    I Don't Fit

    I don't know what it is. I just don't fit...when I say that I mean that I just can't find anybody who I really enjoy talking to. Everybody has good points I guess, but I haven't met anybody at my high school who is like me. Maybe I'm just being anti-social or something...or just...

    I'm far away from home,

    in a place where I know no one and have nowhere to go. My days go by sitting around home, or going outside just to frustrate myself on the fact that I have nothing to do or no one to see. This city is ripping me to shreds... I have one person here who I'm very close with, but I...

    Falling Away

    Sometimes I just kind of slip away. Not physically, but mentally and emotionally. I fall through the cracks of reality. I can't feel anything, hear anything, say anything. I try so hard to keep focus on the things around me, but I can't. I can feel it in my chest first...

    I'm the person who gets cut off in the middle

    of talking. people usually don't look at me or seem to pay attention to me at all whenever I'm around them. sometimes I feel like my friends only stick around because they feel bad for me. I wish I had one genuine friend in this world

    Anyone else feel like they have interests

    that don't really "fit in"? I'm sitting here listening to smooth jazz, drinking a Natty Light, and reading "The Art of Manliness." That's a weird combo, I'll admit.

    I am unhappy. Not the kind of unhappiness

    that can be fixed by a hug, talking, a good day, a loving relationship. It's a deep unhappiness that is wrapped around my soul; it's the kind of unhappiness you have to accept as something that will never change. I have good days and then I have bad days. Sometimes I forget that...

    Being friends with people younger

    than me, I realized, is so not my thing. Though they are younger, people say that I look even younger than them which put me in a position where they don't take me as seriously as my younger friends which I'm not sure if I should take positively or negatively. When you're older...

    Not Sure About Others..

    I'm never quite sure how to act around people.. whether others need me to be funny, honest, kind, everything at once.. I like being social, but I usually can't relate easily to people and I feel like I always need to act in order to be accepted. I feel as though what comes...

    I've always felt out of place in groups.  Anything that's put together as a group, I feel like everyone has this bond and they are on the same page, then there is me.  I've always been left out growing up.  And people have seemed to pick up on certain stuff over...

    I Feel Like An Oklahoma License Plate On A California Car

    I've had a lot of friends

    who I've stopped seeing because they were untrustworthy. A lot of people are ok with you until you mention that you met a man and went out with him. Then they turn nasty and demean the situation. I did some part time cleaning work for a guy who came into my shop. I was happy...

    I'm an artist who's into bodybuilding, counseling random strangers in this site and writing, just whatever I feel like writing. I'm not a loud person. Just quiet, but if you get close to me I can talk nonstop. Haha. I look at life with a straight-forward perspective in a sense...

    How Do You Feel Alone In A Group Of "Friends"?

    Us all hanging out, but why do I feel like I don't belong? Why am I trying so desperately to get people who are my 'friends' to like me? Why do I feel so awkward... Oh crap. Why did I say that? Do they think I'm weird? Oh, what if they don't invite me out again and talk about me...
