I Belong Somewhere Else

For those who know they're out of place 244 People

    Anywhere But Here.

    Not in this life, not like this. All the stress and pain is too much. Alone in it really, as I try to cope.   Somewhere else, there may be life waiting for me, but I don't know if I will ever, ever find it.

    Out of Place

    I posted a version of this in another group but it belongs here more... I 've always felt different than those around me, like I didn't fit in. Mostly everyone thought I was just shy or introverted...they were all wrong. I've never opened up to anyone about this because...

    Always, i feel the wind calling me,

    tugging me somewhere...but i do not know where that place could be. Sometimes a voice or an image will flash in my head or a dream...and it brings the sense of "home". It is familiar, yet completely strange to me. Where is this place i belong?

    I live on east coast of the U.

    S near a major city. The sheer volume of people that manage to live in a state that's only about 9,000 square miles is insane. People living on top of each other like animals in cages. Traffic on every road. Everyone in a rush to go no where. No one smiles, no one is happy. I...

    All The Hemispheres

    Leave the familiar for a while. Let your senses and bodies stretch out Like a welcomed season Onto the meadow and shores and hills.   Open up to the Roof. Make a new watermark on your excitement And love.   Like a blooming night flower, Bestow your...

    Anywhere But Here, But I'd Prefer Aisa..

    I'll be completely honest, I hate the work I do and the town I'm in. In a family of knuckle-draggers, I think I'm the only one standing erect with higher brain functions intact. I love my family don't get me wrong, but I think they are total idiots. Out of parents and four...

    I feel like I should have been born somewhere else: another planet.... another era.... another century.... another realm........ I don't fit in anywhere, never have & know I never will. I'm so unlike anyone I know or will ever know. So many things about me are just so...odd...

    I am sure that if I do belong somewhere, it isn't here. I don't know where it is....I don't know if I will ever find it....but wherever it is there had better be a lot of cats!

    I've never been to Sweden. I don't know what it's like there. I don't know if I would fit in. I don't know anyone from there. Why do I feel like my purpose in life is to live there? It makes no sense, but I can't help it. I need to go to Sweden.

    Anywhere, But Here

    I never felt like Belgium was my country. Yes, I was born and raised there. Often, I went away to France for a week, but usually I was always in Belgium. I never felt safe though, or as if I was with 'my people'. I felt like a stranger, not like a black sheep, but just an odd...

    Place - that is the key object.

    Not to have one or to know yours is a most frustrating thing. I will be finding a new one soon. I must, I need to and I will.
