How to survive when you don’t even exist for the world ?
Unless you’re Harry Potter with the cloak of invisibility, or the successor of Mr. India you exist. You take up space in this world, because you matter (get the chemistry joke?).
It’s common for you feel this way, like you don’t fit. Like nobody knows you exist. Everyone of us, including myself have been in your shoes at one point or the other. Whatever you’re feeling, is something all of us feel. So don’t beat yourself to it, be kind and take a deep breathe.
You surviving, breathing in this world, means you are here to achieve something. If you don’t fit in with a particular section of people, in a class, in a community chances are you don’t belong there, and trust me there is nothing wrong in that. Simply put, it means you’re different, unique.
Acknowledging your existence in this world, acknowledging the fact that you have a purpose to be here is the first step towards having the rest of the world acknowledging it as well.
Anytime you feel you don’t fit, and feel really sad about it remember this- You’re not alone, I’ve spent most of my teenage phase trying to find a space for myself where I can actually fit my thoughts in.
You’re meant for great things in life, just give yourself the time and kindness. You’ll get there eventually.
