    I Love Being Invisible, Really!

    It makes me feel safe. After two attempted sexual assaults and one full blown rape, I enjoy not having men stare at me or hit on me. I like feeling unnoticed as I go about my day. The days where I am not invisible tend to be the ones I struggle with.

    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.

    Being Invisible...

    It gets really annoying how you want to catch the attention of someone else...like a friend or a guy...I'm always in school and I feel invisible to guys I guess...I know I'm young to be in a relationship but I want to experience what it's like to be noticed in a positive way..You...

    I Am a Ghost.

    With feeling for life returning and a new smile widening across my face, I feel the stirrings of life and I remember how I died. Death came in a sentence, it ended all my dreams and all my hope and my future faded and turned to black. My heart stopped and I ceased to be. I...

    Sometimes I think my balance and logic are my greatest strengths, but most penalizing handicap at the same time.I'm not a damsel in distress, or a helpless maiden on the verge of doom. No, I have fought through (and still struggle against) a lot of very scary, tragic and...

    I feel invisible sometimes.

    I speak to people and they either don't reply, or give the standard uh huh. I want someone to actually listen to what I'm saying not just hear it. People speak over me and then when they notice it and try to let me speak it just feels even more awkward. I do so much for everyone...

    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...

    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 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...

    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 ...

    Yesterday I was picking up dinner

    for a friend and me, and as I was waiting in line there were at least 8 guys around my age in front of me. I was all dolled up and looked pretty cute but not a single one even glanced my way. Am I completely invisible or what?

    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.

    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...

    There are so many emotions

    Sometimes is an understatement.

    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...

    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...

    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..
