I Am Not Special and You Probably Arent Either

Celebrating the Mundane In Us All 231 People

    I joined this group because I liked the title

    so much. We're such silly creatures, wasting colossal energy making a fuss and often about things that are pretty inconsequential. I know I do it too, and I love catching myself in the middle because those moments make for some of the best laughs.

    And Why Not??

    Who is to say that we are not special? We are all unique in our own way and although we have our likenesses and faults no two of us are exactly alike. So I join this group to say we are special in our own way even if that way is challenged....... and that is not to say anything...

    So Stop Using That Word; Geez

    I've seen a lot of groups/people (and I won't point any fingers, but those of you who are as cynical as me probably have a good idea who I'm talking about) who crusade day in and day out to be recognized as "special." Well, unidentified demographics, you're not. You're weird...

    Everyone Is Trivially Unique, But Few Are Special

    We all have differences that make us unique, and in a sense, the cliche of each individual being like a snowflake is true. In the cases of most people, these differences are as trivial as music preference and dress sense. The majority of people do not have a really outstanding...

    I Know, I Understand

    I know that once I am dead I will just be a memory of those who I once knew. I know that in one hundred years I will be forgotten. I will leave no footprints on this earth. I know this. I understand this. And I really hate it.

    In Tejas, of course, it is pronounced "spatial".

    Do I Exist?

    When I was born I was the 5,889,386,956th person alive on earth. Why should I feel special. I want to be seen. I want to change someones life. I want to inspire people and make a difference. I want to be noticed. I want to feel, for once, that I exist.

    Why People Think That Is Beyond Me

    Well, actually it isn't. I have seen many people in private practice, public forums and group settings that just think that they are not special. Sad. Because they are. Some of them think that others aren't either in the way they treat them. They have become void of feelings of...

    After my shift at the mill,

    I drove to his home. I rang the bell on the oversized deck that overlooks the acres. The smell of wet grass and pines fills my senses as I stood waiting for his response. It's late as he wipes the sleep from his eyes looking with a quizzical stare. No words spoken, I walk past...

    Don't Think You Are More Special

    ... than me... I have a right to be here too, just like the rest of us created all with a purpose... poem to myself since you deny my voice: "You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you...

    Special Yet Not

      I thought I was different, unique even special.  Then I found EP.  Now don’t get all hot under the collar here and start talking about just how special we are.  Hear me out first.  I find that I like not being ‘so special'.  I find a...

    I enjoy getting on here

    and reading everyone's posts. When I'm angry or sad, I just type in my problem and read about others going through the same **** I am. There is not much I can post on here that isn't all ready being said or done by somebody else. I'm not different or special, and that's nice to...
