Everybody Look At Me

Where do I begin....today's post is brought to you in part by.... ATTENTION SEEKERS. I have come across TOO many examples of this in the last few days or mention of it that I just had to speak on it. Me personally, I don't like getting attention. I like to keep a low profile. I don't like getting 1000 compliments. I get my share (and although I'm working on it) I tend to find some way to downplay what is said. Them: "You are beautiful" Me: "I'm aighhttt". Don't get me wrong. My self esteem is fine. I don't think negatively of myself. I just don't think I'm above and beyond the norm. No I'm not ugly (not to me anyway, I'm sure somebody thinks so and hey...everybody is entitled to their own thoughts and opinions). But enough about me...I'm here to discuss those seeking attention. First and foremost you have those who act like they DON'T want attention but yet do things to bring it on themselves. For example, you posting half naked pics all over social networking sites but then you get mad when the type of attention you draw are sex hungry perverts who have not an inkling of respect. Well you put it all out there in your "advertisement" and now you have buyers....so what's the problem?

Then you have the 'damsel in distress' attention seekers. Always hurting something or something is always happening to them so that someone is supposed to cater to their need or want. So that someone will ask what is wrong, what happened, how did it happen. Get the f**k all the way outta here and WOMEN/MAN up....cuz indeed...males seek attention just like females. They just have different methods. They can play needy as hell too. Been there and done that. If I want a child...I'll have one...ya dig!?!?

There are also the ones who just are straight up thirsty. No shame type attention seekers. Just making yourself look desperate. Really!?!? Is it that serious? Please hit up your nears Walmart, Sams Club, BJs, Costco, Kmart...somewhere..they selling Powerade, Gatorade, and Water by the huge case. Why you running behind someone who doesn't want to be caught? Trust the attention you going to get in this situation will be very temporary. If you looking for something solid and with longevity..this is NOT the way to approach it. I saw this quote a few weeks ago..."If you treat a man like a celebrity he'll treat you like a fan. " This couldn't be anymore true. Yet you see it all the time.

I don't know..maybe it's just me and my modest ways...but I can't stand to see people just put themselves out there and looking foolish trying to get an ounce of attention. It's crazy. I put this up there with followers. Be your own person...why you chasing a fad? Someone else's dream or life? DO YOU!!! Nobody can do YOU better than YOU. Nobody can BE you...better than YOU.

I totally agree. Those who seek attention no mater what kind your seeking never ends on a good note. To seek attention you have to waste so much energy to be someone your not. Toya's right just be who you are.
