Default Not even sure why I am here

Am I looking for help? I don't think so. Though I was diagnosed with a mental illness.
Honestly, don't understand a lot of things I do. I doubt anyone else would, though I assume that if they think they do then they are just being self centered or something. I refuse to believe that everyone is the same, or has the same opportunities. The world wouldn't be as horrible as it is if so, and we wouldn't all have different cultures and languages and etc.
Regardless, I don't believe in others ideas and opinions.

lol what are you trying to achieve talking like that here. I get what you mean, itís like how people here have similar problems and mental illnesses but none of them are the same, because their environment and other variables are different. But it is quite self absorbed to think that others canít emphatize and understand what youíre going through. I do have some people that have it worse than me though, which sometimes embarasses me a lot even though they say that my struggle is not validated by how significant it is compared to others. But itís not like youíll agree to this though

Not trying to achieve anything. I'm here.
Self absorb? Why? Is it because I don't want empathy? Or is it because people can't truly understand me? It's the truth. No one can completely understand another person. But I can't speak for everyone. But I highly doubt anyone can understand me. For numerous reasons such as experiences, environmental factors, genetics, grammar, and etc. Unless someone can be me for all the years of my life. And I didn't say that I have it worse or anyone does. You made that up, yourself. I could care less about the amount of pain myself has or anyone else. There's nothing I can do about it. I'm not a God.

Welcome to PC.

All of us here have a form of mental illness and joined to get support, help and guidance. There is a common fellowship among us who want to reach out and give support. Like any forum, there may, however, be someone here who expresses themselves differently that you may not care for. But everyone that I know have helped others tremendously including me. All I suggest is that give yourself time, and be patient.

The Games forum is fun and lighthearted as is The Coffeehouse. If having spare time, come and post. Kick back in your seat and chill. It's also a good way of getting to know each other; like here at General Social Chat.

Give yourself time to get to know people. Likewise we'll try and help you. I just want to wish you all the very best.
Sincerely
Velvet

Still don't see how I'm being self absorbed. Like what makes me so special? If anything, they are self centered and absorbed for expecting and obligating others to have empathy and a care for them. Especially if the person aren't able to.
Though I think it all sums down that people are unfavorable of those that can't do anything for them.
