    I've always had a really close relationship with animals of all kinds, and am better at communicating with animals than people. I find that I don't fit in with human's at all, and I know this sounds peculiar, but I feel like I should be a different species, a step further than some people feeling they should be a different gender. Only problem is, I was born a human and can't be where and what I am supposed to be.....

    Eugh you sound like one of the otherkin people on tumblr. I mean I'm not gonna **** all over your feelings because that's how you feel but I do think you ought to speak to a therapist about this because it's a bit abnormal.

    tbf to OP many people do connect with animals more than people, hence why animals are used so extensively in therapies etc think therapy dogs in hospitals and how often people with selective mutism or autism can come out of themselves when around an animal. However there is a difference i would argue between a) connecting with an animal (because who wouldn't, they dont judge or think you are a burden or whatever...) b)wanting to be an animal, i would assume a fair few people would want to be an animal cos who wouldn't not want the stresses of this stupid human life and c)actually thinking you are an animal which imho is where the line is drawn and c seems to be what OP is insinuating...

    I think you just need to make more of an effort at forming relationships/friendships with people and practice socialising. You probably just have bad social skills and trouble making friends which is why you feel this way.

    To be fair to OP, we don't actually know what's happened in their life.
    I frequently get periods where I feel completely disconnected from the world, as if I'm just a spectator watching life and its events unfolding. This isn't to do with socialising, a lot of the times when I feel like this socialising makes it a lot, lot worse. I just feel more disconnected, as if I'm in the wrong reality, or as if I'm in a dream. I've read about dissociation, and it's similar to that. Probably a manifestation of some stressful events I dealt with as a kid, and now disconnection is my default coping mechanism.

    We can't judge OP, we don't know his/her story.
