    For a while now it feels

    as if you've been preparing me.Showing me that my place in your world is....not in your world.That the feelings you may have had....if not gone,have shifted and drifted into something I can no longer define.As I feel you slip from my grip,I recoil from you.Not wanting to be the...

    My coworker is a very beautiful Danish woman.

    More often than not, when a male customer comes to our counter, she is the one he wants to wait on him. Men will gaze right past where I am standing in front of them to get her attention. Ok, fine. I have a standing joke with my boss that I should have put on my blond wig...

    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

    Sometimes

    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...

    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've just started my uni life

    and everything seems to be alright, but it's not. I think i have the difficulty with making new friends, or even meeting new people. In this class i know only my roommate, so i get closed and stuck with her. We go anywhere together. The problem is when the others start talking...

    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...

    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.

    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..

    Yep. When your standing at the open door of a

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

    I Know I Am But

    ...I don't need a daily reminder. I don't need to hear how I need to speak up more or stand out. I don't need to hear, "Oh, you're (she's) so quiet!" everyday. And I'm so f*cking tired of hearing, "Is she even here today?" or "I didn't even hear you come in." So what? Do I need...

    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...

    I'm pretty good at remembering people

    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.

    There are so many emotions

    that I can hide so well around others. Yet they will never be heard anyways since I'm nothing but a speck of color. I may be seen by everyone purely as something to look at, but never someone, with feelings. Always just something..a ghost with a rainbow cape..a clock with broken...

    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.

    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 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.

    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. :/

    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.
