"There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about."
-Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Grey
Do you agree?
Ever hear anyone say,"any publicity is good publicity?" I think that follows the same lines as the quote.
Would you rather be talked about, even if it's negative, versus never be talked about?
I'm not one to go looking to start drama, but I just went through some drama with a friendship that went south, and I know for a fact I was being talked about negatively. Do I care? No. And I'm proud of myself for not giving a fuck because I really think I've come into my own over the past few years. Not as much bothers me as it used to.

I agree. Being ignored means you ain't making a difference. No matter who you're voting/you'd vote for in the US election, both candidates have downsides to them, and some rather big downsides. That said, what makes them get criticized/hated on by one side is frequently what gives them respect from the other side. They're loved for the same reasons they are hated most of the time.
If you're essentially invisible it means you dont have an opinion, you dont have any particular objective that people recognize, you dont have an influence on people's lives, so you're not important in a social sense on any level.0
