Please CommentSometimes I feel like I am not me, or that who I am is actually somebody else. I know that I am me, and that I am in charge, but sometimes it just doesn't feel like that. I look in a mirror and what I see isn't who I am used to being. I feel like someone else. I sometimes feel like I am watching the story of somebody who is supposed to be me, but I am a third person watching, not a first person living. I can remember things that make me wonder if I am actually the person that was there, or if somebody else just told me about them. I feel programmed sometimes, like I am here because somebody or something built me and wanted to measure how I would react to certain situations. I feel like I could wake up right now and start living another life and that life would suit me better than this one. Maybe I will wake up as a young kid with the knowledge of a teenage boy about to enter college. Maybe my life just consists of the perception of things around me and I am just a body lying helpless in a lab somewhere being spoon fed visual and audio stimulants. I feel like where I'm at isn't life, but instead is an elaborate scheme of the universe, an accident, a controlled experiment, or a dream.
Does anybody else share any of these thoughts?
