I Am Different

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 20,084 People

    I grew quite isolated from society,

    not dissimilar to Kimmy Schmidt! I do have a great relationship with my parents, and I've tried to move on with my life, but I've accepted the fact that I will always be different and a bit of an outsider. I've grown up mostly outside of my native country, so I'm viewed as a...

    Anytime I look around I feel like I'm not a

    part of the world. I don't work like others, I barely have any human like emotions. What I'm saying is that I haven't found my place yet, and doubt I'll ever will. Anyone else feels this way? If you do think that you are different than most, then please explain how.

    I feel so sad now... just feel I don't fit in

    this world ... don't feel comfortable around most people, specially on meetings and teas and that kind of stuff, I feel it's just too shallow. I love nature, and babies.. and animals, I feel more connected to them than to actual people. I hate when others just don't respect...

    I am different and have been different

    since my childhood . It's not easy being different and you get jealous of the normal people. It's still hard to deal with after all these years .

    School is just another meeting place

    for all kids my age. And we get an education together. Girls are slutty. Boys are cocky. Some are nerds. Some are shy. I don't match anything. I'm me. Me is different. I like adventure. Like in my previously posted experience, like to regularly run-away. I like walks in the...

    Ever since I can remember,

    I've always felt different than everyone else. It's hard to describe, but I get the feeling you understand. I've always felt more mature than most my age. I guess it's partly because of how fast I had to grow up. I was kind of standoffish during my early teens. I felt like I...

    I am a guy who can actually change

    after everything I, and everyone else I know been through. I can honestly say that my most proud moments make me confused right now since I'm not even sure how I got there once I look back. Even when I fall, I won't make it easy because it only brings you down.

    People are always saying "you can't love someone

    unless you love yourself". However, it seems the only time I can actually love myself is when I love someone else. In your faces! Ha! :p

    As we were sitting in the classroom beside me

    Due to having a radically different genetically

    inherited nature I have always been so different from humans as to practically be a different species. That has been obvious that I have remembered since I was the age of 3.5-years-old or so in the second year of preschool.

    I actually enjoy standing out in a crowd.

    I like to call myself unique and I look at my oddities and quirks as positive character traits. Yes, I have purple red and blue hair and I can see everyone staring but I'll just smile at them and think to myself "I like my hair and that's all that matters" I'm different. And...

    There's nothing wrong with different.

    Different is good. However, if someone says you're different, puts a pause before the word different, and says different in a slightly higher intonation, then there's a problem. They're just not your friend.

    I am the youngest of two,

    but if you met me and my brother at the same time, you would think I am a couple to a few years older than him. I have looked alot older than my age since puberty, so that is a good contributer. It's not just that though. My brother is mentally younger than even me. My brother...

    being different from other people is ok

    because you gain more power then others of the different ways that you are different. Also by being different gives you a lot more courage then before you were maybe normal or who you were before you changed to become different.

    I realise this experience probably isn't

    normally taken in this way, but when I say I am different, I mean to say I am different from who I was. I'm used to gradual changes, and maybe these changes have been happening gradually, only to finally be exposed before me. Sounds a bit erotic. I am in the midst of change...

    How Do I See Myself

    I'm different. In one way I'm there in others I'm so far away. The mind is the 'leader' of the body. The mind decides and sometimes the heart decides. I'm modest, some might say prim and proper. I'm also feminine, adventourous and lovable. The real me is somewhere in between...
