Attention seeking is a very normal human behavior. You must seek attention by your deeds and not by exaggerating your challenges and problems. Exaggeration of your problems does no good to you, in fact it harms you in the long run. It is quite simple and straight. You draw what you focus on and in trying to seek attention by overemphasizing your problems you are actually focusing on and will end up drawing more and more of them. Always have positive attitude and thoughts, get recognition and attention by doing things and achievements, concentrate on the process and not the result and you will surely find happiness and peace, which are the goals of all goals, and stay blessed always.
