    Numb

    Yes, yes, and yes....I don't want rose colored glasses. I just want people to respect me for the unique person that I am...and for the contribution that I can make. I seem to muster up regard even for those that I consider annoying, over-zealous, boring, hyper, belligerent, self serving, and ignorant. I see them as somehow necessary for the greater whole...which is beyond my meager little opinions of people. But my occasional lapses of memory, misplacing my keys, or getting lost on a street I take every day...are seen as major defects...an abomination before God...or something I need to be medicated for.

    But the world is not going to change...so, I try not to care.

    Yeah an ex recently told me I was bipolar. *sigh*

    No, I don't want rose-colored classes; I just want the world to be tinted rose. I know it will never happen, so like many of you I try not to think about it. I just want to keep the flame of my creativity perpetually burning, perpetually fed. And yes, I want to find a soul mate who can help me do that, who I can help pursue their dreams as well. If I can get that, forget the nay-sayers! Life is too beautiful to be bogged down by them.

    I remember while growing up feeling a wave of emotions. Everything felt significant but now I'm not sure what is important. I have bouts of inspirations, but they are short-lived and replaced by a feeling of indifference. Out of all of those childhood emotions it seems one of the only ones left is anxiety, aside from the sensations of food, coffee, and beer.

    My mind has great denial mechanisms that prevent me from thinking about this subject too much in fear of inducing depression again, but this voluntary ignorance has me running in circles.

    I'm not very sensory and I'm also not much of a thinker, so having such a limited spectrum of emotions really makes life bland. Nothing seems that meaningful in the grand scheme of things, and I believe I reached this conclusion with my mind rather than some string of emotions.


    Anyone else in this boat or a similar one?
    Yep. Right on.

    I too feel this way. Life seems rather bland. The only thing really keeping me from being totally depressed is the fact that I'll be moving away to go to college next year. But honestly I am extremely scared of potentially failing, because to me that would represent me ending up stuck in a limited, bland life for the rest of my existence! D:

    Fear is a natural emotion, but think about it this way: if you don't even try, you'll be guaranteed that humdrum life you're afraid of falling into! Give it all you've got.

    Agree to that... many possibilities just run by because of fear doing wrong... There is no right way to do things, just do them! What Ive learned from my experiences being a non stop thinker.

    This may have to do with a lack of using Ne. Look at all of the enfps. Look how enthusiastic and energetic they are. Wanna know why? Because they are us...they are running from the dull fog that we know so well.

    I think we prolly need to start looking around us more....taking things in...not making too many judgments....and most of all...help someone.

    I've gone to great lengths to try and snap out of this feeling with no success for many years. I'm contemplating throwing myself in to the world of volunteering on top of my current job and giving up on things like relationships, a family or kids. Essentially becoming a Monk I guess.

    I want my rose-colored glasses back. I'm usually always depressed, but just fake it to make it through the day. At this point in my life, I see nothing to look forward to in life, but hopefully things change soon.

    Sometimes when I feel down....I feel uncomfortable around happy people (generally of course). I feel as if my mood pulls them down ...and I can't do anything about it....I can't even fake being happy to make them feel better...cause they can sense that too.
