I am not a huge fan of self-reflection. I think about myself all the time, but when it comes to reflecting on my life and feelings, I find it really difficult. It’s been difficult for me to write this blog post because I want to share what I’m feeling, but also don’t feel like sharing anything personal with you. This is something that bothers me because in the world we live in today there is so much attention given towards oneself and nobody seems interested in anyone else anymore.
It’s really hard for me to find people that I can connect with. It feels like nobody wants to hear my thoughts or be around when they are not about myself and what I’m going through, and it hurts. But the thing is, I am always thinking about myself, so why should someone else want to spend time with a person who doesn’t care? Reflecting on my life has made me realize how selfish I’ve been because all of this is just about ME!
I feel uncomfortable when we’re not talking about emotions related to ME. There needs to be more balance in the world today – more attention given towards others than oneself. The realization that you don’t need everything your heart desires but rather need things that make you happy is what we all NEED to be reminded of.
The thing about me, and the only reason I’m writing this blog post right now, is because I need an outlet for my thoughts so that maybe someone can relate to them. It’s been difficult not having anyone close enough to talk with when you’re in a bad place and it sucks feeling alone all the time. So if there are any other people out there who feel like they don’t have anybody at all – know that you ARE loved. You just might not see it yet…
I am really struggling today thinking about how selfish I’ve been over these last few years and I’ve made myself realize how important balance truly is but its hard to find people near me I can vent with I’ve been lost in my own thoughts because I’m never happy without the attention of others***
In the course of my life, I have come across many people who are not attentive to me. This is difficult for someone like me because it means that they don’t care about what’s going on in my life. When this happens, there will be no one here to listen when I need a shoulder to cry on or somebody with whom I can share all of these new feelings and emotions that are pressing down on me from all angles. That leaves just one person: myself. And frankly, being self-centered isn’t really becoming of anyone but especially not someone as thoughtful and giving as me! It makes sense then why so often we find ourselves feeling very uncomfortable if nobody seems interested in us at all times; after all, we’re the ones who have to put up with us!
What do you think about when somebody is not attentive? How does that make you feel? Share your feelings in the comments below.
I am feeling uncomfortable because nobody seems interested in me all of the time, and I don’t know what they are thinking or doing. It feels very different than if someone was always there for me and telling me how much they care about me. When no one around is paying attention to my needs it makes things difficult as I need a shoulder to cry on and sometimes people to share everything with. Sometimes it’s easier just sitting here alone because at least then I won’t be ignored by those closest to me like this person who claimed he loved me more than anything.
I have a problem with my attention span. I find that when we are not talking about me, it is very hard for me to stay focused on what someone else is saying. It feels as if I can’t pay full attention at all times and am constantly looking around the room or checking the time on my phone instead of listening intently. This really bothers me because sometimes people will say something important but I never hear them because, again, they didn’t focus their entire conversation topic on topics related solely to me!
