Anyone who tells you that your third eye is opening isn’t “neurotypical” themselves. Anyway, I think we all question why we’re here and what’s “out there.” I think just being able to confront those questions from a reasoned standpoint indicates you are juuuust fine.

Dear Longing to Belong, As a therapist working with high intelligence individuals, I frequently hear the questions you raise in your post. Is it possible you’re struggling with these existential concerns as a feature of the enormous complexity that is palpable with high intelligence?

Sounds to me like Longing to Belong could be experiencing depersonalization or derealization. I think Logotherapy could be a good start to identifying life purpose/drive, which in turn might help with feeling more connected to the world around you. It could also be worth seeking out a therapist who specializes in issues surrounding depersonalization or derealization.
