Exactly. Ron would go to the ends of the earth for his family and friends, but doesn't understand or believes he deserves it when his family and friends are willing to do the same for him.

He doesn’t stick up for himself when Lucius Malfoy is offensive, but he constantly sticks up for his family and friends. For example, they have to hold him back from attacking when Malfoy insults his mother, he tries to curse Malfoy when he calls Hemione a Moodblood, and he faces Seamus plus a roomful of skeptical Gryffs to defend Harry. He even shouts at Voldemort!
I know there is. I won't even get started in this thread on Ginny. I was just generalizing and using a quick description Ron would have thought and seen about her to show some of the things he felt he had to live up to. I am sure these things about his siblings added to his lack of self-confidence.

mudbloodproud, when you were describing Ginny, you said she was "the baby, the only girl in generations," but I do think there's a lot more to her than that.
