6 signs that you are an attention seeker

If you’re someone who seeks attention and thinks that no harm can ever come off it. But in reality, being a desperate attention lover can do more damage

Most of us can live without much attention from the world, and we can get along just fine as long as we have a few friends whom we can rely on. But there are certain people who completely need the attention of everyone around them. Your attention-catching ways will leave you feeling insecure, make your friends dislike you, and ultimately, no one will even trust you or even care for you.

1. They always play the victim

Compassion is something they will trade anything for and that’s why you will notice that they always play the victim. Even if they are at mistake or have done something wrong, they will apologize but will grieve about their situation and will try and justify what they did, making you end up with guilt for accusing them of doing what they have done.

2. They keep complaining always

Negative and suspicious all the time, they always complain about everyone. If there is a prize for causing the most amount of drama in the shortest length of time, these people surely deserve that. Because no matter how organized a set up is, they will play the cynic and will always find flaws and complaint about it. 

3. They are on social media always

They are the ones who are super active on Twitter, Instagram, etc. They will keep posting pictures with impressive captions with a simple aim that is to get the maximum number of likes and get a virtual reaffirmation for their fascinating lifestyle and so-called intelligent persona. The hyper activeness on social media is a frantic attempt to gain attention from people, more than half of which you don’t even know personally.

4. They always look for flattery

Attention seekers are constantly looking for approval about their qualities. They know they are good looking, intelligent and able but that is not sufficient for them. They not only want people around them to know about their aptitude, but they also want to hear compliments and admirations. 

5. They often get mood swings

You could be in a heated argument with your parents and friends, but if a new friend calls you over the phone, you can change your approach almost instantly and become really nice while talking to them.

6. They are not concerned about other’s life

They quite happily dominate the conversation and gain the sympathy or advice of the person they are talking to, but rarely reciprocate. They are extremely self-centered and they do not even realize it. 

Attention catching is a way of life. Even if you are the one, you may never recognize it and you may assume everyone else is envious of you because you’re getting the attention of the world and you’re so popular. Attention seekers are not good social persons and are full of themselves. So, you should be precisely choosing your friends as you may end up losing a lot of time and energy on a drama King or a Queen. If you think you are around someone who is like the above mentioned, it is time you take some sensible decisions.

What you don’t know about Independence Day

India will celebrate its 73rd Independence Day on 15th August 2020
Gousiya Teentalkindia Content Writer

We all celebrate 15th August as Independence Day each year. Almost every Indian grows up hearing and even studying various struggles and sacrifices that our national leaders had while fighting for the freedom on India. Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, these names are known by every countryman. However, there are a few facts that are still unknown to the masses. We’ve compiled them for you to understand our history and legacy even better.

  • India unofficially got its independence on July 18, 1947, but 15th August was officially decided as India’s Independence Day by Mountbatten. He chose this day because this day was also recognized as the second anniversary of Japan’s surrender to the Allied Forces in World War II.
  • Though, the Partition Plan was announced on June 3, 1947, but implemented on 14th August 1947 and on the same day Pakistan was established. Next day, on August 15th, 1947, the foundation of the Independent Sovereign Republic of India was laid. The partition had cost more than a million lives, and nearly 3.5 million Hindus and Sikhs migrated from Pakistan to India and about 5 million Muslims from India to Pakistan.
  • The National flag of India was first unfurled on August 7, 1906, at the Parsee Bagan Square in Calcutta, and it had horizontal stripes of red, yellow and green. The red stripe at the top consisted of 8 white lotuses imprinted on the flag in a line. On the yellow strip, Vande Mataram was written in Hindi. There was a white sun on the left and a white crescent and star on the right imprinted on the green strip.
  • Our country got its name ‘India’ from the River Indus, a place which was home to the country’s first inhabitants.
  • No country had ever been invaded by India in the last thousand centuries of its history.
  • India shares its Independence Day with five more countries on August 15, but with different years. The countries are Bahrain, North Korea, South Korea, Congo, and Liechtenstein.
  • Even after India became independent in 1947, Goa still remained a Portuguese colony. Portugal made amendments in its constitution stating Goa as a Portuguese state. It was made a part of India in 1961 after Indian troops annexed the state to India.
  • The Khadi Development and Village Industries Commission is the only licensed company engaged in the production and supply of Indian flag. The Karnataka Khadi Gramodyog Samyukta Sangha located in Dharwad is the only manufacturer of the flag made with cotton.
  • Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, India’s first Prime Minister, featured on the famous Vogue magazine because of his unique dressing sense. His jacket became a popular fashion trend in the West and came to be known as the ‘Nehru jacket’.
  • Cyril John Radcliffe was given the task of drawing the borders of Independent India. Despite the fact that he had never come to India, he was given this task of the division of the country.
  • Hindi was declared as the official language of India on 14th September 1949. It is not the national language of the country. Article 343 of the Indian Constitution mentions Hindi in Devnagari script as the official language of India.
  • The price of 10 grams of gold was Rs 88.62 at the time of independence.
