Sad How do you feel about NOT being otherkin?
I'm pretty new to the otherkin world & don't even have a kintype, but the thought of finding out it's not real is kind of awful. It would kind of mean I have no reason for always being "other" besides there just being something wrong with me.

How do you feel about NOT being otherkin?
If it was definitely proven that otherkin is fake?
If otherkin was still real, but it was proven that you aren't one?

(If anyone's curious what my PFP is, I had a dream I saw mother nature once & she looked like this.)

About the same as NOT being male. I wouldn't know nor have anything to compare it to.

Then I would find other means to explain my...'feelings'.

Again I would look to other explanations for what I think I feel.

I imagine the reaction would be different for someone who attributes their otherness to psychology vs someone who believes they have a non-human soul or were reincarnated.

Hmm..I suppose so. After all that is all we really have to base it on is belief.
How do we tell the difference between the belief of the afore mentioned personal reality and a fact? Is there a way to glean more insight?
