I Am An Outcast

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,038 People

    I am a gothic person,

    it's the lifestyle that has chosen me,not the other way around. I grew up liking what I like,and that made me not with the IN crowd. There are lonely days,I'll admit,and the mainstream is slow albeit stubborn to accept the gothic lifestyle. Am I an "outcast" according to the...

    We are all outcasts, yes?

    Then please let me share my way of dealing with it. Firstly, we all have ways that made us outcasts, so no need to share my story. This is just how I, the San Franciscan outcast live. 1. Keep your head down, but your eyes up. This is how we walk. They think I'm ashamed to be...

    I've always been the outcast,

    the misfit, the "wrong" piece of the puzzle, the pariah, in many ways. In all of that time, I've learned that it's the outcast that eventually leads in discovering new things, and bettering other people.

    ...and Proud Of It!

    I have been one ever since I was a child...but I don't mind that. I love my weirdness. I will never change myself or become someone I am not because I have come to love and embrace who I am. If people have a problem with my personality...they can ******* themselves because I...

    I have always struggled to fit in,

    to find a group of friends, and have spent much of time alone. It is a reality that has often left me depressed and unsatisfied. Being an outcast, left out of society, has not always been fun.

    Don't Want to Be An Incast

    I'm an outcast both offline and online.  I realize there are times when I really do want to connect to people and connect on some level.  But after a time of connecting a bit, I realize that being an outcast isn't a bad thing.  It's my preferred state of...

    I Am Different.

    Everyone has that one thing that makes them special... I don't. I have no talent, no beauty, no brains.. I'm just a mess. I have a disturbed mind.. I'm different.

    I'm the kind of person

    who prefers to stay home and watch movies than go out to a party. Everybody thinks I'm weird because of it and that I don't socialize a lot. I'm also considered a nerd at school. I'm an outcast.

    The sixth grade. What an amazing year.

    I was the most awkward kid in school. I had no friends. I ate lunch alone. I got straight A's. I made the honor roll. But sometimes I hated it so much. At the beginning, I was so scared and nervous. I was 11 at the time, and I was just entering the horrors of puberty. I thought...

    The Group Of Outcasts

    I basically found the cure for being a lonely outcast. I don't have a lot of people I call "friend" at school, so I decided to reach out to people like me. Other outcasts. And let me tell you, it's flipping awesome. When you have people around you who have never criticized you...

    An Outcast Amongst The Outcasts

    That's basically it. I don't even fit in with groups of outcasts. I can stay among them and pretend to blend in, but I do not belong with them. I belong nowhere. I am my own group. My own friend. My own enemy. My own god.
