You're not being ignored. You push people away from you bc you thought nobody will care, and nobody will be there for you.

If your always feeling ignored perhaps you haven't found the right people to be around. Meeting people who have more common interests and hobbies as you do may make it easier to be heard and not feel ignored.

Because you're not surrounded with people who know your true value :) You have surround yourself with people who value their time with you.

Because other people are busy, living their own worlds with their own crazy problems. Sometimes, even without meaning to, they forget to take time to notice and focus in on the important people like you. I'm sure if you feel like people are ignoring you, they aren't doing it intentionally. I know that if things get too hectic with my life, I'll do the same.

Don't worry. Learn to listen. The more you listen, more people will come to you and want to be with you. When the time is appropriate, you can put in your word and people will listen. It's not how much you speak is important, but it's what you speak and how it affects positively others matters. So learn to listen. That's the only way to attract people towards you.

Maybe your not being ignored. Maybe your just having a down day. Either way just be patient. I think we all have those days. It'll past though :)

It's normal to feel ignored when you have no one to talk to or everyone else seems to have their own discussion going on. We, as human beings are social animals and need to have some sort of social contact to feel wanted. It would be a good idea to think of what triggers such feelings? Try to understand why you feel this way? Do people always avoid you in general or is it one particular group that's doing it? Understanding reasons will help you gain insight into whether it's their attitude that's the fault or if you need to be more vocal to be involved with people.

I do too! It's quite common. Maybe, try voicing yourself louder! Put yourself out there so they know you're not one to take being ignored.

Are there particular people or settings that make you feel the most like this? How long have you felt this way?

Sometimes it can be easy to feel ignored if you are looking for different cues than what people are giving you when they are giving you their attention. In the right kinds of relationships, a quick fix to this might be to say something along the lines of, "Hey, I really feel like you are listening when ____," Sometimes changing communication makes a world of difference in how you feel in the world.
