I can relate.
The fact of the matter is that these fringe topics are what interest me and there is NOONE in my life that even come close to having the type of ideas
about reality that I do.
I'm not saying that my friends and family are idiots, incapable of abstract thought. However, ignorance is bliss and they are sheep. Not that they
mean to be, but the majority of society are just that, sheep. They go to work, come home, turn on the devil box, and are fed what it is to be
Even the love of my life sort of looks at me like I'm nuts when I talk about the things that interest me. He says that he doesn't think I'm crazy, but
I can tell that he doesn't usually comprehend the things that I'm talking about and therefore dismisses them.
My family would rather believe that I'm a bi-polar and that I should take a pill that numbs my emotions so I can conform to society and live a "
normal" life. It's easier to write me off as crazy then to consider that I may be an Indigo adult, who coincidentally are often labled as ADHD,
bi-polar, and on the fringes of society. Even though my characteristics fit into that category perfectly.
So I feel your pain, its embarrassing. They would rather us be embarrassed and ashamed of our beliefs than admit that there may be something amiss
with the way they are living, because that's what the majority have been taught to conform to since birth.
If she can't at least accept that you have these interests then she's not the one. She doesn't have to believe what you do, but if she respects you
than she won't belittle you for believing what you do. And if she does, you should kick her butt to the curb, because mutual respect is the main
ingredient in every successful relationship.
We should be proud of the fact that our eyes aren't closed like most people's are.
Personally, if it weren't for sites like this, I would have very little mental stimulation and that used to really suck. I'm so glad I found a bunch
of weirdos, just like me, to share my ideas with and who have open minds.
Ty- hope that helps.
