    Confused

    I have a serious boyfriend, two great roommates, and a mom and sister who I am very close to. But still, something is missing. I feel completely unfulfilled, and even if I'm surrounded by friends, I feel as though I don't belong. I feel like I don't have anything attaching me to...

    Do you know that feeling

    where you are surrounded by a sea of people around you and you still feel horribly terribly lonely ? I don’t know if everyone goes through this, I sure hope not but I certainly know how it feels after today. Exams were over and I was in the corridor surrounded by different...

    Should You Have To Try ?

    Everyone wants to belong, but what is belonging? Does the majority 'belong'? Is belonging just one of those things we don't talk about? I think everyone at one times feels left out, but many people don't claim to feeling as isolated and alone as I see myself being. I have...

    Belonging

    I don't know why I feel like I belong in a different time and place.  Am I the only one?  I just can't seem to fit in.  My interest I feel are normal, but I can't find people with the same interest.  Believe me, they are not odd interest.  For...

    I Can Imagine It

    I can just picture the place that I belong. A calm, warm place in the countryside. A small cottage in which my boyfriend and I live. A telephone for me to contact my loved ones. My ideal home.

    If Your Not Beautiful Your Not Worthing Of Love.

    I know that society would not view me or my daughter as beauty queens. We are not eye candy. I don't consider us at the bottom of the ugly tree, but we are certainly not what society would consider pretty or beautiful. Here is a good example, I posted a picture of me and my...

    Walk Alone

    A sense of belonging is something almost every human needs. That is why I amaze my dad when i never cared. I just never cared about belonging. I can walk alone or i can walk with others. Either way it doesn't bother me one bit. Just a desire i have never had, and i have walked...

    Oh Jeez...

    Everyone always tells me I am a nice person and everything, but I refuse to believe them, and instead choose to believe that they are just trying to be nice. All the things I tell myself keep me from really doing what I want to do, but I just don’t see myself as good enough...
