I Am Not Seeking Attention

    I am often concerned people on here think

    that I seek attention, a friend of mine on here told me something similar few years back, was quite annoying. Well, I don't. I may be posting troubled stories for most of the time, but that's because EP is my outlet, and if you notice, I am often talking to myself, I am not...

    I hate how when you post something about cutting

    and people are all like, "Oh, you're probably just doing this for attention" You know. People cut, and people commit suicide every ******* day. While you lounge around and dis people and bring them down. You make them feel insecure when you say those things. They get upset...

    I honesty don't understand

    why some people comment on my stuff saying I'm seeking attention. I'm not looking for attention I just want to know why I feel like this, what can take the pain away, rather then killing myself. You think I like feeling this way, and want this horrible feeling continue? I'm just...

    Yup. I hate it when all of the attention goes

    to me. And it's more annoying if people assume i'm an attention seeker when i'm really not trying to get attention...rarely happens though, but it's still annoying. -.-

    I Wouldn't Like All That Attention..

    I'm barely noticed both on EP and in the real world. At least, I think I'm not. But you know what? I like it that way. So much attention makes me very uncomfortable.. The only attention I want is from the man I love. I don't need or want anyone else's.

    Looks Can Be Deceiving

    How does one tell stories , pass comments , make gestures , encourage others , comply , offer advice , share , but be inherently shy inside , yet outwardly confident , positive , out going and helpful, loyal  and a good listener .

    Generally, No, and I Won't Eat My Words, Either

    I do not have much desire to be the centre of attention, with the spotlights blazing down on all my blemishes and causing me to sweat.  If there is a good reason why I should be the centre of attention for a while, okay.  I can probably handle it.  But I do not...

    I'm not posting all these posts

    for attention, I'm trying to help those in need, I know what it's like to have no one, what it's like to not want to be alive, what it's like to feel worthless. I'm not posting these "talk to me if you ever feel alone" because I want people to talk to me. I'm posting them for...

    I'd like to defend myself without feeding the

    trolls. How am I an attention seeker? First off. I haven't posted questions for almost 1.5weeks. My Q&As are actually Questions. Check my profile. I don't seek attention. I mean I use to but that was over the summer and I was suspended constantly for it. I'm hardly in the Q&A...
