    Nothing's Wrong With Me, But Everything Is Wrong With Me

    My older daughter and I seem to have this problem.  There's nothing wrong with us on the outside, but somehow something deep down is wrong with us and we emit some sort of bad vibes.  We're pretty yet unattractive.  Smart yet stupid.  Things we say are taken wrong.  It's...

    Conditioned Early

    As a child, I grew up in an apartment. There were no yards or playmates to go interact with, my childhood was spent around adults and television. I played in solitary, with my own mind to occupy me. It's funny how many things kids get into trouble for, is usually someone elses...

    The Inbetween

    Don't Fit In

    This  group suits me perfectly.It's true, I do not fit in anywhere. I'm different to the other people out there. I don't share the same interests as other people. I don't do the same things as other people. At work I feel like the odd one out sometimes. Maybe it's because I...

    There Really Should Be A Group For Us Irl

    Im 35 now, and have always felt i never quite belonged specifically to anywhere. But I take solace in the fact that people find me interesting, at least for a while. The pain is that people then find me uninteresting later down the road. I'm actually very kind but I don't know...

    It's True.

    I never fit in at school. Even among my friends, I feel like no one "gets" me, with a few exceptions. I definitely don't fit in on the internet, and probably won't fit in here.Here's to not fitting in: ouch! yay!

    I don't know what it is. Maybe it's the fact that I'm quiet and introverted, or because I'm a little different than everyone else, or maybe it's because I never want to let anyone in, but it's starting to really bug me. I was fine with where I stood in life until recently. A co...

    I was told all my life that nerdy is the new cool. Unfortunately, by "nerdy" they mean well-groomed normal people with odd interests and not REAL, eccentric nerds. I wondered why I never fit in despite the fact that I went to a "nerdy" high school. I may never recover.
