Recently I was talking to some friends of mine I went to high school with and we were talking about popularity how some people thrived on it both in school and out of school. Like they had to be the center of attention. I myself was never popular in school and the subject of a lot of bullying.
I have seen people use popularity online at forums too. Now, this is not a call out for those who are popular but to ask why do people need it? I feel like I can't understand why people want to be the center of attention.
This has been on my mind because I've seen people cling to popularity no matter whether it is school or on the internet. So, I wonder why people need it; is it cause they don't get love at home or anywhere else? Or what?
Maybe I don't understand it cause I'm autistic or something. I dunnknow.
