I get nearly constant reminders that I am interruptible, that what I have to say isn’t as important as the more popular person approaching my group, that I am unimportant.

me with my unsurprising low self-esteem


  1. Jayden says:

    I hate people like that. I sometimes feel that way, too. But I know I want to hear what you have to say!


  2. I happen to like what you have to say.

    Power move- unless you would rather hear what the other person has to say, just keep talking, increasing your volume, and using super excited tone. “This is cat. My cat. BEST CAT. BEST CAT EVER OF ALL CATS!!! GO CAT, GO CAT…” It’ll throw people at first, but eventually they’ll stop interrupting because they’ll worry you’ll go nuts. Of course, it only really works if you can put passion into the volume. That’s what those motivational speakers do. They put passion into the volume, and then they don’t get interrupted.
    Unless they say something that triggers someone. Because if that person is more passionate, they’ll take over the conversation.
    A cheeto ran a campaign based on his ability to speak with loud passion while being fairly vague about what he meant. (“Great” is a weak adjective. But if he said “racist,” well… maybe things would have been different. Maybe.)
