I hear insecurity is an unattractive quality of a person.

I'm finding lately that when I attempt to contact others, I get ignored, or disdain. I'm not sure which is worse. I suppose I need to remind myself nothing is about me. It's not like I'm doing anything wrong other than being present. Hey, you're having a bad day? I'll acknowledge it. Eye-roll, or lash back at me? I gone -- I'm not your puppy to kick. Problem is when I cut contact, I find I'm the one without any friends. And then I kick myself.

I don't know what I'm getting at. Everyone is a capricious and I'm not getting enough positive strokes to assuage my insecurities.

Two psychologists say "hi" to each other as they pass on the sidewalk. They both walk away thinking "what did he mean by that?"

I'm so sorry. :(

If you need to talk about it, I'm here to listen.

Not that it's about me, but reading it I realized I never responded to your last LJ comment. That was not my attempt to ignore or be disdainful, just overtired and forgetful as of late.

I read a thing (maybe the New Yorker?) awhile back about the difference between solitude and loneliness. At times, I think I've held on to the wrong people to avoid the latter. I'm moving toward realizing how comfortable I am in the former. But, introvert here so YMMV.

This happens to me all the time too! :| Especially when time zones happen and people reply to me when it's late and I'm telling myself I'll reply in the morning.

I'm insecure af and people don't seem to hate me. Well, maybe they do. One of the things I'm insecure about is the fear that people hate me.
