When you are so used to getting a lot of attention from one particular direction or source, it becomes a habit. The source makes you feel secure and believe that it is going to persist for as long as forever is spoken of. But when your source starts diverging and dividing your share of attention elsewhere is where you start feeling self doubt, anxious about if you're not worthy enough and so you become engulfed in so much of negativity that no matter how much you try to recover yourself, you find yourself stuck at the end of the tunnel, in utter darkness.
So it is a request to the sources, if you cannot continue to provide attention for long, do not try to indulge people who are vulnerable or once were with your short-lived attention series. We're not okay, we never will be.
