    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 :)

    I was walking through the hallway

    and a few other people were coming directly at me. As I moved over, they moved for someone else and walked right in to me.

    No One Remembers Me

    When my friends started joining Facebook, they encouraged me to join, too. However, while they were getting friend after friend request--I wasn't receiving any. Many of the people who were "friending" my friends were people who had known me, too. I have not gotten a single...

    I only seem to appear to be a living human being

    when people need help with something. Other than that I'm a floating mysterious substance that no one knows exists. What is life.

    Its true. the only time people can see me is

    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...

    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 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.

    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...

    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 :-)

    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...

    You Can't See Me

    Just in case I ever forget how invisible I am to others, life often likes to remind me... I went into a Chinese restaurant the other night to place an order. The place was extremely busy - phones constantly ringing, people running back and forth to the kitchen, etc...

    I feel as if I am an automaton.

    No one pays attention to me and they only see me as an object to preform tasks. My emotions are primitive, shallow, and don't redeem me from this position. People comment on how I am like a computer or I'm too technical in speech for them. I do get compliments on working hard...

    I don't feel like I exist in your dimension.

    Maybe I'm only there in 2D. I'm forgotten and left out and excluded from memories and moments of lives. I'm the afterthought you turn around for when you have the good graces in mind that day. I'm cold and absent anyways. When I'm not jumping into conversation I'm staring blank...

    I came here to the internet b/c I felt

    invisible IRL. I am about as lonely in one as I am in the other. I even accumulate female companions who will talk to me online, but I feel meaningful to them for awhile, then I become insignificant to them, and they stop bothering to talk to me. My misconception came when I...

    What the hell is wrong with my family its like

    I'm invisible, i start talking and they talk over top of me. Do they have no respect? They don't even regard that I'm in the room. I sound so self centered.

    Invisible Man

    "I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allan Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids — and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply...

    Irrelevant. Insignificant.

    Unimportant. A shadow. A drifter. Disconnected. It's strange. Everyday is a new feeling. And today I couldn't help but feel invisible. I think it's a feeling that's been growing and a state of mind that gets stronger. Often looked over. Unless someone needs a jester, then...

    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'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...

    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...

    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.

    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!

    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.
