Attention Seeking Behaviour
Is this an actual health problem?
I've done some research and from what I've found, my indication is yes. But anyways, back to the question at hand.
I have attention seeking behaviour and I'm not sure why. Basically my whole life and everything I do revolves around getting someone to pay attention to me. It's so strange and pointless and I've never realized I had it until recently and it's been bothering me. I don't feel like a person because now that I am aware of it, I notice it much more often. And I swear, every single I do, even if it's taking a walk or writing in a diary, isn't for myself. It's all for someone else.
I really don't understand why my need for attention is so high. I come from a slightly broken childhood (both my parents have been married multiple times, my mother is verbal and physically abusive, I was molested as a child, and I'm constantly told that I am incompetant). But other than that...I don't know. All that bothers me and ****, but I'm not quite sure if it's the reason.
So, anyways the question: How can I stop this behaviour? Has anyone on here been through a similar 'phase' possibly? I'm hoping it's just an adolesant thing that will go away soon. Anyways, also should I go see my consoler (sorry can't spell) at school? I can't afford to go to a real one...gah, I don't know what to do! HELP!
