Attention Whore by purple-skunk Attention Whore by purple-skunk
My staple. I know you are all probably sick of my color manipulations, but its kind of my backup.

This actually has meaning for me. It didnt at first, but tonight it does. Consider this my secret for postsecret.

Notice me...please. I'm looking at you for a reason. I don't care if you think I'm an attention whore, notice me please. This is a cry for help! NOTICE ME!

I always have been, since I was a child. I have a need to have attention. I was one of those emo kids who cut themselves for attention. This is my cry to all of those who seem to write those people off. Have some pity, even they are being desperate for attention, you couldnt spare five minutes of your time to make them feel somewhat appreciated.

Look, God gave you life as a gift, give some gift of time to someone who needs it. Just talk, give a hug, heck a smile! Don't write these people off, who obviously are hurting.

I was one of these, I don't cut anymore. Jesus saves me from that, I don't need to cut anymore. But I think of those who do, just so someone would notice they need someone to listen. Even if they're being dramatic, wouldnt you want someone to listen to you even if it was stupid? I'm not saying its right, and a lot of people who do cut for attention are just being immature, but what's it to you to just help them? Even if they don't appreciate, someday they might.

I wanted someone to notice me...sometimes, even when I hide it well, and somewhat thinking "don't look at me, I don't know what to say to why I'm crying..." I'm still wishing someone would kneel down and say "you matter to me."

I used to hate emos, but when I came to Christ, I basically realized I had been one, and I sometimes still am. I love them now. I want to hug them all. To make them feel loved. To make them smile, to tell them about Jesus, and why they don't need to hurt themselves.

Hey, if you're feeling down today, and you're thinking this...Jesus loves you, and I do too. He notices you, and He always kneels down to tell you "you matter to Me..."

Wow... this is very deep... I know what it's like. I've seen it and I've helped many that were like that... I don't know why but there's just some impulse in me that says: "They need you, don't let them feel abandoned... you know how it feels." I've taken many things to heart and I hope other people show that they care as well. If they don't, they need something to happen to them to make them feel the way those people do. "I'd give my life only to make everyone happy, fore if they're happy I know that I'd be happy too." That's just a personal quote but, I think it shows my inner nature. Everyone that reads these, take both to heart. You never know when you may be that person that wants attention, am I right?

That impulse is actually the Holy Spirit, I believe, telling us to care. He sees His children suffering, even if only little things, it doesnt matter. That really shows the true nature of God, to care for others. That's one of the reasons we are here, to love God, and love others as He loves them.
