Why can't I get some attention?

No one wants me in life. My family has no love, my friends from school can't even be called friends, and everyone here just cares about reputation. No one respects me, but they all respect the fat "muscular" guy or the one that has high reputation. No one cares about me! Some times I think I don't want this life god gave me. I never get any attention, nothing at all! When I talk to someone.. I get ignored a lot. I want to not live anymore. This is ridiculous but I just want to not live this life. why can't I ever get at least some attention.. why can't I do anything right in my life?

I know how you feel... Just don't do what I did.. I turned to cutting, and I don't mean those fake shallow cuts.. I mean the cuts that go a few inches deep, all the way to your meat, past the skin layers and fat, all the way to the meat. I was sent to two mental institutions and then my dad couldn't handle me anymore so he sent me to my drug addict of a mom... After two weeks of living with her i was raped, she sold me for drugs... The guy who done it got me pregnant and my life hasn't been a joy ride since. Fact is: God wouldn't put you through anything he KNEW you couldn't handle. You are loved, there just comes a time when you, and every other teenager before you, asks this question, "Is it all worth it? Do I have to live like this?" Fact of the matter is, you will be just fine. Might take a few days, maybe a few weeks, even a few months. Maybe you need to isolate yourself from the situation and think on your own. Think MORE positive and not negative. Its okay to ask God why, but don't expect an answer right away...

I am sorry, but I honestly feel like you have no right to complain, many people's lives are much worse than yours.

I'm sure people want you in their lives! :) Maybe your just not with the right people..not everyone cares about reputation..even though it might seem like they do..maybe you should join a club or something, those people will be interested in the same things as you and you'll have something to talk about..I was kind of in the same situation and was depressed..but now I'm in an other school and couldn't imagine my life to get any better..just don't give up! everything will be alright ! :)

"... You say "what's the point in living?"
When your world's been torn apart,
Well there ain't no shame in crying,
And that's a pretty good place to start,

'Cause as a million faces go by,
There'll be more than one to touch you,
and make sense of your life,
You can harden yourself up all you like,
But you're still gonna get a little broken sometimes ..."

Sorry your going though this. But I know if you would give your life to Jesus things will look up for you. There are true Christian people out there who really care about you including myself. If you would like to talk I'm here to listen. I'll pray for you. God Bless!

You know what? There is someone who loves you. God loves you so much that He sent His only son to die for you so that you can have a relationship with Him.
Listen. Compared to God, you're about the size of a molecule on the hind leg of a flee. But God still notices you! He pays very close attention to you! He loves you more than anyone on this earth can! You can have a relationship with Him! All you have to do is accept the gift he offered you.

yeah.....the above answer is right.explore your talents and do great things with a small things you have..and don't worry about not getting attention and even if they talk to you there are many who just show themselves better and really they won't be true in their hearts.Instead love others and don't expect them to do the same..be happy and you are special and unique in GOD's sight and use your talents for god's glory...all the best for your life.....may god bless you......Love you.......

This is actually I notice about myself: maybe you're not the kind of person they wanna be with; that is, not lively, not having sense of humor.
There's a 'but' here: MANY people don't know anything about life except laughing and playing and being absurd. If you believe your current status is right, just try to develop self-assuredness and go after your goal in life.
Best of luck!

So here's what you need to do....stop moping around and pull up your socks and get on with your life. Guess what....life isn't fair. It never was and never will be. You think you have problems? I can point out LOTS of people who would happily trade places with you. So suck it up and get your act together. If you want to just sit around and feel sorry for yourself, then you'll have to do it by yourself because nobody wants to be around a sourpuss. Get a different attitude and you'll soon have friends who have that same attitude. It's up to you.

Life is what you make it to be. It's how you perceive things. I find it difficult to believe no one wants you around. It's you. Not others. You're depending on others to stroke your ego. A good quiet person rarely gets much attention that's a good thing. Do good work be positive help others do good work you'll soon find out how much respect you have. It's up to you. You make negative waves you'll gain attention but it won't be positive.

HamEdd. I'm not saying this to be unkind, but rather to put this out as food for thought. Since (apparently) you find this problem all around you, (at home, at school, here), perhaps you should take an honest look at yourself. Is there something about you that elicits this behavior I others, or perhaps it's your perception . Just a thought.

Maybe a new set of friends? Friends who feel ignored like you do.

On your profile you mostly like video games. Maybe that confines you to the house and your room too much. We usually only have friends if we show ourself friendly. Help out around the house without being ask to. Be helpful to anyone you see that needs help. SMILE.
Try to imagine living in Africa in a tent with a huge stomache from starving.
Be thankful for everything you have. Like a house..food..a room.. A computer.. A tv..a family..probably a car...... Even your health ..... If you can walk & talk you have nothing to complain about.
I hope you pull out of these sad feelings soon. LIFE really is good !!

You're negative, whiny and seem to blame everyone but yourself... Why SHOULD anyone pay attention to you?


I do promise you this though... If you end your life, you WILL be quickly & easily ignored, and soon forgotten.

Then I wrote it properly.


You think it would have been better to lie to him, and say that he'd get exactly what he wanted by committing suicide?

If he's that miserable, then he's going to have to make some difficult changes to cope... Its not going to help if I try to Molly-coddle him.

It's fine. I managed to call one of my best friends and he actually listened to me. Let's say he's one of my best best friends? Others I really don't like, but this guy is cool. I don't care if I don't have much friends that care like him. At least I have someone now.

A friend loves at ALL times:
To be a friend , you must be friendly!
Just a smile at someone will be welcomed!
Look around you. Are you attracted to a happy face? Or some one who looks sad all the time!
Watch people's interaction with each other! What attracts you to them!
Look for folks who seem to have your interests!
And always-ALWAYS remember:
Jesus IS your best friend!
He said:"I will never leave you or forsake you!"

stop thinking about yourself and start thinking if others. Get involved in something bigger than yourself. Getting attention should not be your goal in life, accomplishing something should be your goal.

Sometimes other people can be a distraction to more noble pursuits. Many inventors and creative people find alone time precious and try to find more of it. Even God encourages alone time to be still and hear His voice. Instead of just fooling away your alone time being bored try to figure out ways to use it wisely so someday you may bless the world with your gifts :)

For all the Negative things we say to ourselves God has a positive answer.

You may need to find that thing you came to the world to do, then you will find others interested in that same thing and you will find your true family. Don't wait for your family or others to define you, become who you are and what you are. Find why you came to earth, find the thing you love to do and do it, then you will not be lonely any more. Take care
