    Baaah Baaah Black Sheep...

    I like to pretend that I love being this rebel...but in all actuality it really hurts deep down inside not to fit into my family...those whom I love.  Now, I am not willing to sacrifice my passions, my values, and my beliefs just to fit in with them.  I do love them...

    I like to visual my family during outdoor

    activities as continuos streaks of rainbows that doesn't stop while I'm probably the one always staring at them from afar.

    I'm adopted and the only black person in my

    family. But that's not why I don't fit in. I just don't feel like I can talk to my family or get along with them. Even my mom said that. Ouch? But whatever. I'll move out one day and only show up for holidays and birthdays. But having no family support hurts a lot

    I'm the black sheep of the family,

    but apart from that no one likes me, they only use me for their benefits, even if I try, I'm completely different in all ways. It almost like I was born in another family and was sent here.

    I have recently come to the conclusion

    that I don't fit anywhere. It's strange to think that but I just don't. I am the youngest of seven kids, I look different to all my siblings everyone is a brunette and I'm a redhead. Out of my siblings I guess you could call me the funny one as non of them have a sense of humour...

    Hello, I Am The Rainbow Sheep Of My Family.

    God there's so much to say about these treacherous people. First of all, I'm sweet. They're not. They're agressive and hurtful. Second of all, I'm friendly. My family are the opposite of that, they are cold. It takes years to be their friend. It takes a lot to even stay in this...

    Not Fitting In

    Ok, I totally don't fit in with my family. But, for the most part, it is more amusing than anything. My parents and brother are baffled, and have no idea where I came from. My tastes, opinions, "strange behavior", etc. AS IF their behavior is not strange! Most...

    I am a lesbian. I am depressed.

    My mother says that people with depression are stuck on worldly things and possessions. Just by not comparing themselves to others and being more thankful for what they have, depression could be cured. My dad says that gays are sinners. They are actively choosing to sin...

    I Tried To Fit In. Lol

    I am considered to be a "freaky goth girl" by most of my family because I wear a lot of black (which is stupid...I wear a lot of neon colors and such as well). Perhaps it is also because of my hair and nails, too. My friends, mom, and brother understand that I am not gothic...

    I don't feel like I fit in anymore!

    ! They're all talking at the table. Whenever I try to talk, I get pushed aside. And if I don't speak, then I just sit there in silence because no one will talk to me. :/ I have recently gotten step sisters, a step brother, and a step dad. But I understand that I can't have...

    I love my family more

    than life itself. Really I do. But my moms side is very closed minded. They come across as racist. I believe that color is just that. I doesn't impact my opinions of a person in any way. I love people for who they are, not the pigment of their skin. One time I asked my mother if...

    For as long as I can remember I have been the black sheep of my family. I have always been drawn to outside cultures, always felt the need for a "real" family that would accept me. I have always been into the exact opposite of what my family liked. I have been attracted to ethnic...
