    Do I Belong?

    The feeling of walking around and noticing the stares. Everyday this happens to me, multiple times a day. At work, on the street, everywhere. Theres always the one person who will point out you insignificant flaws and blow them up so big that you feel so small. People dont get...

    But Where Do I Belong?

    I don't belong here, but I don't belong back "home", so where does that leave me to belong? This place is too small for me, nothing around, back home I left on a bad note, I got into trouble with drugs, things I said I'd never do. So why would I want to go back to some where that...

    I Do Not Know Where

    I have never felt like I belong in any group or even on this planet. I don't know where I belong, if anywhere, but it's definitely not here.

    I Don't Know Where Or If I Belong.

    I don't feel anything. Well, nothing real, at least. I spend a lot of time watching movies and these make me feel, but only while as long as the movie lasts. That's just fake feeling though. I'm feeling that because that's what the director and the writer and the actors want me...

    No Reason

    I've always felt like an outcast in every aspect of society. I've always felt like maybe i wasn't even meant to be born and i really confirmed this notion when i found out that my birth was an unplanned pregnancy that was diagnosed at a 15% of survival in the womb. Now i really...

    Not Here, Not Anywhere.

    I was adopted. I was a mistake. I wasn't wanted. I think that if abortion had been legal at the time I may not have even been born. I think that I wasn't meant to be born. I don't feel connected to anything or anyone. I feel like some kind of disembodied entity stuck in the...

    There's so many times that something could have killed me but I somehow survived. But for what? My life is all pain and misery. I don't understand it at all.

    What I Believe Will inevitably Happen To Me.

    Its not like its a guess or maybe it actually is, but I swear its a deep gut feeling. I strongly believe that one day I'll wake up not so old, not to young. [Probably around 35-40-] and that, will be the end of my life. The end of me, and everything I am. Something, not sure what...

    The problem is, i am a lesbian. But my country is full of homophobias. To be honest, I envy fellow lesbians in other country like USA for example. They are more free, unlike here :( it's reallyyyy hard for me to find a girlfriend here.

    Not My Place

    I don't belong here. I'm not from this time. I don't understand this place, it makes no sense to me. I don't know why I'm here. I never belonged here in the first place. This is not where I belong, it is not my place.
