THIS MIGHT SOUND SO CRAZY!

Thanks. I just always wanted to know why people look at me like I was disgusting. I went through abuse as well and I have major troubles in my life. I get scared of life because it's scary for me. When someone is autistic life is hard because they process and deal with things differently
would you consider talking to a therapist that specialises in childhood trauma and autism spectrum disorders?

Life is fucked my mom always tried but many places don't take our insurance although I feel all places for mental health should accept all insuance
yeah, that's really fucked :( do you have anyone you could talk to IRL about this? would you consider going to some universities where students are training to be therapists and could offer free/reduced price sessions?

Oh no my dear, it made be hard to read because your ability to write is abysmal but it was perfectly understandable because the depth and complexity of it is like a middle schooler high on about three joints coming to what they think is an epiphany.

I would suggest rather than holding the pieces of your fragile ego together, you pursue your education further because your intelligence seems middling at best.

Protagonists don't generally stay home and jack off to porn into their pillows and then have nappies after all.

You won't need these mental gymnastics to make you feel better about yourself if you just put the effort in to work on yourself.

Being literally surrounded by kids like you where I live, I'll tell you this if you want to do something protagonist like, improve your speaking and writing ability until you actually sound like a coherent adult and then work on the other areas of knowledge until you're not just another 19 year old simpleton.

Considering what was written I'll be surprised if you're able to comprehend a thing I just said but there it is.

Yikes. Let's be nice to each other.

That scene in "6th day" Arnold Movie when the dying villain gets his stuff taken away by his half-baked clone really left a mark on me as a child.

So much for the value and uniqueness of consciousness.

It's because you're living your own life and you see things through your perspective. So of course, you're gonna be the main character. But just try sitting down on a patio of a coffee shop, and people watch. You might just be able to experience a phenomenon called sonder. It's a realization that each random person you meet or encounter, has their own lives and stories to tell.

I think I kind of get what you mean. Something tells me maturing more and experiencing life will kinda take away from that feeling of not being the "main character" and to take on responsibilities to focus more on yourself.

Ignore me, I'm just a flat side character.
Your not a side flat side character lol. I was in deep depression before and went into a facility for treatment for suicidal thoughts. One of the biggest issues I use to have is feeling like i'm less than others and i'm worthless. Some nights I sit in my room and just thinking and questioning of why does my thoughts and brain feel like it's the only one in the universe. With the main character thing idk I feel it's true but that's something that not many people would believe and life would never know, I'm no god and I doubt i'm meant to do anything useful or have an actual purpose. I just know despite everything i'm lost in my life. I'm not self-centered and don't think i'm a supreme god but there something about me that I don't think life wants me to reveal yet. I know cringy but what if that small impossible chance was something true then what happens next. Either ways i'm still just human and nothing special.

No, I absolutely can comprehend what you're saying and what you mean by it.

Are you aware of solipsism? (It was mentioned by reitasuflow previously, but I want to know if you knew of this philosophy take beforehand)

There's probably more people who understand what you're talking about than you think, but there's a lot less who would believe you though.
