    Forever Doomed

    This is my place.  always outside, never in. always searching, never finding. always hoping, never satisfied. shut out wherever I go. locked out of place after place. shunned. alone. forgotten. existing solely as background decor my purpose is simply as ...

    My stepfather has a kid.

    A boy, I think. Told me when he was drunk. She probably heard. She's sneaky that way. Mom came over and pulled his hair. That made me laugh. He may have hit her. Only reason why that didn't happen was because my aunt and uncle were there. Frankly I didn't care about all of...

    I am a 27 and female

    and I have always been shy, white, and nerdy. I grew up with glasses (still have them), acne, bad coordination, oily hair, and never wear the right thing. I had no friends in seventh grade. I was painfully shy. I don't know why the kids were so mean. I used to starve myself and...

    The Ghost Of Sorrow

    I always feel like no matter where I go, people that I don't know give me that strange "What are you doing here? I don't like you look as they walk by." Even when I try to make conversation by complementing on something the person is wearing, or whatever. They just look at me...

    Watching my friends with a detached interest

    because it's easier to deal with them that way, than trying to fit in like a square block in a round hole.

    Always Watching - An Ear To Listen And A Shoulder To Support

    This is how I learn, by watching others. My place has always been on the outside, looking in. Which is why I'm capable of understanding and accepting so much. I know what it's like to not fit in and be an outcast. The only time I give negativity to others is only after they...

    Don't Really Feel Like I'm A Part Of The World

    I feel like just an observer, studying the world but never really being able to be a part of it. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. On the one hand it's lonely, but on the other hand I don't really want to be a part of something that I so obviously have no place...

    Yep, this is me - Outsider looking in.

    Even in highschool - I really didn't fit anywhere - I wasn't a jock, or a nerd or misfit or preppy. I guess I was more like a butterfly just flitting around and never really finding my niche. You know most are just trying to climb up that social latter and if you're not part of...
