Maybe No one understands me

It seems like I should be able to find people that are like me....somewhere, out there....but it seems like everyone is avoiding the things I care about. I like to have fun, I like to talk about important things. Just because I like music and movies, doesn't mean I care about the lives of the idols...I don't care. They're living their lives, while I'm living mine. I want to talk about what matters to us, I want to talk about what we can do about our problems, and stop avoiding and ignoring them. Maybe if everyone was a little more human, or maybe that's the problem... Maybe I'm insane...

Avoiding and ignoring ARE what people do about their problems. Most of us have become experts at wasting our time and energy by focusing on unimportant issues, materialistic dreams, and unrealistic idols. I understand your frustrations; Ive had these same thoughts. Dont feel your alone; I feel as you do. Yes, thats right . . . I am insane too!

You are not insane. I believe and feel the same exact way. It is just as I like to consider myself, a random being. We are human, yes. We function the same way physically as the rest of society, yes. But it is just that we see things in a more in-depth manner. There is nothing wrong with that. I think it is very important for people to focus on the important issues in their lives and it is most definitely important for us to stop avoiding our problems because though we all know this only creates more problems down the road, many forget about the fact that it can also damage the person more emotionally and mentally. I say, continue to be as you are. I have asked multiple times where are the people like me, so that I too can socialize more often about important issues, and I have come to the realization that they are out there, it is just that we are not in the same city, or state. Sometimes we may not even be in the same country, but one day for sure, I will find a way to meet just one person like me, because this will be a very intersting time. :] Many blessings. And hey, you're not insane. I'm out here. :]

Not to mention, the problems that drip down from what we don't fix in our lives, affect who? Other people, and even worse, the ones we love.

Nice to meet real people. Some people forget that there is a person on the other side of the screen... and some people just don't think...

yeah, I have issues like that as well. I don't have really any friends, I mean I have a few, but if you where to put me in a high school stereotype group, I'd be the outcast of the outcasts... there was one kid i got along with really well, but that kid got arrested for conspiracy to commit murder and expelled about 2 weeks ago, and it bothers me more than I'm willing to admit. I mean, I do have other friends, but alot of them, most of them, could really care less about me, I just don't fit with them if that makes sense, it bothers me more that people are now being nicer to me just because of this, and maybe that's kinda weird...

I'm sorry to hear about that....I had some friends that up and left school for different reasons, and it can be hard, especially depending on the reason. If you want friends, you'll have friends, you just need to be there for friendship...if you ever want someone to talk to online...I'm always here, I could always use a friend or two...:)

Have faith!!! There is a whole world of crazies out there, someone must share your personal brand of crazy. Personally, I surround myself with people who are slightly left of center, because the ones who are square in the middle bore me to tears. I admire a person who has interest in their own life and wants to live in their personal world instead of vicariously through someone else. Stand proud. You are not alone!!! You may be insane, but really, have you ever met an interesting person who wasn't?

True, true and truer....I'm way off center, kinda tweaked..lol...... but yes...I have never met an interesting sane person.... anyone I find interesting, is bizarre, they say there is a fine line between genius and insanity!

You are far from insane. You have a serious mind and that is good. You are in the right place to find people to discuss important things with, and to share your thoughts with, at mylot. In real life I never meet people who share my feelings about life but here in myLot discussions I find there are many people who feel the same way I do. Try to get a lot of different friends and add interests to your myLot profile. Then you should find there are other people here who want to discuss things with you that you like to talk about.

Everyone tries to be what they are and can be. Everyone is trying to live in oftentimes trying times and certainly they deserve what they've got. Everyone could get more if they wanted more, that's automatic. What's not so automatic is the time when these things will come. You say maybe you're insane. A very wise man once said to me, "Everyone is crazy for something; some are crazy for love, others for money and fortune; we are crazy for God. There is always something that everyone is crazy about. Therefore everyone is crazy." Cheers!!
