I went ice skating for the first time ever today. It was so fun. I’m really really poor at it and spent the whole time trying not to hurt myself but it was still fun. But there was a boy with us who I enjoy the company of who spent the whole time ignoring me. No, I’m not writing about boys. I’m writing about being ignored.
There is a reason that being ignored hurts so much. Someone who’s opinion you value is withholding their attention and love from you. Often you don’t know why this is the case and often it feels undeserved. It makes you question what is wrong with yourself. I don’t know why this stupid boy wouldn’t even make eye contact with me, but it hurts.
I can’t keep my eyes open.
