Why am I so needy? Watch
Things such as self care, spending time in a quiet space pampering yourself, or doing something you enjoy that you can do alone. Other options can be going for walks, keeping gratitude diaries or generally try new things. Works as a reward system too after doing a lot of work or having a stressful day. Hope this was a better explanation 😊
The people that I know that are chronic attention-seekers are now that way precisely because they get too much of it. I assume it begins with soem sort of hangup or insecurity, then you get 'addicted' to the flashes of attention you do get, until it is a driving force for you.
Initially they have some insecurity and they want some attention to salve it. Eventually, they need attention simply for attention's sake, purely because they have had too much attention to begin with and they feel somehow diminished without it. Not everyone, but I have seen it a lot over my life.
