    I Think Many People Do To Some Extent

    When I was younger, I had this issue that I did want people to love me, and was concerned with always getting people's approval. I have changed a lot (partly just due to becoming more mature as life goes on and partly because I worked on this - a very helpful book is 'The Four...

    Its Not Jealousy

    I am just tired of seeing no places being saved for me at lunch and no attention given to me by my friends whereas some get all the attention of the world. I just want someone to pay some attention to me!

    I can't stand it when people don't like me.  It's something I'm learning to deal with.  I crave positive attention, so YES, I want people to love me.  But I also want to love people.

    Would anyone love me?

    Broken, bruised, scarred, depressed, suicidal. I don't think anyone would. I would be lucky if anyone loved me.

    and I want you to know that if you have anything in your life which makes you unhappy, believe that this can change. There is a saying, if you want a good change in your life, then start with yourself which means you can make your life better or worse
