    Being The Weird Kid

    Ahh I can't pinpoint what makes me different. I'm just weird. I like being alone. I remember in middle school I grew accustomed to sitting alone and it didn't bother me. I liked it. It gave me time to think. A lot of Holden Caufeild thinking, looking in at the phonies in their...

    I don't know if I was born in the wrong era

    or the in wrong side of the world or in the wrong family. I always managed to become an outsider. I don't like it and I wish to change.

    I am always the odd one out.

    When I'm at school I have a few different groups that include me, but when we're together I feel like I'm the only one they won't talk to. I'm confident, fun, and outgoing, but I feel like people purposely leave me out. Maybe I'm just paranoid. But why would so many people open...

    Outcast

    It started when I was about 14. I got told by many people that I would never amount to nothing. Here I am now 2 years later, in school. I let them get me down so badly that when I would get home I would cry.When I felt this way I would always think will I ever fit in with anybody...

    Yeah that's me. Up until

    now I never felt like I belonged anywhere. Sometimes I still do but I realized now that I have always fit in with myself. I will never fit in with society the way I'd always dreamed and I'm glad. Self acceptance lets me forget everybody else and be happy with just me. :)

    Don't Fit In!

    I guess since a small child I never had a place in the world. Being a step-child at age 2 I was always somebody elses child. Then when my siblings were born I became the baby-sitter. I just wasn't the one that belonged. All through life it seemed I was trying to please the people...

    I've always been a loner.

    I grew up as an only child and both parents worked so I was a latch-key kid. I was alone much of the time. I learned early on how to amuse myself. That carried into school where I was happier in the back of the room by myself and after school where I went off to the woods or...

    Still Feel As If I Don't Fit In, Even When I Might

    I had a lot of social problems and was very poor as a kid. I was the class outcast, and, being a kid, I didn't think about things in terms of later or elsewhere: I didn't just think I was a freak there in that school; I thought I was a freak in terms of the whole human race...

    The Way Things Are

    As a little kid I remember sitting at the edge of the playground watching all of the other kids playing. I remember wondering why I couldn't be like them. As I got older things didn't change much. I still watch the people around me and wonder why I can't be like them.I have never...

    I went to a group who were also fatherless.

    I realised I was part of something more than loneliness of a parent. My father was killed. Some women have fathers who runaway. Although I still feel I don't fit in in this particular way over others, at least my father didn't reject me.

    But it was more than that for me, I knew I didn't fit in. From first grade and someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. My answer was normal. I wanted to be normal when I grew up. So even when I was little I knew I wasn't normal. But I didn't really want to be normal...

    Always Different

    I never felt like I could relate to anyone. I seem to keep distance between myself and everyone else. I sometimes think its because I'm ashamed of who I am inside and if I keep my distance, no one will find out. I long to be "one of the guys", but i've never had long-term...

    Ghetto And White At The Same Time

    Okay so short funny story. When I moved to Chicago everyone was hesitant at first, and no one liked me. They said that I talked "white", but how can you speak a color? I don't talk white, I'm just educated. But when I moved to Naperville, which is the suburbs, they refer to me as...

    I'm Just Me

    I don't fit it. Never have and never will. I like being alone (just not lonely). I can't be put into a particular category so sometimes I feel like I just float around. This isn't necessarily a bad thing because it's easier to judge people once you can fit them into a label. Then...
