Have you ever felt being ignored by others?

Last month, I went out with my friends for a group lunch to a nearby restaurant. I don't like the food there. I wished to have my food at a different place. When I asked my friends whether any one of them could give me company, nobody responded. I felt sad for that and went on alone. This was the first incidence. But, on the very next day they even didn't ask me to go out with them even though they went to some other food joint. This time it was too much for me. I felt very ignored and I really doubted whether I am important for them at all!!! I thought whether they are true friends or I am only an 'EXTRA' in their group for whom they don't even care?? I would like you all my friends here to suggest me whether I would continue my friendship with those guys or just get away from them?? please friends share your thoughts...

It is true that those who don't care for you don't matter for you at all. But it always better make friends who are true to their words and keep you close to their heart. Being with them will never make you feel alone and they will surely be there whenever you are in trouble. That's true friendship.... Thanks for your response...

Yes, I do. It happens that sometimes, during dinners with my parents and my sister, I feel like I am ignored by them. It happens that the three of them have a conversation and I either can't put in a word, or simply don't have anything to say about what is being spoken about. I don't know why this happens. All I know is that it happens, and has been happening for quite some time. Sometimes, it hurts, but I've come to terms with it.

I do feel the same way for you. What I think is that if someone is not giving you importance, then you also should not care about that person... But, when it comes to family matter, I would like you to talk to them and tell them what you are going through. And I am sure they will understand and respond positively. Thanks for responding..Have a nice time...

being insulted is equal to being ignored . i dont like to be ignored ,i think that means someone doesnt respect you and you should feel angry with him . we must respect others'feelings

Well, you can compare insult and ignorance the same way. I would say ignorance can be taken as an indirect way of insulting without saying a word. In that way, ignorance and insult can be same, used to hurt somebody's sentiments. This situation did hurt my sentiments. Thanks for your response and concern, thank you.
