Sometimes I feel invisible to everyone around me. In return I’ve become this super supportive doormat to everyone else so they don’t feel invisible and I’m genuinely happy for people but I’m externally emotionally numb and internally screaming for help! But I’m invisible.
I tend to feel like I have no one in my corner rooting for me. I’ve been an academically proficient all my life and it’s just expected of me. Now, I’m in university and being so academically inclined has revoked my “I’m tired” card from my family.
When I say I’m mentally drained or just tired in general; I get the response of “you’re smart” as if I just admitted in dumb. But I’ve been invisible to them so long even with those simple words I’m not being heard. I’m invisible.
