    I'm a 17 year old female(here at least)

    and I've seen many people post exactly how i feel, not being able to feel a sense of belonging, pretending as hard as we can to be human, some randomly laughing, and others just don't understand feelings... Well, I'm just hoping that someone who feels the same would reply and...

    I'm Lost And Tired...

    Its simple. I do not belong. It hurts to watch people around me destroy everything. The funny thing is that I am not one of those tree hugging people yet it angers me to watch humans hurt their land and their earth and drain it of its resources and following that...i really...

    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.

    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...

    I have spoken before about how I feel like I

    don't belong on this earth, hoping to get a response of others feeling the exact same way. I am so lonely and just wish I could find others like me, and possibly find out who I am in the process. Everyday seems to get worse for me, I don't feel like going anywhere or being...

    Multiple Masks

    I feel like every group I'm in, I wear a different mask. With my family, I'm the little brat who does what she wants, when she wants. To extended family and family friends, I'm the perfect daughter. To my friends, I'm the single one who just makes the third wheel. To guys, 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...

    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...

    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...

    This Is My First Time On Earth

    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...

    I Don't Belong On This Planet And I'm Waiting To Go Home

    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...
