Perhaps everyone does to some extent. But, I think there are those who sometimes feel completely misunderstood by most people around them and most they come into contact with. Strangely enough though, it’s not a bad thing most of the time. Other times it can lead to feelings of isolation and even despair. Especially if you feel you understand many people, but haven't quite experienced the feeling of being "understood." To be honest, this doesn't necessarily have to have anything to do with sexuality, though that can play a role in it. I mean, naturally, there can be those elements as well. But more so just in general, like how you value people, relationships, emotionality, empathy...etc. Feels like, your intensity and the level at which you experience life, leaves you on the fringe especially within your "age group." Or sometimes, that you experience deeply and are impacted in ways people don't quite get. And ultimately, this causes problems when 'connecting' to those around you. If you do feel this way, do you get the sense that perhaps there is someone who feels the same way? And that maybe, there is a part of you that wanders aimlessly towards the distant call of your fellow wanderer(s)? Maybe just to give them a hug, a smile and let them know someone else understands? This wasn't supposed to be depressing, lol. Though, there is a melancholy. This makes for brilliant artists, geniuses, authors...etc, but incredibly lonely souls. I just thought I'd ask and see what people think. Anyone know what I'm referring to? How do you handle this?
