Well, I can certainly relate to this. It's happened to me a number of times (& has been mighty hurtful, might I add.) I too, could never understand WHY MY meaningful, heartfelt questions or posts were completely ignored while somebody elses post about a blender lid popping off, was such a hit.
What I'm not sure is WHICH site you are referring to in this case, though??
It seems people often have their "mask/ armor/ wall" up, and protect themselves from such things.
Or... some personalities love discussing (only) meaningful things, while others don't prefer it, and prefer other types of discussion. For me, I ONLY like meaningful discussion, or I'm completely losing interest (& focus.)
Also, sometimes it seems to boil down to "me-ism"/ selfishness..... they seem to want to discuss themselves.
There's also the idea that what is meaningful to one person is not meaningful to another.
-I find that even in our HSP group, I'm learning about this: For example,
I can be attracted/ distracted to decor & design when I 1st enter a home, but they are not. I thought it would be a HSP thing; yet it is not. What I learned is that It's meaningful to ME, because I happen to be interested in those things.
I don't know... there could be so many reasons.... probably not just one reason, that's for sure.
BUT... I'm talking about HSP vs. non-HSP, and it SOUNDS like YOU are talking about HSP vs. HSP?? Is that right?
Then again, you are saying "HP", not HSP, so what do you really mean?
Also, curious to know your own thoughts on all this Peter. ;-)
