Have you ever just wanted to disappear? Or become invisible so no one sees you?? Not just being invisible, but sometimes feeling invisible around a certain individual or a crowd of people you know. You’re there and yet no one notices you. To be invisible and to feel invisible are two different things.
To be invisible is to actually be invisible., Like the invisible man. Someone is there, but you don’t actually see it. To feel invisible is a feeling of feeling left out, not belonging, and being ignore. I’m sure a lot us has these feelings. These feelings also leads to loneliness, self doubt, and feeling like you’re not important to anyone. This is not a good place to be for any one!
Because lately, I’ve become invisible. So I’m going to make it a goal to acknowledge every one I come across, even those whom I feel invisible with. Give them a big “Hello.”
Last night I had a dream that I had invisible powers. I had the powers to become invisible whenever I wanted to. In my dream, I was being chased. I don’t remember exactly what was chasing me. But I do remember stopping and telling myself, that I wanted to be invisible, and stay invisible. I closed my eyes tight and focused really hard, trying hard to not make any move. All of a sudden, no one could see me. I was invisible! I strolled around the little city I was in; only revealing myself to those I felt was worthy enough to see me.
To me, in that final moment of fear, I felt relief! I felt safe. No one could see me. I felt camouflage to the things that I didn’t want to see me. I’ve had similar dreams like this before.
Maybe I’ve become too comfortable… maybe I’ve accepted that certain people will treat you like you are invisible. And maybe it’s up to me to make a stance to no more being or feeling invisible!
