    I have moved 20 times in 24 years.

    I lived in Europe and America, in the countryside and in big cities. Even when I was a kid I never stayed more than four years anywhere. I feel that I will never be at home anywhere. I live in America now and I was planning to stay here four years, but I've changed my mind and...

    I want to go home. I miss Georgia.

    .. I hate it here. I hate it with a burning passion. I never wanted this. I never ******* wanted any of this. I wanna go home... But I don't have one anymore. So I'm left with nothing. Hollow memories or a life of lies? I shouldn't have to make this choice....

    No Place Feels Like Home

    I don't remember when I last felt like I was anywhere and I was "home". People say, "OK I'm going home now" and home is supposed to be where your heart is and it always seems strange and I get wistful because there is no place, no house (mine or someone else's) not to my parents...

    I Think I May Have Found Myself Now

    I always feel like I don’t belong anywhere, I don’t feel like I get along with anybody. It’s kind of tiring in some way, but kind of interesting. I think the reason why I don’t feel like I belong anywhere is because I don’t quite know who I am yet. I thought I was just...

    so bear with me please. Lately, for no apparent reason, I have just been feeling like I don't belong anywhere. And I ask myself all the time why do I feel this way? Maybe it's because I was adopted when I was a baby. Don't get me wrong, I love my adopted parents more than...

    There's not much else to say; I don't feel like

    I belong. I think that may be due to my general outlook on life, which I have always had so it's not something that will change (at least, not easily). Or perhaps it's due to the fact I don't want to be here.
