Being an 'attention whore'

Being an 'attention whore'


So as a girl who posts a lot of selfies I freqently get called an attention seeker or somehing along those lines.


One of the main reasons I get called an attention whore is that people say I know I look good. But hear me out, what if I don't? Just because you find someone to be good looking or attractive doesn't mean they think they are or they haven't been told otherwise. So you go and bring some negativity to their posts.


I recently posted a selfie of my body. For me that took hours of working up the courage to do because I've always had issues with my body. Then, after seeing some of the first things posted and some of the messages in my inbox, I logged off for a few days to get the nerves to check the rest because I really dont need anymore negative thoughts about my body.


Don't get me wrong there was positivity too. I always go on what my mother told me when commenting on people's appearance; if you haven't got anyhing nice to say dont say anything at all.


On people's posts who are 'unattractive' no one calls them an attention seeker. So why do we have to assume that everyone that you deem attractive has a great self image, and therefore you can bring the hate?


What's so wrong with wanting a little attention anyway, dont we all?


Is being an attention whore really the worst thing going on in the world?
