I Often Feel Ignored

    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...

    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 feel like I'm the kind of person

    that everyone thinks is always happy and always there to make other people happy but it's so hard sometimes because no one expects me to be down or fail anything and when I do people act angry with 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...

    Nobody Knows Me

    I feel like the people who know me really don't know me. Either they don't care or they don't want to hear what I have to say. I have pretty well given up on the idea of having friends that really understand me. I have connected a bit with some people but this is online...

    But Why Do I Care?

    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'm always second best with everything.

    All I want to do is be able to show someone how much love I have. I'm not one to complain so I will keep quiet. What's new.

    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...

    and see my friends with their other friends while I sit at a table or stand by a wall alone.Then I become desolated just knowing that I'm only existent when people need me to be. How the only way I can get people's attention is by acting like a moron and making an *** of myself...

    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 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.

    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. 😪
