    Oh Well

    Lately I've been getting sick of this place. I think the count down of my days on EP has begun to come to an end. I dislike the new layout and my whole look at EP is beginning to change. Maybe I'm growing up. Also there's no point in posting stuff and getting no comments or...

    One percent of all human beings act primarily

    out of Inventor Instinct. We are born that way. Perhaps the reason why we don't feel like we belong, is because there are so few of us, and we rarely meet others who also act primarily out of Inventor Instinct. We are literally surrounded by billions of people who do not think...

    Tell Me.

    I can't live like this. I feel terrible every single day and I don't know what to do to make myself feel any better. Honestly, cutting hasn't been much help lately. And I've barely wanted to do it, I'd rather just kill myself. Tell me, how can I live when I feel so numb? When I...

    Walled, Angry, Lost

    I've experienced much drama in my life starting at birth.  This has caused me to be very guarded and distant from people.  In fact, I really don't like people.  I've tried community groups, church, sports teams, dating, college, etc..., but I find it hard to relate...

    Who Am I?

    I have tried for years to understand who I am. I do not belong here, I have known this since I was born, really, quiet literally. I feel as if my soul is constricted in a body that is not fit for it, in a personality that is being forced by someone to obey. My soul is...

    . . .but It's Not Such A Bad Thing

    It's true I don't belong. . .I never really have.  I am loveable and caring and warm.  People trust me very easily and kids naturally love me.  And still there is almost nowhere I belong.  I have belonged to the hearts of men but they couldn't keep me or...

    I've got a lot to say,

    so I guess I'll just start, and finish whenever I finish. None of my memories are special. I don't have memory of anything that was extra special, or exciting or fun. I don't have any memories of anything that was especially horrible, sad or negative. It's kind of like my...

    I'm A Peice To A Different Puzzle

    On a daily basis I get the feeling this is not where I belong. Like a puzzle piece jammed into the wrong space on the wrong puzzle. Awkward and not similar to anyone else. I always try to find things I have in common with other people to try and make the piece fit. but...

    Wrong Side of the Looking Glass

    I have stars for eyes, a wild mind, and a mute tongue.  My brain is diffuse, moving freely between worlds of the conscious and unconscious, of us and gods.  What I say doesn't always make sense and I have begun to feel small in the world, like I don't really belong here...

    My outer family hates me,

    I mean literally they hate me, my cousins and aunts don't talk to me or hug me, they refuse to invite my parents to events just because I might go...it's hard, to pretend it doesn't hurt me, but it does a lot! And now it's getting to the point where my mom is getting mad at me...

    Am I Lost?

    I am home, but I am homesick. Homesick for I don't know what, or where. I cannot think on an average everyday level.  My mind races to places unknown to me. I feel an impending doom or something. I can't tell anyone this because I know there isn't anyone who will...

    Well, a couple of days ago I moved back home

    from uni and I really dont feel like I belong here. I feel so out of place here and any freedom I had at uni has gone. So now I feel more like a prisoner. Doesn't help that this place reminds me of so much and just being here completely drains me. If you've read my previous...

    I think we can see beyond some man-made things.

    e.g. money, countries and marriage and have better lives altogether. I also think it is nice to aim our objectives higher than just having better food, bigger home and more self-interests. There are tons of issues in this world (like world conflict resolution, space exploration...

    People often say that they don't fit in "because of (insert deformity here)", or "because I'm gay", or whatever. And while I do have some quirks of my own, I consider them to be something I should treasure. They are the little details that make people different. However, other...
