    Or At Least I'm Aspiring Not To Care.

    I've had quite a few so-called friends start to ignore me. I'll change all their names here. I had a friend who seemed to like me: Zoe. She sent me really heartfelt messages on my birthday saying how much she valued our friendship and we would meet up at weekends and go to...

    Annoying

    I HATE being ignored. Bottom line. It's one of my major pet peeves. If I want to be ignored..I will go out to a ******* bar by myself. I don't need people who are supposed to care about me ignoring me. Ignoring my e-mails, my texts, my phone calls or whatever. Or just...

    Couldn't Care Less

    Not everyone is going to like me. That's just the way it is, and I don't take it personally. I've got too many things going on to worry about what other people think of me. If they like me...great. If they don't...next.

    You Can Be A Bit Selfish

    Focus mainly on yourself and those who care about you. Enjoy life instead of caring for those who don't care about you.

    Living My Life To The Fullest

    When I was young, I loved my neighbourhood.  People would say good morning and look out for each other.  Where I currently live, people are so cold, selfish, petty and vindictive. One thing that I have noticed about my neighbours, if they dont like you, they will simply ignore...

    Unfortunately...

    ...the problem is, as I've discovered, that the more and more people ignore you, the LONGER your life seems to drag on.

    Thankfully this didn't go on for very long. Several years ago I reported to someone at work who didn't have much to do with me at all. I felt ignored. On one occasion he sent one of my coworkers to 'supervise' me on this one responsibility I had. It was something that I had...
