    Silent

    I often feel like my voice isn't heard. Between my family, my friends, the guy Im seeing.. Sometimes I feel like no one cares about what I have to say. Maybe they aren't ignoring, maybe they just don't care. My friends seem to come and go when they seem to care. And the guy Im...

    I Am...Needy?

    I feel ignored and isolated sometimes. Sometimes, there is a very good reason for feeling this. Other times, I become used to this emotion, this feeling of betrayal and hopelessness and isolation, when I really am not being ignored. To stop this, I try to write myself a list...

    Communicate... Is That Really So Difficult?!

    For months now I've been planning a baby shower for my youngest niece. I've written about the difficulties this has caused for myself and my family on my other blog pages, so I'm not going to go into it here... but what I am going to write about here is the incredibly...

    Do You Think That Silence Makes A Good Man Convert?

    Everyday I sit in my bed and think about how my life is. And I wonder why no one cares about me. What is so wrong with me, that not one person can just stop and say, "Hey, are you okay?" Does no one see my cries for help? Does no one see this scars on my body? Does anyone notice...

    To Comment Or Not to Comment?

    I have felt ignored most of my life.  I feel that most of what I say is disregarded and then when something happens/goes wrong that I tried to talk about, people look at me like: why didn't you speak up?  Hello!! I did, you just choose to ignore me.  For this...

    Social Interaction

    Being a person with disabilities, I spend a great deal of time in my home. I don't get to go out and socialize much, can't gain access to my friends' homes, can't get into some buildings because they have steps, don't go on shopping trips because I have to limit my excursions to...

    I don't think, I'm a bad person.

    Yes, I make mistakes but I really try to be nice to people, to help them, be there for them but... they don't really appriciate it. They can easily ignore me the next day and act like we're not friends, like we don't even know each other. And when I need a shoulder to cry on...

    I've always been ignored.

    . Anytime I'm with my friends, someone says "you're really pretty" to both of my friends but never says it to me. Anytime I'm at cheer practice I get shoved aside unless they really need me to practice something with them. Sometimes when we need to carpool, the coaches will...

    I Often Feel Ignored

    Sometime there's someone near me and I say something and I get no response that's when I feel ignored.  Or sometimes I'm amidst a group of people they converse with everyone but me  then I feel ignored.

    I Won't Be Ignored

    Somedays I feel like I am invisible.  I think that is why I ended up gaining so much weight. Like if I am big as a house, you can't possibly dismiss me or pretend I am not there. Ironically, the bigger I get, the more I feel that people ignore me.  I guess it...

    I Don't Feel It. I Am Ignored.

    This of course relates to my life offline. For some reason people ignore me. I say something and its like they nod their head and acknowledge for two seconds and then back to ignore me. For some reason I'm also very forgettable. I remember when I use to take out the dog, people...

    I don't blame anyone

    for ignoring me. I wouldn't want to talk to me either. I get mad sometimes, but I shouldn't be pissed at them. I completely understand, I deserve it. I'm okay with being ignored, I know no one wants to talk to me. I'm a screw up, I mess up everything. 😪

    I feel ignored..I used to feel ignored when I was little, when my mum and dad broke up and I was with my mum, she was on so many pills that she didn't even know I was there most of the time, she'd just tell me to run off and play, occasionally she'd be in an obsessive mood and...

    Ignore Me Because Its Fun?

    Who ignores me? everyone. When do they ignore me? all the time and especially when I most want to be heard. Why? jealousy of such a great mind. It took along time, but I have learnt to ignore back the people who ignore me.

    Why am I never heard?

    It has become the given that everyone talks over me especially at work. People who I think care don't hear what I say. I tend to keep my thoughts to myself more and more. I have conversations in my mind as it feels better to do that than attempt to talk to someone and just...

    I've always known that people don't care about me and I've always known that people don't see much in me. Why the heck do I keep trying anyway? I'm just a weak and pathetic person. I'm probably the most expendable person on earth. Maybe I should just die and get it over with...

    I hate being in a group.

    .. I'm inevitably the odd one out. It's always been this way. In school, I was stuck in groups that didn't even want me in projects. I took a cooking class, and I was the one stuck with clean up because no one cared if I got to cook. In PE, I was the last one left for teams...
