I really enjoy being a member here and in the few months since joining i have read many things i never knew about,but it seems to have made me feel as if with all the things happening in the world that my own life is pretty mundane and boring. I can't see the point in socialising or trying to make a difference as the people i meet in everyday life are just interested in shopping or watching tv. I want to meet people like ats members, interesting people who notice what is going on in the world, people who see the futility in moaning about the weather or who want to do more than visit retail parks at the weekend. I have always felt different to the majority of other people and as the years have gone by i have gradually let all my friendships from school, work etc lapse as i just don't see the point in seeing people that i have nothing in common with. Now i find myself sat at my computer all day usually on ats. I have a feeling of unreality about everything, i wouldn't go out at all if it were not for having to take my dearest companion (Queenie my dog) in life out twice a day. Ihave never known what i'm supposed to do with my life, i sometimes wish that i wasn't such a deep thinker as it has made me question things too much and i have missed out on a lot of what normal people would perceive as fun. I can't see the point in holidays,weddings or having children although i do have one son but now i even feel guilty sometimes for bringing him into this messed up world. I just wondered if anyone else sometimes thinks what's the point. we won't be even remembered in 50 years or less and it's just pot luck that any of us are here anyway.

To simplify a response- Yeah, pretty much, but for me it started before I found ATS.
Our Earth is tiny. I am tiny compared to our Earth. That's pretty dam small.

ATS makes me feel like Im alive
Does Ats make people feel there's no point in day to day living?
