Nobody likes to be ignored — it’s the worst. While some of us are, indeed, introverted people who love our alone time and sometimes would rather eat cat food than see another person, this isn’t the same as being ignored. Being alone is not the same as being lonely, and when we feel lonely we all like to have those special people in our lives that make us feel better. Make us feel included.
However, we also inhabit a world that is just chock-full of social media BS bombarding us from all angles with the constant need to update everyone else in our “social circle” with our every single move. DO. NOT. FALL. INTO. THIS. TRAP. It makes you look hella desperate — just MAD thirsty — and nobody wants that. If there’s one thing that’s worse than just being ignored, it’s being pitied. Stay the course, friends. It’ll pass!
