I Feel Left Out

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 607 People

    Then & Now

    I remember all their smiling faces around me and thinking of how I could not fit in more perfectly.  A few years later I remember all those same faces around me but they all seemed distant and distorted as I realized that I no longer fit in at all.

    I Always Have.

    My whole life I have struggled with feeling left out.  Like, my whole family just left to go someplace.  Nobody told me they were leaving, let alone ask me to go.  My mom has called me twice laughing her *** off about the fun time they were having, riding...

    Left Out Of The Wedding

    So my brother is getting married in June, and I am really excited for him! His fiance is really nice and sweet, and we get along great! Well, the thing is, I wasn't asked to be in the wedding. I really wanted to be a bridesmaid, and it turns out I'm not. I know...

    I really hate it when I'm doing what I can

    for those whom I've called 'friends' and ended up being alone when I really needed someone by my side. I'm fed up of being the second choice where people just come to me when they needed my help even though I swallowed my nervousness and go out my way to make friends. I feel...

    The Monster In the Closet

     As long as I can remember, I've always been left out. My elementary years were a living nightmare. I was the new kid, like that wasn't already bad enough. I was sent to a Catholic school where I had to be dressed in uniform and be stuck with a bunch of snobby rich kids. I...

    I take gymnastics. I am one of the youngest in

    My Best Friend's Boyfriend.

    I can finally be honest about this ! Hooray ! Is it wrong to feel left out because your best friend got a boyfriend ? It feels completely wrong and selfish, but I can't help it. I mean, it doesn't mean I'm not happy for her. I'm happy for her, I truly am, but all she does is talk...

    Disconnected

    My greatest desire is also my greatest fear-being left alone. I am an introvert for as long as i can remember, i'm content being by myself at home and watching movies. What i can't stand is not being around people that i can talk to besides a classmate or two or my mom. I don't...

    where everyone can sit and eat. Everyone is sitting at their own table with their friends and I just kind of walk around by myself.

    My shyness stops me going up to people and starting a conversation with them.. but it also stops people coming to me because they know I won't say much and it will be pointless. It's just awkward when people try and speak to me.. I don't mean to be that way but I can't help it...

    The Riceball In The Basket Of Fruit

    Everyday people make it more clear to me that I'm a nobody. I'm no one special. I'm no one worth associating with. I'm no one fun to be around. I'm too this or I'm too that. I'm never good enough somehow. I'm very quiet, shy and nice. So just because I'm not outgoing and happy...

    I Don't Know What's Going On...and I Hate It

    If someone cares about you. they could at least tell you whats happening in their life. Take a few minutes to get on the computer and tell you whats happening or upsetting them. But, all I get is silence. That is disrespectful to me and makes me feel used and misled.
