To be honest I've never joined a forum before, I finally decided why not and asked some kin friends I have to show me around.
I've always known I was a kin since I was young, however growing up I ignored that side of myself. Fast forward to high school. I had a group of friends and I started to become more and more relaxed around them. This is also when my kinself started to decide they didn't want to be ignored anymore. As I started to explore that side of myself and learn my so called friends talked about various topics and one day it fell onto otherkin. Lets just say they were not nice to say the less. They would bash them and all sorts. I started to hide myself again. I eventually had to change high schools, not because of them but other reasons, I was able to fully accept myself as being kin. I soon realized I was alienkin, however I find the word xenokin much cooler sounding.
Once I rediscovered myself my chronic depression seemed to be easier to handle and my life just turned a new leaf. I am happier than I have been in years. I hope to make some friends on these forums
Also I can show you what my kinself looks like, they are waving hello:
