    It's Cool.......

    There's really no story for this but...... Even though I feel I'm out of place, and most likely I am, I love it. I don't like being like everyone anyway. They can except me for me, or not.

    I think for the majority of my life I've felt a

    little different and out of place. People who know me well have told me I'm a different sort of person, but they don't mean that to be a bad thing. I think people often like that I am different, and even if I seem kind of odd my kindness helps me make friends. Probably what...

    Black Sheep In Life?

    I've felt left out and out of place most of my life. Maybe I'm different. Maybe I'm singled out. Maybe there is something wrong with me. Maybe I'm not wanted. I never did know!

    Sometimes I Think I've Felt This Way......

      Since I was born. At the very least as long as I could remember. Even with family, other than my momma, I always seem to be the 'freak'. Most of my family are very "put together". It's almost like nothing at all can get to them. I am so emotional that it sometimes borders on...

    Weigh the risk versus reward of being in servitude to your own mind and the most obscure thought. Is it a blessing or a curse? Are you victimized or a beneficiary? Like beauty, it is in the eye of the beholder...or in this case the bearer of the thought(s). Anxiously you...

    Childhood rejection is very dangerous

    and we people need to wake up and not let it define our character. If we lack intimacy and open closeness in the relationship with our parents (if we have any!),we will grow up with craving for love and acceptance that we will in vain try to feed or hide throughout our whole...

    Wherever I go, whoever I'm with, I'm always the odd one out. People look at my friends, then they look at me, and wonder, "Where did she come from?"It's not that I don't have anything in common with my friends, it's just that there are some things that I just cannot relate to...
