I Feel Like I Don't Belong On This Earth

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 710 People

    If we are universal travelers ,

    I do believe this is the only earthly place they feel we can stay , My theory as crazy as is sounds. We come from a place with no emotions , bodies, only great minds , is no love just a creation. that's why I sometimes feel so disconnected to be every body else , not nature or...

    Like I'm Not Even Human

    I love creating art... and when people ask me to draw portraits or have people subjects, I always turn it down. But when I tell them I can't do that and they ask why, I always feel this weird pain inside and I know I can't ever tell them the real reason. I can only make this...

    I Love The Forest

    I never felt truly home in this world. Growing up in a city with an unexplained love for trees and the forest, I have longed to move to a countryside. I have never been bullied or segregated from my school mates. But I never fitted in either. I really hate humanity, killing the...

    Reincarnated As A Human?

    I have been thinking about this for quiet some time now, the thought of "Am I an Alien reincarnated as a human?". This thought process started taking place after I spend 1 year reading about the Anunnaki in Zecharia Sitchin's books, which deal with Ancient Astronaut theories. I...

    Here at [school], I am in a place of judgment.

    I am truly reminded of how I am not of this planet, not truly of this race. I do not have strong connections with any beings here; or at least have not experienced a deep connection with any other individual here. It’s as if every time that I am here and that I leave home, I...

    A Mild 2am Rant.

    Perhaps it has always been my over active imagination. I've never sensed that was completely it though. It's just one of those things where you can never win. I don't belong, but I sense that I did once. I'm not religious by any means so spare me that talk, please. I remember...

    I know I don't. I don't know what to do.

    I'm stuck on this earth. I just want it to go away. I've always been too different to have acceptance or love. Every single person has hurt me, used me, bullied me or let me down. Tell me I'm exaggerating? I'm not. This is hundreds of people. I've never had a friend. Only two...

    Out There

    What can I say? I never felt as if I was born here, sure I was born but I always felt like I belonged elsewhere. I don't know how to explain it, as I'm sure most of you guys feel about it. Maybe it's my depression or my weight issue, but deep down I know I'm in the wrong place. I...

    I feel like I am in the wrong world.

    For starters, I'm very aggressive. I am the only female in my karate group and my mood swings have got me into trouble countless times. As well as this, I hate humanity. It seems like humans are the "bourgeoisie" of Planet Earth-they have more privileges than animals and have...

    Please Let Me Know If You Feel The Same

    This may sound crazy to some or normal to others but I feel like I do not belong on this Earth for many reasons. This is not your typical "I have no friends. I get picked on at school' story. This runs much deeper. When I look at the stars I feel at home. I am disappointed in...

    Yeah.

    I think someone else would do better in my place, I feel like I'm just a waste of life. It just seems like I have nothing to offer this world anymore.. no talent, no wisdom, a meaningless friendship; just nothing of value to others. I don't know, I just feel like I...

    No Hometown

    During the course of my 20 years so far, I have never belonged. Up until about 2 years ago, I always had valid excuses but even then I knew something wasn't quite right. When I was a child I grew up in Oregon with an abusive mother and a family that looked the other way, when...

    and I am going to take up this space. Today I am ok to breathe. I know these days are temporary so will embrace it. Today I am beautiful and my soul can light up the room. I can speak and bounce away!

    I have my moments and they tend to assuage me

    when I am mired great oceans of pain, and self loathing.The worse and more hopeless and helpless I feel, the more alienated I am.It makes sense to me but, nevertheless,it totally SUCKS ;( !It is a horrible, agonizing and hollow place to dwell in.

    Why am I here? I'm really not sure how I ended

    up here on earth, as a living being. When I look around everything, the plants, the buildings, the walls etc seem so fake. What is real? I don't know. I feel like I'm just living inside the matrix and this is all just a big game to someone.

    For as long as I can remember, I've always felt homesick no matter where I was. I always knew home wasn't here on Earth. Even as a child I'd watch people, how they interact with each other, examine their features, their behaviors, and I've wondered why I'm so different, why I don...

    To love the world and look upon it in wonder

    everyday and never feel like you belong. That is truly devastating. I feel like that everyday. I feel love for humans but don't feel human, I feel love for myself but don't feel externally complete with the world. This topic almost resonates too much.
