I Am Not Popular

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,729 People

    I wonder what it's like to be popular,

    you know, how it feels to be tall, dark, drop dead gorgeous - in other words, the winner of a genetic lottery. I'd look in envy some times at the cool kids who made heads turn and who were simply amazing. I wonder what it's like to be able to admire yourself in the mirror or...

    I can't help but to feel sorry

    for all those popular people.... It must be so tiring to be a popular, social butterfly (since on average, most people who become the president of the student council are popular social people, and so they have even more responsibilities to take care of) And the fact that they...

    I'm Not Hated Either

    I'm a quiet kind of girl. I don't socialize too much, I rarely put myself out there in the social arena. But I'm likable. Many even call me a plain jane. I don't wear makeup and I dress comfortably. I'm just me. nO glits, no glamour, I don't keep up with the latest trends, I don...

    Sometimes I get sad that I don't have dozens of

    friends, but then I just have to remind myself that I don't need a lot of people. I'd much rather have a couple REAL friends than tons of fake ones.

    I really don't need to be either.

    Popularity is something I'm definitely not

    familiar with. I was never popular in school, even now, I only have a small handful of friends. I'm not popular amongst my coworkers, nor am I popular on social media, I'm not popular on here either. There are times where I wish I was more popular, times where I envy those who...

    are what popular people call 'rejects'. Popular people are shallow, they don't understand true friendship.

    The idea of having some sort of social "rank"

    in school sickens me. What makes a person, a girl, popular? Her "perfect hair", her massive group of "friends", her makeup, her brand named clothes, the way she can manipulate others into thinking she's popular? I don't get it. I don't mean to stereotype. I really don't. I also...

    I think the whole thing is stupid.

    There are so many labels. Why can't we just take the labels off and learn to accept everyone whatever your background may be. I honestly don't mind not being popular. there is so many things wrong with that idea.

    I am most definitely not by any means popular.

    And after all the years of thinking I want to be. I don't think I would anymore. I'm happy with not having any friends it just leaves me with more time to read or draw or run or think or listen to music or play with beau.

    It's Never Been Something I've Desired

    Now don't get me wrong.  It's not like I'm unpopular.  I've generally always been well liked but I've never been part of the in crowd.  It's never really appealed to me.  In high school, I didn't have a clique.  I didn't really belong to any particular group.  I was just...
