    Is It Possible To Feel So Alone In A Crowded Room?

    I swear it is: I just sit there on a bench on my own while everyone else is in their little groups of friends all laughing, talking and joking around, while I sit there alone wondering what would it feel like. I'm a shy person, and because of this for some reason people seem to...

    Always Liked Being The Outcast

    I didn't really understand it when I was younger since being ignored by everyone seemed normal to me but as I got older I realized that I was the outcast in both my family and my schools. Liking things everyone else didn't. I guess it was all of my experiences growing up. I...

    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.

    Me and all my friends are an outcasts.

    Were the weird ones who get picked on and made fun of. One time in the sixth grade a boy from my school was walking home close to me so i went to go talk to him. He then proceeded to tell me how much of an outcast i was.(in the nicest way possible.) I love him for that because...

    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.

    Outcast

    i am always alone. I try to make friends but i just cant. I ask to play with someone they just say no. I walk through the streets and people just look down on me with cold eyes. I try to talk to someone and if they have their parents near them the parents take them away from me.

    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.

    I'm tired of it. Alienation from my class.

    They treat me like I'm nothing and most of my few "friends" backstab me. In the moments I was able to get away from them, I changed my name and even cut some parts off of it, so I can get a chance to be accepted by the class above and below me. It worked. It's still not the same...
