I Hate Being Ignored

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,092 People

    I really, really, really hate being ignored.

    I don't know. It ***** with me. I know it's stupid or whatever, but I just can't seem to shake it off. I guess maybe it makes me feel alone.

    I don't want attention from everyone.

    That gets annoying. I want attention from my boyfriend. He can't ignore me. Either you're paying attention or you aren't with me

    Happens Constantly Though Lol

    I've always been a doormat (not saying I still like it, not saying I want to be this way either) Granted I've been an ******* to my fair share of people. But some of it has came back to bite me in the ***. Putting your effort completely into a friendship or whatever, just for...

    Ignoring

    If I make someone mad or annoyed, I would like to know why and not just be ignored. How can I fix it if I don't know what I did?

    Its like i am invisible .

    . When i am being ignored it is like that person is slowly killing me inside. I absolutely hate it with a passion, that most people would not understand. I have been ignored my entire life, by everyone I know. Nobody ever listens to me, it's like I'm not there. Expect I am there...

    I don't have the heart to ignore someone I care

    about. I don't understand how other people can do this with no remorse. People suck.

    Quiet Abuse

    He didn't say anything to hurt me at times. He didn't say a thing at all   Moved his head to look by me.  Walked out of a room or simply didn't show.  This was a common theme from my day's with him.  It's amazing how this action can make you feel so insignificant.  No words...

    I am a pretty easy going guy

    but this is something that heats me up rather quickly. These days where you get told when someone reads your texts or e-mails and they don't respond...just a level of rudeness that bothers me. Seems silly as the wide world is busier then my personal needs but just can't shake it...

    I was there when your life was falling apart,

    when you cried I was the one who tried to soothe you. I was the one who you ignored for days but was there as soon as you was bored and needed someone. I was the one who despite people telling me you would break my heart still stood by you. I was the one who picked you up when...

    and shiz like that, but honestly, I hate it when people ignore me. Or when I feel like they don't want to talk to me. I just want to be someone everyone wants to be friends with.

    It's funny how you told me you'd never be one

    of those people that cast me aside yet I knew you would in the end. I was right again. And to think that if anyone could make things work out, it'd be us. I guess I spoke too soon huh? Maybe we're just better off without one another.

    I hate being ignored.

    Being looked over. Being passed by. I say this because I learned I was placed in a Junior choir rather than the Senior choir I auditioned for (I'm gonna be a senior this upcoming year). It peeves me that there is some debate as to my placement, as one choir teacher says its the...

    I get really upset if people don't answer

    when I text them or don't respond when I write them something on Facebook. That happens to me very often, way more often than it should. I feel like nowadays young adults and teens show a total lack of responsability and committment when it comes to friendships.

    People who know me well know I hate being ignored. It's not a narcissitic thing by any means. I don't feel that I am God's gift to anyone or that anyone owes it to me to pay attention to me at all times. I don't expect much out of any of my friends....just be there for me, share...

    I think it's rude for people to ignore messages

    or phone calls. Why do they do it? I don't mean the odd message or call. Do some think they are more important than others?

    I seriously hate being ignored.

    It makes me feel like I'm invisible or that I'm nothing and it lowers my self-esteem and increases my anxiety and makes me feel bad on the inside. I also hate being ignored on more serious situations, like if I'm going through serious emotional stress and I need someone to talk...
