Faked injuries

Nathan and I were having a discussion last night about how when we were younger we would take an ace bandage to school and pretend like we had a sprained wrist or ankle for the sake of a little extra attention. I can remember day dreaming about being in an accident and having to be in the hospital all the while wondering who would come to see me. Down deep it was merely a longing to feel appreciated, noticed and cared about.

There are many more people like us out there. There are many more people out there like us who just long to feel loved.

Take time to notice the people around you who may be faking an injury whether in their soul or body for the sake of a little attention. Be the someone who cares.
