Found on Tumblr (click through to see the source post).
First thought: this is me. This is precisely how I feel.
Second thought: this is how I feel some of the time. And It's not like I want to be in lots of real world (and physical) relationships. But connection is important. Feeling valued is important.
Third thought: Look at all these notes -194,321 in 3 months. Even allowing for doubles (a 'like' and a reblog by the same person) that's a hell of a lot of people feeling the same way.
Fourth thought: It's a relief to know other people feel the same way and that someone has put it out there for us to know we're not alone
Fifth thought: It's not even true for most of these people. I hope they know that it's not true, certainly not true all the time.
Sixth thought: I really ought to take my own advice and recognise that it's not true for me either, certainly not to the extent I often believe it to be.
Seventh thought: Needs to be shared more. Shall put it on LJ. Holy crap, it's a rare day I find something quite so thought proving on Tumblr.
