I think you have confused "eccentric" with "childish."

Unfortunately, it seems there is an effort by a small number of members to be cynical, pessimistic and negative in relation to the content of this thread. People like this exist in all areas of life.
I didn't see alot of positivity in you OP.
They see a positive construct - something that connects and inspires people - and they feel the need to shoot it down or destroy the positivity that it creates.
Whether this is done for selfish reasons such as taking joy in spreading misery and negativity to ease one's soul, or playing the role of contrarian remains to be seen. Either way I do not feel anger or resentment for these people, I feel pity.
Another important point to note is that while some members insist that this thread is evidence that I and others like me are not eccentric because there are apparently so many of us, the truth is that even the number of people viewing this thread is but a minuscule representation of number of the greater population.
Do you feel different? An outcast who doesn't fit in with most other people.
You feel in awe of others that you admire, but you dismiss these feelings when they are directed at yourself
What is your passion? What is your drive? You are not sure of your ambitions or your purpose for being here.
you struggle to define what it is that makes you happy and complete. You do not know, nor do you claim to know. This makes you appear indecisive to the average person and contributes to your feelings of alienation.
you worry about where you see yourself in 10 days.
You don't just worry about the future, you focus on the past and are apprehensive about the present.
You feel like you don't belong, yet you long to be.
