Who do you put first?

Who do you put first? In terms of the majority of your emotional/physical energy and resources?

Is it your pups?

Is it your family?

Is it your friends?

Is it you?

Is it humanity?

I'm sure it depends on one particular moment in your life and I'm sure it's transient...Because for me, I cannot say who I definitively put first...and I can specify for each one of the people/pups/myself listed above why at certain times I'm putting them first and why at other times they are unconsidered...

Can you put someone first overall in your life?

What makes who you put first so important to you? How do you show that this 'first person(s)' in your life that he/she/they belong there--or what do you do to show it? Why do you feel they deserve to be first in your life?

It's my wife first, always and forever.

Then I'd say family

And pets

Everything else is an afterthought,

I don't have a spouse or children. For me it's
Pups
Family
Friends

Friends and family all have someone else to watch out for them. My dogs and I have only each other.

Haven't seen you in a while Emoore...If I recall correctly you had been going through a tough transitional period...? I won't say more but I hope you're well and it's nice to see you here again...

Hey Zeeva. Divorce, job loss, move. . . yeah I'd say it was a rough period. Things are better now though. Thanks.

Yes...Wasn't sure if you wanted to re-disclose that...you're brave.

I missed you. Still remember when you gave me pointers on how to use a prong...

My children are first, I brought them into this world and therefore it is my responsibility (and my greatest pleasure) to raise them to be good, strong men and know what family really means. They will carry on our traditions to their children and so on..... They are the value that I bring to this world.

My family----my bf----my pups all fluctuate based on where I am needed the most at the time.

There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page or closing the book.
