I Sometimes Feel As Though I Don't Exist

For the people out there who feel invisible. 378 People

    I Don't Even...

    Sometimes I feel like I don't exist, life rushes around me. People exchange brief glances, gestures, and general acknowledgment while I seem to stand in the eye of the storm, unconnected and unaffected. The wind blows hardest downhill as I walk up hill, but it passes right...

    Getting Better I Think

    I used to have a superpower. I could be invisible. However, this superpower only worked on Sunday nights. The power of invisibility was granted at church immediately after the service ended. It was most powerful and painful at an inner city church I used to go to five years ago...

    Pretty Odd

    Somewhere along the way I became aware of this odd feeling I have had for quite a while now. Reality - time, is being structured by periods. Seconds, minutes, hours, days. These pass. But sometimes, they don't seem to count me in. I can not really describe it otherwise. It...

    Many Different Ways That I Feel This

    I feel that I don't exist sometimes because as nice as I am to people and as kind as interested as I am in people I don't feel like I get the favor back-- I don't have many "friends", my fiance' is my best friend-- It's like I'm...

    Am I Invisible?

    Does anyone really see ME?  I think my kids see the maid, the cook, the learning coach, the scout leader.  At church, they see a potential committee member, a mom, a soprano.  I'm a volunteer, a voice. My husband says he does, but even he doesn't see what's...

    NOT Here Any More

    Lately it just seems as if everything is so far from where I am.   Sometimes I thought I heard something but it seemed so distant that I wasn't sure I did. Anymore it is like I am somewhere else far off from everyone and can't seem to tell...

    I seem to be a ghost among the living.

    I might as well live the (after)life of a ghost. It's just so hard to go on

    Reality

      One day reality hit me; i basically have no FRIENDS. I mean..if i were to have a party-it'd basically be empty. If i were to die-nobody would really be there. I'm to afraid/shy to break free and join things on my campus. *just wanted to share*

    Scared Of Being Forgotten

    I don't know what it is, but I have a fear of being forgotten. Mostly to the people that have been in my life for a significant amount of time. Some of you may have this fear and it's completely normal because if you feel forgotten, you feel invisible which makes you feel worse...

    Although I hang around with a group of "friends", it feels as if I am slowly sinking into the depths of an ocean. While they are chattering on about a mindless topic, I am the awkward person sitting off toward the corner. Do they even see me? Think of me? KNOW me? Because quite...

    I've had an issue with feeling invisible for years. It started when I was in school. Somehow I always magnificently flew under the radar. I was a ghost in the halls. I guarantee you that many of my teachers don't remember me at all. At my last job I was a cashier. In being so I...
