    I feel like, there's no hope,

    one cannot simply be totally free anymore. I feel like, I was born to work my entire life pursuing an illusion. Whenever I buy something i think about how much life that object has taken. That we hadnt solved world hunger, and we will never do so because there's no profit...

    Does it not sound like all beings,

    whether animals or humans are plagued by loneliness. I think they are, isn't it common for most of us to be in company of many yet feel like an outcast. Like mindedness, common interests does that ring a bell. Of course we humans follow the quite natural, social, animal...

    Change Society, Not Yourself

    Sometimes I feel out of place in society, and I'm okay with that. It's less that I feel like I don't belong in society, and more that I feel like several sets of values surrounding me are what don't belong in society. I'd rather help society change to be more accepting of...

    My Protective Nature Arouses This Instinct

    Yes, I do indeed sometimes feel like I do not belong in society.  I say this not out of self-pity - on the contrary - I say this out of a sense of avuncular protectiveness.  You see, I have visited society, and I know something about it.  For example, I...

    I feel like that, like I don't belong here.

    There's no one I relate to, or understands me or have the same interest in things as me. But I suck it up. And push on, and Pray I'll find or come across someone who gets me.

    Do I Have To

    I have always felt different. I don't talk like others do, I don't think like everyone else on the planet, I don't see things the way other people do. I'm always getting in trouble at work for my sense of humor & lack of propriety. I'm tired of being told to be nice, to behave...

    That's Okay. Why do I want to be a part of a

    homogenised lump that can not think or feel as individuals? I forgive those who have been hurt or cajoled into living acceptably. I am not like you and so I am happy to have a few people who accept me. I will never fit in, and that is fine. I am me.

    so out there that there's not a place in society that I can truly be myself without worrying about being judged. I know may people think that, but when you're not apart of the social norms. It's very lonely, confusing, and just plain annoying.

    Pressured By Society

    It drives me crazy, sometimes, the things that modern society finds so important -  looks, status, possessions...and even though you don't want to care, society presses its values on you and measures you by those values every time you step out the door.

    I dislike the fact that we're all "supposed" to

    do good in school and get good jobs if we want to survive. I don't think we're born to just work for ppl we don't even know. I think life's more about sharing experiences with people having fun and living instead of staying home watching tv and wasting ur life working.

    Society Feels So Corrupt.. Why Do People Live Like This?

    Society feels so wrong. Trying so hard to get that good job, so you can have the nice house or the nice car. People let the things they own control them. What is the point of life in our society? To get a job and feel like you have some sort of a purpose? I know some people can...
