Re: Feeling very lonely, unappreciated
I disagree that she was being narcissistic. I think feelings are always valid, and that you are doing her and everyone a disservice for knocking her down in a moment of vulnerability.
Shamelreaper, I know where you're coming from. I, too, have felt isolated, alienated, left out of the crowd because people couldn't 'get' me. I've spent so many years blaming myself, my personality, my looks, but I realize that those weren't the factor, but that it did, indeed, have partly to do with intelligence, partly to do with temperament.
I just remember those rare times when I did 'click' with someone. Have you had those times? What kind of people were they? For me, they were of similar intellectual ability and similar temperament. Try to seek out those people who are safe and of similar mind/soul as you. I've found that helped. The hardest part about that is...they seem to be more rare than I would like.
Nothing wrong with seeking after someone with like mind/soul. Narcissistic you are NOT.
