Cellphones get their batteries low, laptops, tablets. Almost every gadget I know gets their batteries down and sometimes when overused it just turns dead, plain black screen and useless. That is the way of their saying they’re pretty tired, that they are at their edge.
But for a human being like me? Like you? How do you show people that you’re getting tired? How do you subtlety tell them that you’re almost reaching your limit? How do you let them know that this time you wanna be the one to be cared about? I know I’m making a bad comparison but I just want to say that people get tired too.
Sometimes you’ve grown so tired, you reach a certain point that you keep telling yourself to don’t care anymore, anyway its going to happen again and again, so why care? So you just sit down there, act like you’re fine and pretending not giving a shit but deep inside it’s hurting you. You stop caring, you stop doing the things you normally used to do for someone, you act plainly normal and you’re trying to decrease the affection you show for them (But who are you kidding? Admit it, you can’t care less.). In short, you’re treating them coldly.
You start acting cold as ice, like nothing’s wrong. But all you really want is to be noticed, you want them to notice your sudden change of behavior. You are waiting for them to ask you if you’re okay then you’ll probably answer everything’s doing fine. Then here goes you’re romantic imagination that they won’t buy your answer and will keep on asking you what’s troubling you til they arrive at the realization that they’ve done something bad to you and you want them to admit it themselves. You want them to be knowledgeable of their own shortcomings. The problem with guys is that no matter how long you’ve been together, they can’t easily sense that’s something’s troubling/hurting their partners. They should sense or know it even without questioning you. I’m not saying guys are insensitive but they can’t really afford to be as sensitive to someone’s feelings as we girls are.
Okay, to wrap up things, let me just clear it that when girls start acting cold, they’re not totally angry with you, they just want your loving, they want you to understand them. Guys, we can’t always lay everything in front of you, sometimes you have to seek it yourself. We just want you to care a little more.
PS: Am I too demanding? Let me know. These are just my thoughts.
