Searching For Attention

Posted on

Browsing through Instagram yesterday; I came across a picture that got me thinking. How important is it to have meaningful relationships? By, not just dealing with people to seem cool, but having tangible relationships with them. I see so many people posting images, seeking attention for all the wrong reasons. Attention is a helluva drug. We all want it; but at what cost? Do we risk losing our self-worth or degrade ourselves for it? Humans need their ego’s boosted. We thrive off feeling important. You have to differentiate between meaningful attention vs. popularity attention. Ask yourself: what are you really gaining from likes from strangers on your exposed photos? Or, are you seeking likes to help boost your confidence?

Focusing on if you get likes on your photos only weakens your confidence. “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”, which means what you see as beautiful someone else might not understand your vision. Have people in your life that will support you and your dreams by helping you reach them. Not by showing off your body to strangers on Instagram for popularity. But, by pushing you to stay on the right path to reach your goals. If you’re seeking attention, try finding it through people whom are driven and determined to get success. Find friends that are working towards their dreams, so they can influence you to work towards yours. Be a positive influence in life by showing the world your achievements, not by revealing how great you look naked. Trust me ladies, men like women that’s driven with goals. Yes, they like to chase after women that come easy, but keep in mind. Easy come easy go.

    I have to say that I agree and disagree. I’m not sure what people you’re talking about. The more ‘pornographic’ types of pictures, well… I’d have to agree with what you wrote. BUT then there are the fitness types – which I think are perfectly fine. Those pictures are posted to show progress and to motivate others – mostly.
    I think those types of pictures are fine and are not put out for attention and likes from others – but to motivate. I’ve personally been motivated a lot by seeing other people’s fitness progress and bodies – and now I do it myself. 🙂

    For those that put up pictures with their boobs and ass out for the sake of attention (especially from guys) I would say I feel sorry for them. Its sad, because obviously their self-esteem is so low that they need to be confirmed in such way. Is it wrong? Most definitely. I think a major issue these days is self-respect, or rather the lack of it….

    BTW love that first quote! 🙂
