there probably are people who CLAIM they don't care, but i don't think it's true, i think it's an inherant part of human nature to want to be liked and accepted, and yes, popular.

There are other things I'd rather be. I'd rather enjoy myself and be happy than live my life wanting to be liked. I've tried all that and it sucks. Now I like myself and that's all I need.

of being famous? the point is people want to be recognised as being worthwhile and attractive, even if it isn't neccessary fame is just an ego boost. I certainly wouldnt' mind being famous!

I've been popular through pretending to be someone I'm not - I've been unpopular through acting like myself....I prefer to be unpopular and stay sane

the only point in life is to make a difference to people's lives and also that in 100 years from now you'll be remembered othewise what was the significance of your life? well that's my view anyway...

Exactly. Nothing matters in the grand scheme so don't put too much emphasis on every little trauma or triumph. Keep it in perspective people.

PQ is popular (here at least) by being herself. I find that if you seek popularity you lose yourself, but if you seek to be yourself the level of popularity you deserve comes to you.

but just because it's not NECCESSARY doesn't mean it's not desirable. Popularity is a luxury, and everyone likes luxuries. I think people who say they don't want to be popular only say that cuz they no they never will be. It doesnt' mean you're not a good person or watever, it just means that some people are naturally more sociable or good looking or funnier than others. People who say they don't want to be popular have actually accepted the fact that they never will be, which is a good thing, but no need to lie and say you wouldn't want it.

I know i'll never marry brad pit doesnt' mean i say i don't want to

I know she's VERY popular on here - my point is exactly what grace has just said - she's just much better at explianing herself than me
