may object to your decision at first, but will soon see the value of your work. Stand firm.
Don't feel bad if you seem to know less about a subject than everyone else; you can't be an authority on everything! By putting yourself in the capable hands of an expert, you will soon learn the essentials. There's no harm in furthering your education at this point, especially if it means making some new friends.
A luxury item you simply have to have will seem like a thoughtless purchase by tomorrow. Keep your credit cards firmly anchored in your wallet. Buying things won't fill up that empty space inside you. Try to find new uses for cast-off items in your home. A creative mind like yours can turn a sow's ear into a silk purse.
Tailoring your answers to suit a picky person's needs is an exercise in futility. The fact is, this character won't be satisfied by anything you do or say. The best course of action is to keep a low profile. If you're asked for an opinion, give a diplomatic response that can be interpreted either way. Luckily, this shouldn't be difficult for you!
Longing for the "good old days" may be preventing you from enjoying the blessings that currently grace your life. Memories are rarely accurate, anyway. People have a tendency to over dramatise events as a means of making sense of life. You'll put a whole new spin on things by taking advantage of the opportunities in front of you.
You may feel tempted to put work aside in favour of social pursuits, but remember you can have too much of a good thing. You'll feel less burdened by your work once you get down to business. The people who are trying to lure you away from chores don't have your best interests at heart, anyway. Think for yourself.
Resist the urge to try to buy a child's affections; what they really want is to spend time with you. Devote the entire day to their pleasure, but don't go out of your way to spoil them. Play some games, rent a movie, or work on a craft project together. You'll feel awkward at first, but fun will take over.
You may be giving a mentor too much authority over your life; stop looking to this person for validation. You're the only one who knows what's best for you.

Catering to your sensual side could have a serious affect on your bank account. Make a game of being frugal, and put your savings toward a nice vacation this summer.
