Top Reasons why you feel "invisible" and how to fix it!

o you feel lonely or like no one cares about you? Do you step outside and feel like everyone is looking right through you? Does it seem like the people around you are not listening to you?

Or imagine this. You walk into a building surrounded by people but yet no one seems to notice you are there. People are engaging in conversations with other people but not you. You try to do everything, including speaking up, but nothing works. Everyone just continues to ignore your existence and you are on the outside looking in.  If you have ever felt like this, then you are probably feeling "invisible" Below are the top 5 reasons you may be feeling invisible and how to potentially start solving this problem.

5. You are depressed

 Depression is a real thing. It can make a person feel down in the dumps. But it can also make an individual feel so sad that their view on life completely changes. In fact, depression  can alter your view to the point where you  misinterpret interactions with other people. In other words, you can feel so depressed that you see others as completely ignoring you instead of the truth.

Symptoms of Depression

How to fix this?

First, an individual must recognize the symptoms of depression and be correctly diagnosed from a mental health professional. After they have been properly diagnosed, the individual should seek medical advice on an individualized plan to help them with depression. Usually a medical health professional will prescribe medication and/or advise the person to seek additional counseling.  

4. You have low self-esteem 

Having low self-esteem or not liking yourself can also cloud your thinking.  If a person cannot accept themselves, it can cause them to feel like everyone else views them as not being important. Once this happens it can make the individual feel like they are ignored or invisible in the eyes of everyone else. 


How to Fix this?

  • Tell yourself you are beautiful.
  • Stay away from people who are negative.
  • Stop comparing your life with others.
  • Treat yourself to a special dinner and shopping.
  • Set realistic goals.

3. You have just had a baby

When a woman has a new baby, she goes from thinking about herself to focusing all of her time and attention on the baby. Overnight, her complete existence on this earth seems to change. As a result, self care often takes little to no priority for both the new mother and father. So it is  understandable that with everyone's attention  focused on the new baby, that sometimes the parents can began to feel invisible. 

How to fix this

This is tricky to fix but with careful planning, it is possible to redirect some of the attention going to the new life back to the mother or father. Read the following suggestions below:

  • Don't turn down help from others. 

For some people it may be tempting to turn down help when people offer it. However, it is important to realize that every person needs help at some point in their lives, ESPECIALLY when it involves taking care of children. If someone you trust wants to bring over food, watch the baby or do laundry, let them. Also, never feel ashamed to ask for help. Sometimes the people who are closest to you will not volunteer help simply because they may not realize that you need it. It is important to be open and honest with the people who are closest to you. 

  •  Sleep when the baby is sleeping

Lack of sleep can cause anyone to feel horrible and not like themselves. It is important to feel rested so that you  are the best version of yourself. So when the baby sleeps, take the opportunity to get some extra rest for yourself.

  •  Put on a nice outfit

 Putting something on nice, even if it's a really cute pajama set, can often make you feel special and pretty.  And when you look pretty, you feel pretty.

  •  Exercise 

It's no secret that moving around can help with a person's mental well being. In addition to helping you stay in shape, exercise causes your brain to release ''feel good'' chemicals like endorphins and serotonin that help improve your mood. 

  •  Stay connected with friends 

As tempting as it may be to completely avoid friends when you are feeling bad, it is important that you stay well connected to them. Having or creating a support symptom is vital to recovering from anything. 

  •  Join groups for new mothers/fathers in your area. 

If you feel like you do not have a good support symptom, it is always nice to reach out and find others like yourself.


  • Keep a journal

Keeping a journal can help you stay connected to your feelings. It can provide a safe space to talk things through while reducing anxiety and stress.



  •  Practice meditation

Meditation, even for a few minutes per day can release stress and anxiety. It can bring relaxation and peace while helping improve some medical problems.


  •  Practice positive self talk

 Positive self talk is exactly how it sounds. You deliberately say only positive things to yourself especially when something negative comes to your mind. For example, if you are feeling unhappy, you might say to yourself, " I can be happy." or " I deserve happiness"  

  1. Make a list about what is fantastic about yourself. Keep it in your pocket. Whenever you feel discouraged, take a peek!
  2. Replace the negative thoughts with  positive ones.


  •  Seek Counseling

Never be ashamed to seek professional help, whether it's through a therapist or  a psychiatrist. 



2. You are getting older

For some people, as they age they may not feel as attractive as they did when they were younger. Maybe they have put on weight, the gray hair has started coming in and their body has shifted, causing clothing and other things not to fit as well as they used to. It is not uncommon for certain people to start feeling like no one cares about them or they are being ignored because their outside appearance has changed. 

How to fix this

Unfortunately, this is one of those details that truly cannot be fixed. Everyone gets older and changes. However, you can change the way you view life. Understand your value as a person and recognize  that you are more than what you look like on the outside. Beauty truly does radiate from the inside out.

1. You are hanging out with the wrong people

Surrounding yourself with people who are negative and constantly putting you down can increase your feelings of being invisible. In addition, it can add to your depression and anxiety. 

How to fix this

Start eliminating toxic people in your life. Understand your worth and start prioritizing your feelings and self-worth over negative people. No one deserves to be constantly put down and beat up. 





Bottom line...

There are many reasons why a person can start to feel invisible, including reasons that were not listed above. Regardless of the reason, you are not alone in how you are feeling and there IS help available.
