    I feel out of place in every group of people,

    because there is always something that really sets me apart from everyone else and I end up either excluded or we can't relate with each other. Being transgender, autistic, chronically ill, not drinking and not having a family or real life friends makes people see me as an alien...

    I don't know where to start this off,

    but I'll just first say that I can't do anything remarkable. I'm not special. I'm not good at anything. I'm just ordinary. I try so hard to change that, but nothing I do is good enough. I'm slowly starting to rethink all of this. I'm starting lose hope. I'm not seeing a...

    Should I try to fit in with people I don't

    really like or just be my own person? Where I volunteer, the people are nice and quite funny at times but some act really childish at times so as I've got to know them I've become less amused by them. It sometimes feels awkward for me and I think it does for them when I don't...

    Trapped In A College Student's Body...

    I'm a sophomore at a university that is over four hours away from everyone I grew up with. I trapped here too. I have no way home except for four times a year when my family comes to pick me up. Sure, I have some friends here. I mean, I have a couple. I've been pretty antisocial...

    I Don't Get It

    I've always been an outsider looking in... At first I thought it was a phase and then I reached 25 and realized it's gotta be permanent. I like being the one who doesn't fit in because it means I get to learn through other; watching interesting things like body language, facial...

    Lost.

    So it occurred to me whilst I was out today playing frisbee. It hit me like a rock, the realisation. The realisation the I wasn't good at anything. I didn't fit in anywhere, I had no place or niche to call my own. I never did to be honest. I was always the odd one out, the one to...

    Don't Belong Anywhere

    Feeling out of place is one of the worst feelings in the world. It's so sad, and heart breaking to witness and terrible to feel yourself. I hate that feeling of being in the room, there's all the other people, mingling and talking, then there is you- all alone, feeling completely...

    ...and I love it! Because the only thing

    that makes me feel at home is when I am with myself, which is always. So I don't belong anywhere, but I belong with me. I just change the atmosphere wherever I go, to make it a place where I feel comfortable. It allows me to be myself anywhere.

    All My Life Really

    I've really felt as though I fit in with any crowd. I was accepted but never really part of the 'In crowd', in high school or now. A wallflower, someone who was there but not really there. In a way a like being the wallflower. Less pressure. Maybe it's because I was never...

    Why.

    I Never Really Fit In

    All the way back to grade school I have always felt like I dont belong in no matter what group of friends I have had. Even now, at 22, I feel completely the same way. Is it just me, is it all in my head, or do I really not fit in? I have friends but I never feel completely...
