Attention

There used to be a time where I would keep throwing pity parties, in hopes people would notice me and try to console me in some way. My low self-esteem needed constant stroking in order to survive from one day to the next. It was as though I was waiting for someone to save me from my life.

After awhile I realized there is a distinction between good attention and bad attention, and I was attracting a lot of bad attention for being who I was. It's better to have no attention than bad attention.

Now that I feel like most of the bad attention in my life is gone, I should be working on getting good attention. This starts from increasing my overall well-being by being healthier, more of a gentleman, and more knowledgeable. It's not something that I can accomplish overnight, but I know I have a better foundation now than I did a few years ago.
