Why do I feel special?
    #2973726 - 08/06/04 11:08 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Ok first off no I do not feel "special" in the interpretation of retarded. For some reason I feel that I am special, and i donno, why do i feel special? Is it because I am in control of me or because i am delusional? Either way why do some people not feel special and feel they are the average joe. Why do some people dislike people who feel they are special even when that person can do so much for them? I believe it is because i have no siblings and had a uniform childhood with a very loving family. I truly believe that if everybody had an upbringing with a good loving family the world would have fewer problems.

It is most certainly a good thing that you feel special because you are, we all are. You've got to be able to love yourself, you are the centre of the universe because everything around you is what you percieve - it is from your own individual perspective. Treasure yourself.

Why don't you tell us why you are so special? It's been my experience that everyone feels special, myself included. Your handle tells me that you are a lover of humanity, go ahead; Brag. Tell us why you are so special.

We are all special. Some of us, however, are especially attuned to this fact. That is what makes us special, our self awareness. People who see themselves as something less tend to feel threatened by those who think of themselves as something more.

I believe all humans do feel special.

The best cure to this is an experience which brings about humility

I think everybody feels special in numerous ways at times.

Everybody is special on the inside. Not many people express and demonstrate their specialty though..

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

:cheers:

you are a unique being having yourself an unique experience on this unique planet.  you're aware, and are aware that you're aware, and it doesn't get any better or special than that.  :laugh:

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

You feel that you are special because you cannot possibly have any direct knowledge of any other person's mental state and thus will always wonder somewhere in the back of your mind if everyone else is a robot

I used to suffer from that quite seriously. Wow, I thought it was just me :shiftyeyes:

Seriously, that describes the everyday thought of my 10 year old self very well. For some reason I outgrew it though, it might've been the drugs

You are special in your own unique way. Just don't let it get to your head and feed your ego. Everyone has their own skills which set them apart. I am a skilled guitarist and songwriter, but that's only because of years of practice, and the only reason I managed to practice so much is because it's what I love to do. I also have a gift of creativity, but I think of it as just that--a gift. Not something I'm responsible for. It's something I just happened to be lucky enough to be born with, and I feel a responsibility to put it to use. For me, it's like the music is flowing through me, so there's no reason for me to get all egotistical about it.
