locolady Posted November 18, 2011 Share Posted November 18, 2011 I feel like i've increasingly become obsessed with communication. I long for contact with people - friends, family, guys i'm interested in etc all the time! It's like knowing someone COULD contact you through so many means at any time, in any location but chooses not to, drives me crazy. All of a sudden, I feel like i'm worth only the times that someone thinks of me. Does anyone else feel like this? How can I stop judging and valuing myself based on what others (or even how often) others think of me? I know this stems from a break up a few years ago, where I was instantly replaced and have never had answers/any contact. Although I got over it eventually, I think residual feelings of inadequacy have blossomed into this desire to exist in people's minds all the time. Any advice? Virginia Woolfe wrote "how little one knows anyone" in the 1920s and I think the more communication methods we have, the less we seem to understand or know each other. I've felt a bit baffled and alone since my ex left in the way he did, because I didn't know before it was possible to share so much yet mean so little. I guess I should close facebook and check emails only every few days to break the habits and see if that helps? Sure this goes deep though... Link to comment
