    Me Be

    The vast majority of philosophers would argue that I do exist.  There are a few esoteric mystics and sci-fi screenwriters who’d like me to doubt it but, obviously, if I can doubt then I exist.  The same argument holds for anything like a ‘Trapped in a dream/virtual vat...

    Me, From

    I am the sum of echoes and shadows, a dance of matter, energy, and essence stemming from a history of incident and causality with no discernable relevance to me. My being is resultant of uncertainty,  born of  the implied effect of causes never actualized. Of the laws...

    I don't have any recollection of joining this experience or seeing this before, but there it was in "My Experiences"   Does it mean I don't exsist?  Or that I do?  This is not the first time I've done or said that I can't remember - and yes, I ...

    But I don't know why.

    I don't have a purpose on this planet, I'm just taking up the space of someone else. I'm a waste of time and breath, so idk why anyone would want to even get to know me. I'm better off all alone or not even alive.

    Feels Like That Is All

    Just existing, very little living. Get up, work, eat, sleep. Repeat endlessly.

    I may not have a clue

    as to why but I do. I don't understand why I'm alive or keep surviving and just chugging along if you will... I have no Idea as to what I want or what I need. I don't really have motivation right now and I don't know where to find it. Just lost I guess.

    I'm Not Invisible

    I just feel like screaming: I EXIST I AM HERE I AM NOT INVISIBLE. Most of the time I feel that i am actually invisible. I actually believe sometimes that no one knows that i exist. When I walk in the room no one notices. People just walk past me and don't even look at me. Just...

    I Exist

    I am not living a life I am only existing. I breathe, I eat, I drink but I am not living I am dead inside and wish that I could go to sleep and not wake up. The only person that I want in my life wants no more to do with me and I can't hack it.

    I Exist, But Why?

    I am here. I am part of this Earth. I am a productive member of society. I am an active part of the rat race that goes about my business day after day. But for what? What does it all mean? I have no great ambitions to change to the world. I have no desire to procreate. When am I...

    I Exist, But It Was Close

    The reason I say I exist but it was close? My parents didn't have me until over 17 years of being married. My father was convinced he couldn't have children and it was his fault. However, after some medical problems were fixed on my mother's part and her womb was cleaned out I...

    In Spite Of You

    You did your best to get rid of me, yet I AM. I wait and wait to hear about how Karma has come for you. But it never does. I don't believe in anything where you are concerned. Only that I hate you. When will you reap what you have and are sowing? I now exist for that. To hear of...

    I had FOUR Times to existI remember

    as a little girl, I was sitting in this chair with my legs folded in. I was staring at a window during the night wondering why I existed. And it's alarming to think I was that young to be thinking of something like that. I wondered why? What was this? What am I supposed to do...

    I've never felt like I did anything more than exist. I guess that's just who I am. I've always worked to go though school undetected, and I became that kid no one remembers from class. Or maybe just that quiet kid who never said his name. But I don't know. I've been wondering...
