It’s horrible being reminded of someone who doesn’t care about you by the smallest things in life. It gives you a desperate sinking feeling, like you’re drowning and holding one hand above the water and the person you want to rescue you by just acknowledging you and paying you some respect doesn’t. So you’re screaming a silent scream and your words are drowning with you. And all this time that person is doing his own thing.
How can their attention matter so much to you when you never had it in the first place?
