It's funny.....well not really but it is something I have noticed throughout my life.   When I am around people and we are talking and doing our thing and I go along and agree with them and do not give my opinion every thing goes fine.  But no matter what or who I am with if I open my mouth and disagree with something I get knocked down and basically told that when I disagree with something I am made to look stupid and my opinion is pointless.  I always fear sharing my thoughts and it maybe because I am too sensitive I don't know but people always come back with a remark that puts me down and I feel worthless.  I have learned over the years to just keep my opinions to my self, keep my mouth shut and not say anything.  I just feel that I'm only good for people if I am helping them then they are my best friend but once I say what is on my mind they do not want to know me anymore.

Sure wish I could meet people that were not like that.

Thank you raviji for your comment and your right :)

I have faced this problem all my life. Anything which is against "normal" thinking is admonished. Basically the world is full of hypocrites.<br />

So what if they push u down. Stick to ur logic with sound argument. One day the world will turn around and listen to u

Thanks both of you, it helps that there are others out there who understand me. I sometimes feel so defeated because of this. I just cannot figure what I do wrong and why people turn on me when I say something but they do not want to hear it.

I know what you mean.<br />
<br />
You can say what is on your mind and they don't like what you say and what they say is right way to do.<br />
<br />
I feel you.<br />
