    I Become Invisible To People

    Sometimes people say hi to me when I am at work or out and about, but still I see the way they look its like I'm not even there I'm invisible. I tried being outgoing but my randomness gets in the way. I have a tendency to speak when its not a good time as-well. Anytime I have...

    I love talking to my friends

    and love having them in my life. But if people blow me off and refuse to tell me why, that is their issue and I won't worry about that crap anymore.

    True

    My life is too short to worry about those people who ignore me. And infact not even worth the worry.

    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.

    don't deserve me. The people I ignore, I don't deserve them. We're all just so insecure that we need to know why people dislike us.

    I agree. I just find it hard to deal with

    because I'm not used to being ignored. Especially when it's someone that I interacted with daily. To watch them volunteeringly walk out of my life hurts. It's going to take some getting used to. I'll be ok eventually though.

    How Often Should You Try To Get Their Attention?

    After the first time, it's common courtesy. After the second time it shows you care. After the third time, it shows you care a little bit too much. After the fourth time, you realize that shaving your name in their pet's fur might not have been a good idea after all...
