Why is that? I have an opposite problem, I am afraid no one cares I exist and that's seems close to truth)
I am curious too!! . . . Perhaps Verra is not comfortable in social situations so she developed the idea of being invisible which gave her a sense of comfort. When it's threatened she feels uncomfortable? Is this how you feel, Verra? xxx
yes! @Keeping Track A that is exactly why.. i have avoidant personality disorder and social situations really heightens my anxiety. The idea of being invisible probably gave me a sense of comfort because that way if I 'messed up' in my mind No one ha
-s seen it, tho not very realistic at all. it's how ive been 'coping' and lately ive been more and more bombarded with reality and i came to a 'realization' that people do acknowledge me, CAUSE i freeken exist.
(((my depersonalization derealization disorder probably contributed to this mindset because this disorder makes me think real life is unreal...therefore im unreal too..))
@ivan hahaaa dangg how ironic people be wanting different complete opposite things ayeee
whoops . . . I was reading a book today. Sometimes we use maladapted coping techniques. I learnt about how dissociation is a coping technique developed during childhoodtrauma which is deprimental in adult life . . . makes sense. I hope you can manage
to grow and heal through this experience. Existing and being acknowledged can be pretty awesome sometimes. 😉
@Keeping Track A: heeehee all those info u just said from the book are facts >:) its only recently that i realize that i have still been using those maladaptive coping techniques i used as a child, now that im adult, those are not helpful--
-- and make me feel worse. and I actually challenged myself to be acknowledged today and im feeling great LOL existing truly can be awesome sometimes, u right bout that.
