I'm probably going to regret posting this thread but feel like I need to get the weight off my chest.
Feeling insignificant has been an issue I've struggled with throughout my life. In work, in school, in every group I've ever been a member of. It also extends to online forums. For some reason I really feel it on this forum, like if I just left and never came back, hardly anyone would notice. That's a very sobering thought but I have little evidence to believe so otherwise.
Maybe I just haven't found my niche yet. Some forum members seemed to have established their niches and they are known as the "go-to" person in that niche. Some members are known for their insightful relationship advice, some are just sexy and fun, and others can explain the ins and outs of Jungian Cognitive functions like no other. Some just have a natural charisma and others have an edginess to them that makes them stand out. I'm just another low-key INTP.
Compared to other members of similar post count and forum stay, I don't have all that many visitor messages compared to many of you. My blog gets very limited readership, it makes me wonder if its worth the bother of keeping. Other members seem to get more replies to their blog posts. My name isn't referenced very much in threads other than the ones I start. Other people are always getting mentions and thanks.
Other people post photos and people regularly comment on how beautiful or gorgeous they are. No one ever says anything when I post a photo. I'm not near the caliber of attractiveness that many of you are but just once it would be nice to receive a compliment regarding my appearance. I can't help but feel inadequate that there are so many beautiful people on here and there is no way I can ever measure up.
It isn't just this forum where I feel this, but every single forum I've ever participated on. However, I feel it more strongly on here for some reason.
Have other people ever felt the same way on this forum?
