    Attention Seeking

    I have never been one for the whole attention seeking idiocy. I understand depression...i have been there done that, i didn't talk about it to anyone but my doctor, i am sick of hearing about 'I am so depressed, i have everything but i am still so depressed!' I am sorry but the...

    I guess you could say

    that I dislike my old self. I used to be a huge attention seeker and I became inspired to write out this story in hopes that it could shed some light on the situation so that others could read this and hopefully know why things such as this happen. I started my attention...

    It's Sickening

    Alot of the time they don't care about how you are. Or when they want to kill themselves they get all sorts of attention that gets them out of it. But as soon as it starts fading away they're back at it again. What is the point. You either want to or not. I'm not trying to be...

    And unfortunately this app is overrun by them.

    And pervs. Like this app is 45% crazy/attention-seeking, 45% pervs, and 10% people capable of surviving in the real world.

    This Girl Is Craaazy

    I met this girl in Jr. high school. She was cool and I could tell her almost anything. She became a friend to me and always had my back. We became so close, that whenever I switched schools because I was expelled once...so did she. I never expected her to become...

    Feeling Sorry For Herself!

     Last week my friend had to go to our local psychiatric unit as she says she is depressed, she does an amazing job of hiding it from everyone who knows her including her own family who she lives with (who knew nothing of this until last week). She is one of the most laid...

    Drawing It Away

    Attention seekers irk me.  My main reason is that while they're hollering, demanding the attention of everyone in sight, quiet ones who need something fall by the wayside.A couple weeks ago, I was sitting with a girl who is incredibly quiet.  I mean, Una is barely able to speak...

    Major Turn Off

    I just read on the side of my computer screen: "What is a major turn off in any person you meet?" Well I'd say it would be PRIDE AND EGO. Now attention wh0res have this irritating tendency to only speak about themselves, and their great (if not divine powers) and how special they...

    I hate girls who post a pic of themselves

    and say they're ugly to get attention. I can totally relate to low-self esteem and lack of confidence, but there's a line that is drawn between genuine lack of self-confidence and attention seekers.

    I see this more and more on Youtube.

    People who go onto videos and ask people to like and subscribe to them when they have one video, no avatar or backdrop to tell me who they are and they don't have anything in their playlists. It bothers me even more when these people start video highjacking!! For those that don...

    Totally Self-absorbed...

    I know we all like attention at times but some of the authors of EP stories, confessions, questions, etc. are truly some of the most self-absorbed people I have ever seen. I was reading a few stories of some very popular, sexual EP women to my fiancée. Some of it is very...

    Definitely

    Everyone wants attention every now and then, but there's always those people who have to be in the spotlight 24/7. I have no problem giving everyone attention here and there, but when I can't get a word in or you need the attention it drives me insane.

    Mixed Feelings, Ha.

    The attention seekers.  Sometimes they drive me insane, sometimes I just try to ignore them, in the end, I always want to help them though.  There is a reason why people act the way they do.  Obviously if someone's deseparate for attention, it's because they didn...
