Attention

I used to like my depression… my misery… my problems.

Sane people would not like these things… but I wasn’t all that sane at the time.

Why did I like them?

Because if I was depressed, you would console & comfort me.

If I was miserable, you would try to cheer me up.

If I had a problem, you would spend time with me helping me try to fix it.

I used all of these negative things to steal people’s attention.

I falsely believed that any attention was good attention.

The goal for today: get positive attention by fixing my problems & helping others do the same!

Have a great day everybody!

  1. Love your positive messages! Keep up the great job you’re doing by having such a great attitude and sharing your encouraging thoughts and feelings 🙂

  2. Like the self-reflection! I’ve been guilty of this from time to time also, just one of the many ways us humans manipulate one another… oddly enough, we rarely even realize it, so you’re already ahead of the curve on this one! 🙂
