40 Tired Of Being Ignored Quotes That Will Help You Stand Up For Yourself

Being ignored can be, quite literally, one of the worst feelings imaginable. If you find yourself in such a situation, perhaps this list of tired of being ignored quotes I have gathered will be of some help.

It can be a lot, if not far more painful, to be ignored rather than just, for example, being insulted. The latter is not pleasant either, of course, but at least your existence is recognized. When someone ignores you, they are acting as if you do not exist at all, as if there isn’t a human there that deserves to be seen and heard just as much as everyone else. There are few things that can be more terrible than that.

Unfortunately, I can do very little to help if that is happening to you. But, if nothing else, perhaps you can read these tired of being ignored quotes that I hope you will appreciate.
