    I've Known This For a Long Time

    It's irritating because there are many people who are somehow wierd or different or eccentric or whatever, but they still manage to find their way in life about like everyone else.  What happened to me that I've always been on the outside of life looking in?  There was...

    It probably sounds incredibly cliche,

    but I actually don't belong anywhere. I used to be capable of blending and fitting in to most crowds, but that simple human ability has dramatically changed through the years. It isn't that I stick out like a sore thumb or anything. I hold my composure and keep my mouth shut in...

    Certainly

    The more I watch, the more I know nothing is for me. I will always be like this, and no one will realize. No one will know me... Do I even know myself? Perhaps better than many can imagine... it is how I know. I can't belong... I feel like I never will. The principal at my...

    I Don't Understand

    I don't understand when I have everyone around me that I know are there for me and many of them support me, but I still have a feeling that I just don't belong here, I am different in pretty much every way from most of my family. Among my friends I feel like they are smarter and...

    Well, it seems, that I want to be settled. To have my own home, to be sure, that it will be my during the rest of my life. There should be bright room for my kid. And a large light kitchen with bookshelves, sofa and a table for all my paper- and computer work. Yes, I almost live...

    Betrayed And Alone

    Again I'm feeling betrayed and alone.  Maybe I'm just being selfish.  Maybe its me.  All my life I have never really felt as if I fit in anywhere.  Not with my friends, not with my family, not at work.  So I ask myself.  Is it mea? It has to be me.  Honestly how can the...

    Homeless

    Don't get me wrong, I do have a roof to sleep under, for which I am grateful. However, it feels like I'm living in a stranger's house. I don't remember ever feeling truly at home anywhere. My childhood was ever-changing: I lived in four different countries during it. I don't...

    The Point ?

    I've lived in 3 different places recently and haven't felt connected or belong anywhere. I'm starting to think I might not belong anywhere which I think I should start accepting. I constantly question why I am here ? There's just no reason. I'm just a burden. Life would improve...

    Always On The Outside Looking In...

    I've always known that I was different. I didn't look, sound, or think like anyone else around me. No matter where I move, who I hang around, who I grow close to... nothing fits. I'm someone with no true place to call home. I may as well belong to the source of the winds that...

    I Just Don't Belong...

    I don't belong....belonging means ownership. I don't want to belong, I just want to be my own property. If one sweet day, someone says they are in love with me, before I say it to them....maybe I'll just believe them.

    Wandering Forever

    I guess we can't all belong after all the world is about balance. I've accepted this path not out of choice or convenience but because it's the only one that beckons and accepts me. Sure it sucks 23/7 but how else is a guy like me supposed to live?

    I Feel Like I Don't Belong Anywhere

    I just don't feel like I belong anywhere. I don't get along with my family, in fact, we've grown apart so much in the recent years that now we don't even talk much. We just live in the same house, that's it. I have friends, but then they're always busy with their own stuff...
