    How I Often Feel Ignored

    I often feel ignored because I expect more from someone than they are prepared to give back. I'm like a dog in that once I like you you've got a friend for life. But a person may not feel as strongly for me as I do for them. So I often wonder if I might seem too...

    I Do Try to Be Noticed

    I am basically a quiet person so when I'm in a group of people I tend to listen more than talk.  Lately at work I'll accept invitations to group lunches however unless it's with 1 or 2 other people (as well as depending who it is) the conversation seems not to be one I can...

    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 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.

    Totally!

    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...

    It's so weird when it happens.

    And it's not a pleasant feeling either. My grandmother always talks to me, asks about my day, straightens my jacket collar, anything; she's super friendly and talkative but the other day she completely ignored me. Even when I talked to her; she didn't respond. It felt so...

    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...

    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...

    Mime

    It's like being a mime or a mute trapped in a box. Where nobody can hear your screams. But now, it doesn't feel so bad. Because it doesn't matter if other people hear me at first. I know some people hear me, and I hear them...But the most important thing is that we learn.

    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.

    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...

    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...
