Today we are going to talk about attention seekers. you might have one or two attention seekers in your life, right? Well, it’s easier to call out others on their shit, but the truth is you might have engaged in attention-seeking behavior yourself.
What? Oh yes it’s a thing and too often it’s the attention seekers I hear complaining about how annoying other attention seekers are but they don’t realize that they do the same damn thing. Why is this topic so important? Well, what I often say is, when you do things for the sake of attention is kind of like whoring yourself out for validation, regardless of how you do it. In some way shape or form, we all have participated in attention-seeking behavior, but how do we know we’re doing it? Right now I’m going to give you seven signs of attention seeking behavior because doing things for the wrong reasons ain’t cute anymore and worse it continues leaving us feeling like we aren’t good enough.
Anxiety often creeps in
Anxiety often creeps in and you worry about if something you do will be received well by others.
You are more susceptible to feeling lonely, so you do think to draw connection an example of this we see, is oversharing on social media.
Insecurity often creeps in
Insecurity often creeps in, in causing you to compare your worth to others.
You are too attached to praise
You are too attached to praise. Attachment to praise makes criticism crippling.
You always need to prove yourself
You always feel the need to prove yourself. whether it overly explains yourself, one-upping or using the knowledge against people.
You do things for applause
You do things for the applause of it. The likes, the following and the recognition.

You try too hard to be unique.You already are unique, there’s no reason to go overboard trying to make others see it.
There you have it, seven signs you almost definitely are doing things for the applause, attention, and validation of it all. In other words the wrong reasons. You are more than enough and there is no reason why we should be seeking validation for external source in ways and dishonor our souls. There's is no one more the world that is going to make you feel enough, other than you. Does this all make sense?
