Lost In The Sea

Judging by the huge number of members in this group, I'm am not alone in having this feeling. Just knowing other people feel the same way doesn't seem to help though.

I feel like my life is at a stand still. When I was younger I used to meet someone and sometimes feel an instant connection with that person. It was like they understood me after only knowing me a few minutes. I haven't felt that in years. As time passes I can see myself growing apart from humanity. I am slowly becoming more isolated and alienated while surrounded by others. My friends - though they are great friends - don't seem to really understand me.

Maybe it is because I have been single for so long now but I think it is more than that. I feel like I have become so different from everyone else that no one bothers to try to understand me. However, I have by no means lost hope.

I know one day I will meet someone who feels the same; isolated in a sea of people. Though it is hard to keep that hope alive, I won't give up

Indeed, we need to stay strong, haha, extraordinary minds are the minds that dare to think diffrently, it's a path you choose I think, tough I don't know where in life i chose it :P.

I felt my eyes get wet when I was reading what you wrote, it's like somebody else (you) looked into my head and wrote in words what i am feeling for a while now.<br />
It's like a feeling that you are not normal, you are not normal because nobody you know understands you, really understands you or feels the same. Great people around you, but the feeling they will never understand what You feel, how you think. Sorry for how i write, it may be confusing cause i feel confused...

I know that you understood what I wrote because I feel I understand you comment all too well. I'm sorry you feel this way too, but it is nice to hear that I'm not the only one. Stay strong :)
