Why is it we want to we acknowledged, accepted, appreciated, and liked so badly?
Even by strangers–
What about a human’s self worth is so flawed?
Why do we crave attention? Only to second guess our encounters, our engagements, our texts. Delete–delete–delete
The boss with the board
The writer with his stories
The traveler with her loneliness
The students with their teachers
The elderly with their children
The post with likes
The home cooked meal with a smile, a thank you, a burp
But it’s not enough
It’s never enough
Needy, we are
Needy we’ll be
Don’t post, don’t send, don’t text, don’t join another contest, don’t be vulnerable
Do be constantly LOOKING, looking to please
Invest energy in self
Self Care; Self Love
Isn’t it simple to do?
Hold your breath
Get rid of the hiccups
