"It’s not like I’m anyone important…"

January 30th, 2010


Sigh. Why do people whine about not getting attention, and then talk about how insignificant they are to society? I am so sick of hearing it. They act as if everyone’s lives are supposed to revolve around them, their opinions, what they have to say and what they think is important…. Then comes the whining that no one cares…. Then the talk about how they are no one important.

FIRST….The world does NOT revolve around you. (It revolves around me.) Haha, okay but really. Think about how many people are in this world. There are a lot. Really, it makes any single person look extremely insignificant. Your opinion is important, and you should share it, but it’s not the end of the world when you don’t get a ton of attention for it.

SECOND….STOP WHINING. Whining about how no one cares about you…? By doing this, you’re going to get attention from people who only want your attention… Or annoy everyone around you.

THIRD….If you really think you are worth nothing, you need to read my “Confidence” blog post….because again, you are annoying everyone around you. Not to sound cliche or anything, but everyone is worth a ton, and everyone matters.

BUT….there are millions of people in the world….it can’t revolve around one person.

The good news is…everyone has one or two people who care about them beyond measure… Let’s start with your mother. She has the highest opinion of you —and if she doesn’t, I am truly sorry, and am willing to adopt you. Then, there is your significant other, or the person who wants to be…. I am not talking about the creepy stalker guy that follows you around campus. If you don’t have a significant other, it’s likely there is a friend who just hasn’t told you how they feel. THEN….there is your best friend. I have talked about this before…your best friend cares enough to tell you the truth and what they really think. If you are as lucky as I am, you better thank God you have the best friend He sent into your life.

Anyway, I need to get to work. I am just sick of people thinking they are the most important people in the world, then whine when they don’t get the attention they want, and then turn to saying they don’t matter.

You matter. I am here, if anyone ever needs to talk… I’m good at listening. Ask my best friends…
