    As a kid I entertained the idea

    that I was adopted because I felt nothing like my parents (mentally/emotionally at least.) I actually wished that I was adopted, it meant not being related to them. But I'm a carbon copy of my dad. Look exactly like him. So that dream was crushed very quickly.

    I just can't take it anymore.

    I'm the one that ends up in tears, quietly when I'm in bed. Screw it all.

    I'm the black sheep. I've said

    that before and people don't believe me but it's the truth. when I was a little girl, I would tell them that they adopted me from a gorilla family in China. (looking back I think, that's how different I felt as a kid. so different that I couldn't have been from a human family...

    I was at my Uncles house

    for Thanksgiving. It was just a sad reminder of how awkward I am with my uncle, aunt and cousins. I only see them once or twice a year so me being a shy introvert doesn't help when it comes time to see them. I'm not comfortable around them at all since I barely see them. I wish...

    As far as I remember I felt like I didn't

    belong in my family. Not because I didn't feel loved by them, I don't really know why. When I was young like 4,5,6 I remember my nickname sometimes from my mom, was "the girl from the wildness". She said she found me in a hollow log and had been raised by wolves as a baby lol...

    I'm a total oddball in my family

    as others would call it, a black sheep. It took a few years but I've learned to love it and just do what makes me happy. Most of my relatives gossip and have the tendency to be quite nosy while I'm the opposite. I have always known that I didn't fit in and I felt rejected/ left...

    Many say that children go through phases,

    one of them being the feeling of isolation and misunderstanding between them and their parents. Often times these children think this way to be rebellious. I'm different. I feel no connection or love for my family. They give me everything I need to be successful, but I still...

    I don't talk to my family anymore.

    Ever since I got married, my family has hurt me and my wife. On the flip side, my wife's family have treated us like gold. Earlier this year, I wrote a letter to my mom, expressing my pain and displeasure. Despite her saying I would get a reply, I never received one. I do not...

    I am so different than the rest of my family.

    If my family knew how I really looked at everything and believe in, than they would probably be very surprised. They would most likely hate me if they knew any of that. My family tends to argue a lot. But then at other times they are calm. I don't understand it. That's one of...
