Why is it?  
Why is it that those who deserve things the least seem to get the most? Why are those who cannot conduct themselves as adults, who aren't capable of taking care of themselves, rewarded for their incompetence? Why are those who are the most self centered catered to? How is it that the angst and drama are so attractive?

Flowers, jewels, trips to romantic destinations seem to shower from the heavens for them.

Why are those of us who do for ourselves, who care for others, who are polite and reasonable overlooked? Is it because we *can* stand alone? Because we *don't* need the spotlight, need the drama?

Maybe I need to be more dramatic, more selfish, more vocal...

You wouldn't like yourself if you were.
People who can stand up for themselves do get less attention. We aren't grieving, we aren't moping, we aren't showing ourselves in need of help - and people like to help. It bears out in my own posts, I get a lot more response to disaster than I do anything else. My entertaining posts come in a distant second.

There are people who look for the stable ones, BTW - for friends, for lovers, for generally hanging out with. Mayhap you need to find a few more of these people?
