Rejected yet again. Hurt, but life goes on.

Is anyone else feeling out of place?

I don't mean in just everyday human society, but I mean among the otherkin groups as well.

I'd really like a discussion on this, so please don't ban me if I say anything too controversial (I've had enough of that today, thanks).

Are there any other otherkin out there who, like myself, are incredibly grounded in this reality, yet still know that they are different? I can't really get into astrael projection, magic, or other things like that, and my dreams say nothing about my previous lives, as far as I can figure out. I'm quite accepting of these things, but I just can't get into them. However, I'm very concerned with other things going on in this realm, and try to incorporate the knowledge of my own differences with the world I interact with.

Does anyone else have this dilemma of not being able to find a place anywhere?</>. Most otherkin that I know online are far too concerned with other planes and their own pasts to really consider the modern world, its effects on our kind, and how we can affect it in turn. I've only met one otherkin in real life (the elf I'm engaged to) who holds a particular interest in politics, government, and the rapid changes taking place in the everyday world. I've also met a few kindred spirits, who are most likely "unawakened" kin themselves, but they too hold a certain amount of skepticism with "floofy stuff," at the same time keep an interest in it and appreciate it, however limited.

I've even created a community for those of us straddling the center of everything (copoh-Conservative Otherkin for the Protection of Oscilatory Humans), but I'm wondering if we're really that uncommon. Please tell me if I'm alone.
