Does anyone else here think they are somehow special, like the world holds personal meaning for them?
I went through a "I am just like everyone else, I share my fears and hopes with all the seven billion" phase, but now I'm again thinking I am unique.
Technically everybody is a little unique. You have personal experiences, tastes, emotions, etc. that only you have felt. I mean sure, other people have felt sadness but nobody has felt your individual perspective/emotion/whatever of sadness. Generally if you have above average intelligence you're more unique than normal people. It's whatever.
Classic neurotic personality: The belief in a supposed distinction from other people--rampant self-idealization forgoing their actual state of being .
>like you are the protagonist of this world's tale
Because you are, don't let anybody tell you otherwise.
If you are conscious, you are a protagonist, literally by definition.
Why just compare yourself to all the other selves who claim consciousness when the greta overwhelming majority of matter and being is inanimate matter, yet fundamentally of the same building blocks as you.
You are pretty unique whether you think it is significant or not
And yet if we are all the same, why are we left wanting what others have, and vice-versa?
