Don’t ignore me

Friday October 8, 2021

I used to think that being criticisised by a stranger, family member or friend was a terrible thing and it would have me in tears.

I have discovered that there is something that is similar - being ignored.

I am not talking about when a relationship has ended or not begun but when a member of your family or a close friend ignores you.

It can make you feel so insignificant, so alone, and so sad.

If someone is using the silent treatment to ignore you it can be extremely painful.

Being ignored can have a physical effect for example headaches, sleeplessness and fatigue as well high blood pressure.

What do you do when you are ignored, I often just leave the situation but that is not always possible.

So how does being ignored make you feel? 

Are there ever times when you want to be ignored.?

Have you ever spoken to a person as to why you are being ignored.? If so what did they say?
