I am 16. In high school. I have always for as long as I can remember being extremely sensitive and empathetic. I went through a lot of emotional and behavioral problems as a child. Now I am more "stabilized", however in my mind it is quiet the contrary. I have every material thing someone my age could want... Even a good family and money. For some reason though all my days are these psychological prisons for me. I constantly have problems. I feel like I am going insane everyday. Every solution I look into I fail. Psychologists, psychiatrists, exercise, medication. I never feel fulfilled. And for you Christians.. YES I tried Jesus.. Went to Christian school my early years.. It just made things worse. Now I have a hate for religion. I just feel like theres no solution. I won't try suicide since I feel bad about my parents since they have given so much to me..Even though sometimes thats all I could think about. I am in constant distress. I don't know why I am this way. If it were a psychological cause I think it would have been pinpointed a long time ago. Lately I've been thinking since I got into the whole alternative ATS type of stuff since last year that I might actually have nothing wrong with me and maybe I see more of the wrong things in society. All the war, environmental problems, hatred, consumerism really affects me to a personal level. I get really riled up. I tried to explain that to some people and they just think I'm crazy. Lately I have just tried to do Astral Projection to see if I could meet my "spirit guide" to see if I could get some insight... Hasn't worked. I try meditation. And sometimes I feel things. But I still haven't reached some form of realization. What should I do? Please no rude comments. I'm not doing this to be a whiny teenager. I truly am writing this out despair and desperation... Trust me. A conspiracy forum wouldn't be my first choice for help... But who knows.

Your not special. nothing is wrong with you. Your a teenager, you got so many hormones bouncing around you right now that occasionally you just wanna punch somebody other times you wanna lie down and die.
been there. it sucks. but once again your not special. Your not gifted. Your not talented. You call all your classmates stupid and ignorant. Talk to them you will be surprised that they feel the same about everything like you.
i went through this stage just like everyone else. I didn't meditate. I didn't watch my intake. i lived. i went and had fun. i socialized.
Internet friends are not real friends. I am not saying that the posts above me are wrong. If they help you excellent problem solved. But don't forget that there is a world out there. Go kiss a girl and i promise you all your problems will go away.
in a hectic world we live in the simple things bring us the most pleasure. you only get to be 16 once. don't waste it with this meditation bull crap.(my opinion).
Everyone had these feelings at some point or another. Don't block yourself from the world by thinking your different. Embrace everyday and party like crazy.
