When we are young it is so easy to gain the attention of everyone around you by simply saying “Look what I can do!” That simple phrase gets us all the praise and adoration we need in that moment. I wonder how well that would work out for us as adults; funny thought though!
As children it’s easy to get what we want, because we actually ask for it. If were hungry we say so, if were tired you know it and if we want attention we demand it while doing cartwheels in the front yard.
There is so many times as adults in relationships that we desperately crave attention but never ask for it, never demand it. Instead we keep it to ourselves, harbour resentments or tell everyone but the person we need attention from about it.
You deserve to feel adoration, love and respect all the time for all the various relationships in your life. We so often don’t get want we want in life because we either don’t think we deserve it or we never ask for it and wonder why it never happened.
|What do you mean|
you can't read my mind?
Rarely in life are things just handed to us; sometimes it’s as easy as asking for it and most of the time if you want something you have to work your butt off and grab life by the horns and take control.
It’s easy to make resolutions and never follow through or complain to your friends instead of talking to your partner and telling them what you need… Or is it? Who is losing out in these situations? Who is the one left feeling the sense of failure, doubt or the feeling that something is missing?
It’s time to be honest with yourself and the people in your life about what you want and need. When you want to spend time with a friend call them and tell them you miss them. If you need some much needed alone time with your spouse, instead of waiting for them to make the move, do it yourself.
It’s ok to tell the world “Look at me!”, because you are great and deserve to be looked at. We have to remember that, for the most part lol, the people in our lives are not psychic and need a little help every once in a while to decipher our code. So go ahead help them out, you won’t regret it!
