    Sometimes I feel invisible.

    And often it bothers me. And then when I am around a bunch of strangers, every fibre of my body starts screaming, "I'm here! Notice me! Pay attention!" Sometimes the desire to be noted is so powerful, it is like I'm going to burst from my skin. (On the up side, if I do actually...

    Sometimes at a part or function I just don't

    feel there and see myself in the third person. I hate it and don't know why

    not that I mind most of the time.

    sometimes it feels empowering, like I can do anything and get away with anything. other times it makes life feel hollow and empty.

    That moment when you text someone,

    it shows they "read" the message, but they don't respond. Ever. So then you give it some time, text them again something completely unrelated, they "read" it again and, nothing. Good feeling. :/

    Sometimes is an understatement.

    .. Occasionally I don't mind, but it gets a bit much when you hear x is meeting y and a wants to see b and you're just there, alone, nobody reaching out to you unless they want something. I haven't seen anybody in about two weeks and I've had the grand total of one phone call and...

    The 'invisible' Syndrome

    I've suffered from this most of my life.  How easy it is for me to just fade into the background, to avoid engaging with others, to keep to myself and avoid getting too close to anyone.  I rarely meet anyone who I feel comfortable enough to share anything very ...

    I feel like I am not here.

    I don't exist to my friends and family. When I am having a hard time, I have no one to turn to. I have always had to go it alone. No one calls to make sure I am okay. I deal with things alone.

    There is a certain kind of hurt

    that can reach so deep, and can easily find it's way past my hearts defences, when I meet a woman who sees nothing of her own beauty. She forces my lips to to be silent and my heart to keep sweet sectrets. I obey out of consideration, but furtively plan a way to let my feelings...

    I am me, just plain and simple me. I may not be the most exciting person, the most beautiful woman, the sharpest most intelligent being around but I am me. I have no plans to change me for anyone as then I would no longer be me. The only opinion that would cause me to stray...

    I really do feel invisible to everyone in my

    life. I feel like no one really listens to me or even cares to. People only want me around when it's convenient for them. But other than that I'm basically invisible. I need new people in my life. People who appreciate me.

    Sometimes there are moments that I just feel like no one sees me or cares. It's as if I am not there. Since I like to help people and let them get there way I am starting to feel that I don't really know myself. I don't know how to get to know me either. I had one friend who...

    Sometimes when I talk to people they don't

    even look at me while I'm talking to them and don't even respond. Also, at school whenever people hold open the door for other people, they always walk in before me and let the door close if I'm last. Whenever we have to get in a group for an assignment, the teacher always has...

    and faces. Whenever I walk around town I recognise loads of people I know and they all seem to walk past me as though I don't exist. Yeah, it hurts.

    No one ever asked me to a dance in high school

    so I never went to homecoming or prom. I've never been taken or asked out on a romantic date, never gotten flowers from someone, never been showed interest in really. I often feel completely invisible and unwanted. I can't help but feel like there's something wrong with me..

    Lately, I feel like this at work.

    No one includes me and no one hears my ideas. When I try to talk it's just myself. And what I hate most is they see through you while you're talking to them.

    I just feel like I don't fit in with anyone.

    My classmates talk to me and I talk to them and they call me their friend but I've never really been part of something. Sure, I'm active in the conversation but I'm not really in it, my voice doesn't really matter. I'm not even making sense right now, I should stop.

    Yep. When your standing at the open door of a

    room filled with managers and none of them acknowledges you. You definitely feel invisible.
