I've Been There

     Where you are, I've been there, too. I don't have the words to make it better, all I can say is I know what it looks like - I've seen it in the mirror. This time I don't have any advice. I just want you to know that I've been there. And whether or not it still shows on our faces, so have the rest of us.

     We all want to feel like we have something - we can't name it or describe it, but we search for it in the faces of everyone from newly introduced strangers to our closest family and friends. We look for a smile, a laugh, or even the simplest nod of understanding. We have to know that there's something about us that makes others feel drawn to us. Heck, we all just want to be liked.

     I've been in that spot where it feels like I don't have anything. I've been there. I know what it feels like to feel like you're just one in a crowd. It's worse than being disliked or hated. In that case, at least you're something. Like I said, I don't have any advice. The best I can do is assure you that, without doubt, I've felt that before. I've been there, too.

I haven't checked your blog in AGES, I just realized.

It's a pity, though, since your texts are always full of empathy and deep insight. This one, especially.
What you describe also reminds me of the times you want to be someone - anyone - else, since the life of any other person, not matter who, seems to be more bearable than you own; others always seem to have chances, why yours - if you feel you have any - seem to be
few...

What you describe: You've been there, I've been there... basically everyone is there at some point, but I think many people are too shallow to realize it or remember it, which leads to a lot of not-understanding and mistreatment. :( Unforunately...

I hope you're going fine right now. :)
Love
Ninon
