Does anyone bother to take the time to ever pay attention or even listen to you?

Back in the day, my mother used to be quite ignorant with me many years ago when she was completely stressed out from work, and entirely busy from time to time. I can somewhat relate to that.

To end things quickly - of course, despite both of us being busy, we seem to be fine now, and we try to find some free time to get to talk to each other through all means of possible communications virtually almost every single day over here, so all is well.

===============================

Ultimately, do you know a person from within your family, your school, and / or your workplace who clearly does not wish to bother to listen to you at all, and would you even care?

Do you find being ignored, very annoying at times - that you wish to catch their attention somehow or resort to even fighting back?

Also, do you sometimes feel as if you are being ignored by somebody you know about, even when you least suspect it?

And finally, do you believe that by not bothering to listen to certain people that you clearly wish to avoid over here - a good thing to necessarily use, nonetheless?

===============================

[Don't attack anyone from around the community here personally though, please.] Thank you for your responses.

Ya my mom is like that. When me and my mom argue, I try to make a statement and then she interupts me and tells me her opinion. I know the point in an arguement is to get an advantage, it's just that it's very rude to interupt.

saki's family matters are weird and complicated .. ==;; and it's not one of those lies that ppl make to attract attention .......
but being the babiiee of the family ... my family members listen to me ... but .... they don't at the same time ....

they listen ... but they dont really ..... listen listen .... they just listen to make me happy ... but they dont take it to heart ......

same with my friends and school ....

it's my personality to act like the youngest .. >.< but that doesnt mean that no one should listen to meee and understand meeee .. >.< it's annoying ....

me: " i think that the world sucks .. "
them: " ... awww .. do you want candy?"

==;;

oh .... we don't have to listen to everyone ...... that's okay .... like .. if you don't like someone's idea or something ... instead of listening to them and complaining .. just dont listen ...

Yeah, a lot of people tend to ignore me. I only have a few friends that I would be willing to let them know what's wrong or get their attention. There are some people I just don't really care anymore though. :\

This doesn't happen to me, but this happens to ppl in my class though. Like today, a student A was misbehaving, then the teacher told student A to go the counselor. Later the teacher told student B to go also. Then student B was arguing with the teach saying he didn't even talk, but the teacher wouldn't listen to student B. This happens all the time in my class.

No... but there are times when my friends tend to ignore me when I'm speaking - it's either when they're laughing out loud or daydreaming during History class.

Um... I really can't say so, because I don't avoid people, people avoid me! mwahahaha joke... Seriosly... well... a person I'm trying to avoid... hmm... if he's got a voice like one hell of a sound system, if he's talking, it would be hard not to hear it, ne?

My mom basically raised my lil brother & I by herself, so she had a lot on her hands. She paid enough attention to both of us though, so I'm in no position to complain whatsoever. We used to tell her so much useless crap, I would stop listening every once in a while too XD So yeah, people usually listen to me. Not sure why, cause half of the stuff that comes out of my mouth is random :sweat:

my parents and grandparents always listen to me. Sometimes people in my class don't listen to what I have to say. I know my art teacher feels that way. Sometimes she says something, and the students don't listen to her, and she says, " I feel like I'm talkng to myself." But usually people listen to what I say.

I used to be ignored by most of the people I interacted with IRL and it used to bother me quite a bit. Nowadays, I really just don't care.

To know what is right and choose to ignore it is the act of a coward.

Growing up, I was ignored a lot. My parents were always working. My sister was so busy with her friends and my brother was to young to talk to. I hated it. It is not a great feeling. Today, we all have a great relationship with each other.

well people only listen when they're hearing good points XD
People tend to ignore just because they don't agree about it .
so can't really blame them for not listening >.<

Only my little sister, but she has great reasons for not wanting to listen to me. I can be very annoying to her by my own admission. However I do care that she occassionally ignores me because she's my favourite sister.

fight back?


Depends. If I'm in the mood to annoy the heck out of my sister I'll fight back by bothering her until she gets all shouty on me.

Sometimes. My friends might be off in another world when I occassionally chat to them, which can be annoying since they'll ask me something that I just gave them the answer to.

people that you wish to avoid - a good thing nonetheless, here?
===============================


Another depends. I think of it as a hopefully subtle and gentle way to let someone know that I don't want to associate with them, but it can still be hurtful doing it this way. If I have enough courage to, I might simply tell them that I need to be somewhere else and walk away.

Sometimes being ignored can be a wonderful bliss, especially at work. Being left alone to do your work means less distractions and not having to explain yourself to others or held accountable for every facet of your work. Well, just my humble thoughts on it anyway.

I have been ignored before but only when i constantly nag people haahha j/k but seriously if i am doing something to be ignored i must have been doing something to deserve it, i call it like i see it. If i am bothering a person just say it y ignore a person when u can just tell the person they bother u and stop doing whatever they are doing so they can stop. If a family member is doing something to another member of my family they just say (tactful) hey can u quit it it's annoying or something along those lines best to be honest than ignore a person.

I don't think i am being ignored and if i am what can i say but whatever floats your boat i guess ahaahha.

^I use this. It's bad, you should deal with things and people who bother you head on but, if its just them ignoring me ... Who needs them.

Most people are paying attention to me when I talk, usually I get pretty loud when I'm in my close-knit of friends, but I also don't talk much. I talk when I have to say something important. The only times I find me being ignored is when I'm trying to interrupt a conversation between two of my other friends.

Friends-wise, yea they listen pretty well. But they say when I get "philosophical" they tune me out (it happens so many times) But I think it's because they never really get what I'm trying to say, because I speak so metaphorically. Sometimes, I really can't help doing that because I'm a writer and when I speak, I speak as if I'm writing a story or a poem but that's off the subject.

My mom, never listens to me. Sometimes, she'll listen but when she gets really pissed, she doesn't pay attention at all and worst, she blames everything on me and I hate it so much. Like, I try to give her encouraging words, and she just drowns me out, almost like shutting the door in my face, which is something I've gotten used too...

I think my co-workers are about the only people who listen to my ideas, why? Because they actually care to hear everyone!! They're about the only ones (outside of my friends) who really know that I can have good ideas!! Yea sometimes, they annoy me but, it's really good that they listen to me and what I have to say, as oppose to just shutting me out.

I actually, really don't care if anyone listens or not, because I tell people things for their benefit, not for my damn health. If they don't listen, it's on them when something goes wrong. I try to be the best person and listen to everyone else but I don't get the same gratitude...it's ok though, because I won't be like my mom, or my friends (at sometimes ^^). I'll always help and listen to others.
