    It's Like This...

    So it's kind of like this - I meet someone as a friend, we get along and everything is great, and then suddenly they drift away. Not to sound like a conceited ******* but I am a nice, giving person that is a good person to talk to, so why the **** do people ignore me? Is it...

    I constantly feel un welcome. New friends, old friends. It;s like people are constantly staring at me, expecting things from me. I can't be who I am and not because it's not good enough.  Pathetic i know. I am afraid to let people know about me, not because they will...

    Excluded Again

    I am in an abusive relationship which I have told a little about to some of my "friends" whom I am in a bookclub with, my daughter plays soccer with, and my older daughter used to be in a "clique" with.  I was reluctant to share b/c I feared they wouldn't...

    I introduce my friends to my sister.

    I get married. My sister is jealous and trash talks me and she and my friends are still single. My friends start to distance themselves from me. Years later they are now my "sisters friends" and no longer include me in pretty much anything. My sister apologized for everything...

    No Idea What I'm Doing Wrong

    No matter what happens, everyone will have something or someone who is more important to them than I am. I always end up getting pushed out and winding up alone, when they get to be with someone else and be (or at least appear to be) happier than when they were around me. I just...

    Brown Skinned

    It took me a long while to figure out why I never fit in, and while it's not the entire answer, I finally recognize that my race has a lot to do with it. It seems to be human nature to exclude other people by the basis of how they look. I know people can try to overcome this...
