    I'm A Rarity- Almost Even Unique

    Throughout my whole ******* life someone's been telling me that they've never met a person like me. This is NO JOKE!! I've always seemed to be a rarity in children my age-my mother even called me strange!! My Grandmother said she's never encountered a person like me. Every kid...

    I Was Always A Little Different

    I am not like others.  I am the black sheep of the family.  I am odd and unique because I have a really weird sense of humor.   I am sarcastic, and witty, if I feel comfortable around the person I'm talking to.  I make a fool out of myself all the time, I...

    God It's Hard Writing This!

    It's weird what just happened to me... I joined this experience group all geared up and ready to write my post on why I am not like others... But then I paused and thought, hmm I need some music. Since youtube was open, I started browsing for music.  I quickly found some...

    Definitely Not

    Whenever I sit in class, and the teacher hasn't yet come, I usually don't have much to do, when my friends are around I usually talk a lot. But then, I all of a sudden I just become quiet, and then I don't talk at all. I open my books, start reading. I don't know what it is. It...

    At All

    I am so different from most people that they think I am from another planet sometimes. Literally in some cases. People like to find similarities to bond over, and as a result I have few friends. I am okay with that, I'm kind of a loner anyways.

    Different

    Yes, I am different from others and many people are in real terms. I hated living where I did as a kid. I was different in school not fully adjusting to the boys who thought other wise. I got my butt  kicked as they thought just because Icame from the other side of the...

    Freak Or Unique?

    For as long as I can remember, I have always felt like the odd one out. I've done all of the things I "should" do. I've had a lot of the experiences I "should" have had, but... All the things I "should" have been doing, meant very little to me whilst I was doing them. I went to...

    Tough Questions

    Most of us seem to get by pretty well without asking the really difficult-to-answer questions too often. What is a human being? More impatiently, what am I?  These questions manage to remain at the forefront of my mind for months at a time with only brief emotional...

    I don't see why we should try and live for other people approval. We should live the way we like to live and simply not care what others think. That's how you'll end up happy
