    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...

    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.

    It's Not Cool.

    Can't people just act NORMAL and know that they are valued instead of being insecure and needy? Everyone is always trying to please other people. Some people have such low self esteem that they pull these stunts for attention.. I HATE THAT. Your life is going to be...

    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...

    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...

    Some people around me would like nothing more

    than every one around them taking the responsabilities to save them from themselves, while being unnerved to be asked the same by those they love. I am not a god, but a simple human with limits.

    I don't see the point in having to be the centre

    or attention why? I get some people may have some issues and crave attention but when people lie about things to get sympathy or to ruin someone else's moment that's too far in my opinion?

    I don't understand why it's a bad thing to like

    getting attention. Yeah sometimes people try to get attention in the wrong ways but still. People don't really choose to like attention just like people don't choose to be shy, it's just your personality. If someone likes being the life of the party, why won't you just let them...

    Major Turn Off

    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.
