i feel like such an outsider and like no one understands me. i have a very different personality than my sisters and they don't understand the way i function. but i don't have anyone else to talk to because my personality makes it so hard. im not a mean person, im just quiet and like to socialize differently than most people. im also a more serious person. i do joke but i enjoy having deep discussions a lot and no one ever gets that. i can't explain it to anyone and no one is going to read this and i just feel so alone and like no one understands me and it makes me wish i wasn't here at all because i can't find anyone who really understands my personality. and no one's going to read this so im just talking to myself again. no one will ever understand me. i think ill be alone forever.

      I relate to a lot of this. I feel very very isolated because I experience life in such a vastly different way, everyday conversations make me realize how far apart I really am from 99% of people. There are things that they just cannot understand. I’m lucky I found one person who has some experience so that we can relate. I know I’m very lucky for this and he is an extremely important and valued part of my life. Point being, there are people who can relate and understand. It’s just hard to find them. A big win is just finding someone who wants to, who tries to understand. And it’s ok if they cannot really understand. You don’t have control over that, it’s just how it is. But just because no one understands doesn’t mean you’re alone. You are still cared about. Crazy how many people can relate to being lonely

      I also struggled finding people to talk to. I don’t like gossip or small talk. I prefer to talk about how I or you feel. I’m very honest. Although people say that’s what they want I’ve found very often it isn’t. I used to be sarcastic and joking but my experience has changed me and I don’t joke too often now. I’ve always walked to the best of my own drum and never just did or agreed with something because everyone else did. It’s hard and lonely but if I acted to be accepted I’d be disappointed in myself and feel I lost my honor. I’ve realized that when you have no one to talk to when you do I’ve just blurted out everything which doesn’t go over well. I more intelligent at a lot of things but stuff that seems to come natural to people I can be a complete idiot. There’s nothing wrong with you. I think we’re just wired a little different and there’s more of us out there. There just not easy to find and you have to go thru a lot of failed attempts that is sad, hurtful, lonely, and makes you feel like you don’t belong. But in all honesty we’re the ones who belong because a lot of people who are successful are willing to cross lines we won’t

      I feel this so hard. No matter how hard i try, i cannot make friends beyond acquaintances. I feel so alone all by myself. Let me know if you wanna try to chat or something!

      You are not alone in feeling this way. I myself am the same as well as my husband. We often have conversations about this very thing and trying to fit in with work or our families. For me, I have come to know God and while that relationship isn't perfect, it has helped when I get down about not having friends and what not. The other thing too is, loving yourself the way you are and going about the world having fun for you. Eventually someone somewhere comes along.

      Sometimes, when we feel like no one understands us, regardless of our diagnosis, it is up to us to assert ourselves with kindness and charity through service to others. I am not a shy quiet person, but I'm very different from the population at large. I have very rare Syndromes that consist of underlying diseases that I silently fight every day. Very few people, men especially understand what it's like to be me. I learned not to establish my self worth off of what others think of me, or what is "wrong" with me. I have learned to enjoy being alone, and independent. I also try to find ways to help people. Even if it's just 1 person that I hold the door for while they have their hands full. Whether it's groceries, children, or their own disability. The smallest thing you can do to help, can make a big difference to people. That gives me self worth. There are a lot of little things you get opportunities to do for others. It's what you DO that makes a difference, not how toy look.

      I can relate to how you are feeling. Invisible is a lonely place. Feel free to message me.

      I feel like this often. I don't have close relationships and it gets really lonely. After years of therapy I'm trying to accept that I'm not as sociable as my peers, and that's okay. It's okay to be alone so I'm trying to do nice things for myself when it's just me (which is most of the time unless I'm at work). Take yourself to a coffee shop, or to a movie, get a pedicure/manicure if you're into that, go on a walking trail. Anything that sounds enjoyable and you have the courage to be by yourself. Being alone is temporary, but you can do it!!!! You got this ❤️

        @ThemThomasTheo I also believe that people with BPD are different because we were biologically and environmentally made into this disorder. I can say for myself that I was born biologically more sensitive (and this can mean emotionally and/or physically) and then my environment growing up made it harder for me to communicate. It's a lonely world, but you will find people that love you the way you are.

      I actually feel just like this right now - accept I know there are always other people in the world who would understand, but finding those people is just so rare, so it's easy to feel completely alone. See, I found a guy I thought was a lot like me and we have been together for 4 years now but our relationship is looking rough, so I'm right back at square one : lonely. I want to find someone who is like me that I can focus all of my attention on, and would do the same for me. I want to be the center of their world as I would make them the center of mine. That could be platonic or romantic- I don't care as long as I have that. I relate heavily with how you describe yourself. I love deep discussions and feel out of place in the world. I have friends, but only one of them has a seemingly simalar mind to me - he always agrees and builds on topics we discuss and always relating to me. Only issue is we both never have time to talk, which really sucks. All of my other friends don't understand me or how I work but I appreciate that they still treat me human. It can definitely be hard finding people who you relate to but when you do, those relationships can go so far. If I seem like someone you would like to talk to, my dm is open and I'd love to talk ☆ Sending love your way friend!
