If you’ve ever forgotten to water your plants for an extended period of time, then you know what happens when something or someone is neglected. You might not like being the center of attention and don’t seek the limelight, but you definitely need attention in one form or another. Attention is when people think about you. Some of us like to give more, while others like to receive more. In any case, attention makes us feel like we are part of this world.
Each of us needs attention!
You know that feeling when a friend tells you they were thinking about you? Yes, this is a type of attention. So is the kind of attention that makes you feel extremely loved. Like when you get a lot of birthday wishes. Being the center of attention isn’t something you can’t live without, but a sense of belonging is necessary to live as a human being.
Finding your place in the world takes time, but it’s worth knowing that where you are is exactly where you’re meant to be.
For some signs, feeling this sense of belonging is not enough. They want to be the center of attention, as they feel most comfortable in the spotlight. For others, the happiness of getting just the right amount of attention, not too much, is enough to make them feel loved and welcome.
Like respect and friendship, attention is a two-way street. The amount of attention you want from someone should be equal to the amount you give that person. When you’re desperate for attention, you’re belling people that their only goal is to make you feel better about yourself. Doesn’t sound good, does it?
