    Insubstantial,inconsequential

    I feel so small in my skin,nothing I actually say or do or think would ever make a dent. I feel insubstantial even with those I am closest too. I feel flimsy in their eyes. Incapable. Weak, a novelty to amuse yourself with. I need to know others feel this too. I may feel...
