Everything Ellis | I Feel Like an Alien | Extraterrestrial

Posted by Edward Ernest | May 18, 2017 | Everything Ellis | 0 |

Like some of you out there, Ellis has stated the phrase ‘I feel like I’m an Alien.’ We here at Massive Phobia understood what Ellis was saying, but many other of Ellis’ red friends and family couldn’t relate which caused much internal frustration.

So, what does feeling like an alien really mean?

To Ellis, and for many, to feel like an alien is to feel alone or not understood, like you don’t belong in this world. Sometimes you feel like you just don’t fit in anywhere. For Ellis, he’s the red circle while everyone else is a red square.

“It’s like everyone is in a bubble and you’re on the outside of it, looking in at them, observing, not quite able to fit into humanity, or in my case, dotmanity.” – Ellis

Part of what Ellis is feeling can be social anxiety, which is the fear of interaction with other people that brings on self-consciousness, feelings of being negatively judged and evaluated, and, as a result, leads to avoidance. This leads to feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, embarrassment, humiliation, and depression.

If you think you feel more normal when you’re alone, like you’re an alien on your own planet, then you just might have a social anxiety disorder.

Like Ellis, you may be trying to find your place in the world, and sometimes that place is hard to find. Just know that it’s perfectly okay to feel like you do not fit in anywhere. Be easy on yourself if you can and seek help if you feel like you need a professional to listen.

Edward Ernest is pretty much the coolest guy that ever lived.......according to himself. He's one of the founders of Massivephobia.com and has zero respect from any of his colleagues. To the outside world, he's this very nice upstanding citizen, but behind closed doors he's one of the meanest people we know. Yes, he writes nice articles and gives good advice. It might even seem like he cares about you and wants to be your friend. But please, don't be fooled. We've seen him kick a dog a with a broken leg before and have heard him on the phone berating his grandmother for only giving him a $5 birthday gift. Be thankful he's not related to you.
