    F*cking Listen To Me For Once D:<

    Nobody listens to anything useful or important that I have to say - ever. Like when I'm trying to set someone straight or help someone, they will either halfheartedly listen or not even listen to me at all, they could really care less. So many of my words go to waste on people...

    Can Anyone Hear Me

    Do you ever get the feeling that your not really part of the world that sometimes ppl don't see you or in some cases don't even think you have a say in your own future. It really riles me sometimes that ppl seem to think they know what's best for you when they can't even run...

    They Don't Hear Me

    Don't think I haven't tried, because I have.  They don't hear me.  If they listen, they laugh and say, "Oh, that's not really the way it was.".  I worked for about 18-19 years in my husband's law practice.  I was not an attorney, but a paralegal.  That means I did the...

    I Speak Clearly, But People Don't Seem to Understand

    Obviously, people have their own opinions and will make choices based on those opinions. Yet, it seems to me that we're all too wrapped up in our own lives, our own problems, and our own causes to stop for a minute and listen to one another. What really bothers me is that people...

    always and it is a source of huge frustration and disappointment. then, coping with the disappointment without becoming more frustrated is virtually non existent. the frustration bubbles up and then i know i'm in trouble. i just wonder why ... always asking why.

    It Is a Horrible Feeling

    it is not wrong to wish to be heard now and then. if i say to people that i feel unheard, they will just say that i am seeking attention. but that is not true. wanting to be heard is not the same with wanting popularity. sometimes it gets so silent that all you want is for people...

    Deadly Silence

    Can anyone really imagine what it's like to be unheard, to never really be heard not because of a language barrier or inability to communicate but because of an illusive other that plagues the lives of too many, that invisibility that follows too many, that hing that allows them...

    I Do

    I feel like I'm not taken seriously by a lot of people. For example I'll attempt to give advice on something and it's not even discussed at all! Yet someone else will say the exact same thing as me just worded differently?!?!?! WTF? yeah...gets annoying

    Since I Was Young.

    I don't really feel it, I know it. Since I was young, people just ignore me. I guess that's why my social skills are so bad. I wasn't able to learn how to express my emotions. During the time when I should have learned the basic "how to's" in life, my family just didn't...

    I many times feel as tho when I have something to say, NO ONE is really listening.  I guess its chalked up to them having 'selective hearing'. I used to be the type who just took things in stride. Now... little things get on my nerves so much. I can repeatedly ask for...

    My Man "frederick"

    Frederick is an army action figure that sits on my wardrobe in my room. He is midly unattractive and he has a missing hand and his limbs are awkward but he still wears a carefree smile on his face. He seems very comfortable. I wish I was like Frederick. Comfortable in my own...

    Boring

    People always talk over me or interrupt me when I'm speaking. All the time. Considering that I'm super shy and don't say very much anyway this is quite irritating. I used to get angry about it, but now I just don't care. Clearly what I was saying was boring so it's a good thing...

    Will Happiness Truly Come, Ever?

    I don't understand. Why hasn't happiness came & stayed? What's wrong, is it me? Am I destined to be unhappy my entire life? Nothing ever seems to last or comes at all. It's as if I have "USE ME" or "Mistreat Me" or "I'll never be happy" written across my forehead. I pray so hard...

    Its Annoying

    I hate to be ignored in general, but is upsets me when anyone who hasn't worked with me assumes I know nothing of a project.  This is amplified when a leader doesn't listen to what I am saying and prasies someone who steals my ideas.
