To put it simply, I don't feel like I belong here. And by here I mean this level of reality/this world/this life. I don't feel like I belong around humans. I don't feel like one of them. I feel like I'm something else, should be somewhere else, with completely different people. I feel as if I should be someone/somewhere/something else completely. I know exactly who I am according to my family and this world's view of me, but it doesn't feel like "me." I don't know how else to explain it. I just feel unattached to this reality. I'm not depressed, so it's nothing like that. I've had this feeling since I was young, so it's nothing recent that's occurred.
