    How It Feels To Be Invisible...

    I think that I've felt invisible for almost my entire life.  When I was 14, I was raped and the doctor told my parents that if they noticed any "strange behavior", to bring me in again....well, over the next 5 years after that, I faked sick from school, eventually dropped out of...

    It was always so strange

    but i used to feel like this, i feel so unreal, like the real me is invisible, like my body is something outside me, that really nothing means, i used to walk down the streets and imagine that nobody see me :-)

    Invisible In The Office

    I am invisible at the office.  It's an entirely different sort of experience for me.  My clients and customers are friendly and joke and laugh with me but my co-workers, supervisor and other office occupants behave as if I'm not even there.  When they refer to...

    I Am

    I am invisible. I talk, i wasn't heard. I'm there, no one saw. I can speak, speak a lot, no one stops , no one understands. Yes I was there, I know you don't recall. Unremarkable, noticed for helping and when they realize, too late, too late something is wrong. I've been here, I...

    when I want to be invisible.

    It's not that hard, just look slightly to the ground, and blend in, no one will notice you. Working as waiter helps you becomming it :)

    Am I A Bad Person?

    I've always been a shy person. That tends to make someone invisible pretty fast. I was always the one that had to walk up to people though. No matter how much I helped people, tried to joke around, be as nice as I could or talk about my hobbies and things I wanted to do with...

    I'm Right Here.

    I am invisible. I know I truly am, because it's been this way my whole life. I think it's because I'm quiet and I'm small, and thus people just over-look me whenever I do decide to speak. Even my own "friends" see right through me, every comment I make goes ignored. For example...

    It isn't just about being invisible; It's about

    living in a glass cage. If the walls weren't made of glass, then at least I wouldn't have knowledge of how happy life could be.. if you weren't born me. Are the bars there to protect me from you or vice-versa? The only solace I take is that... I never had a fighting chance. This...

    I hate the way I am. I am very intelligent,

    but many people in my grade hate me for it. At the same time, there are so many people who make me feel unintelligent. I have no significant skills. I am on the heavier side, and I feel isolated because of it. My hair is short. I feel miserable, always. I just want to feel...

    I feel invisible in my marriage.

    There is a deep disconnect with my husband. He never notices me or sees me. Only time he talks to me is to criticize me . This sounds crazy but we are so separate I had to stop and think of what his first name was the other day.

    Remember that person

    that you couldn't stop thinking about? Remember your first "love" (overused word)? Can you think of the last friend you contacted? Yeah I'm none of these things, never have been, and probably never will be. People can't see a good person if it spit in their face!

    I really dislike the fact

    that people assume I'm shy because I'm quiet. I wish people knew who I really am instead of knowing me from what others have said. To sum up, being misunderstood sucks.

    Do People Even Notice That I Am Alive

    I do not know what I would do if a friend or even a loved one would just call and ask me how I am doing. There are some at work that just walk by and say nothing and I do take this personally. I think these feelings just fester and get worse. At times I will say hello or...

    Neutral

    Today I'm feeling neutral with the world..I'm not happy nor am I particularly sad..I'm just here. I don't exactly know why or what my purpose is anymore. I feel cold..emotionless as if I'm dead but still here. I would put a smile on but why fake emotions... I'm just neutral.

    No one talks to me, or acknowledges my presence.

    I don't fit. But i have feelings to, I'm a person, I exist. So I end up retreating into the bubble they made for me.

    I notice as the days go by,

    I seem to not matter anymore. I'm never the "center of attention" friend. Nobody texts me anymore or calls me just to see how I'm doing, people don't even talk to me in person anymore. When I'm at school, I'm just kind of "there". I'm just an ant compared to the rest of the...
