*without trying to appear self absorbed*
I found that it was necessary for me to register and post a reply to this thread. Over the past week or so I have been searching for an answer.. to
what, I don't know; This past night I spent many hours poring over the information and thoughts of the ATS community, when i stumbled upon this
I am 23 years old, I was able to read before kindergarten (mainly due to the fact my sister taught me). Throughout my childhood and youth I was
different, I also moved quite often, so I was never able to fit in. I was always socially awkward, but that wasn't my choice, as I always had a good
deal of friends..but I was just plain different than the other kids.
I had felt this way throughout high school, and it hadn't caused an issue. I was always good at everything I tried my hand at, so fitting in did not
It was tough finding meaningful connections and friendships with others, I should note that i had not been uprooted during high school, only prior to
I was always very sensitive, taking everything to heart, being deeply affected and hard on myself about every event no matter how minute, that
happened around me.
My parents fought a lot, I have periods of my childhood that i don't recall, I heard from my sister that my mother left for a brief spell and I was
in fact in the care of my sisters.. this i did not remember. My home life was very strenuous and taxing on me emotionally, I am certain that like so
many of you, I too am an empath; You could imagine (and may already know) what kind of feelings that environment fosters. (I love my parents and get
along with them very well, no harm no foul, and they are still together)
One night in my final year of high school i met a friend at a party who was in university, we had many lengthy discussions and he helped explain my
feelings of being out of place by using the term 'indigo child'.
I basically moved out of home, went to college, dropped out after a semester and went back to my hometown, then on a whim i moved across the country
to where i currently reside, this was in october of 2006.
It has been roughly 4 or 5 years since I have heard the term indigo child, but the interesting thing about it is that the more i read from page 1 of
this thread to the 3rd or 4th one i felt in place before the term was used... I felt that maybe i do have a place after all...
What I am getting at, and I know this is a lengthy post, is that this thread has touched me.
I had been listening to my roomates fears of the world to come, and looking back it pained me a great deal.. i just want to tell everyone it will be
I have always been fascinated with our world changing, and now I know that I am here to provide aid to those of us who fear it, and as i continue on
my path, i am thankful for this knowledge.
For what it's worth, I scored 85 on the quiz,
I will give the works that traveller posted up in his prior post a read as well, I am looking forward to it
Happy to have found a place, and look forward to future discussion
Thanks and love to everyone who has so far, imparted wisdom into this thread.
