    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...

    I have always known I am a forgettable person.

    I have always been unwanted and have always felt unloved. I'd I die tonight I will be forgotten in a very few days. Not many will miss me because no one does now when I am alive. Sometimes I just wish it was over. There's is no place for me.

    Not gonna lie. I'm out of place.

    A 15 year old girl who doesn't wear makeup, who watches cartoons, and doesn't play any sports, instead, plays instruments. Just gonna be myself.

    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.

    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...

    Black Sheep In The Flock

    Whether it’s with my family or with my friends, I always seem to be the “odd-one-out”. The way my family perceives things and how I feel about them are completely different and if I say one thing to my friends, they say the opposite. It’s not that I don...

    -Odd Man Out-

    Growing up I've always felt out of place. I guess you could say I was a loner who enjoyed his personal space from the others. I wasn't like the other kids growing up, I always felt better being alone than with others for some odd reason. That doesn't mean I don't like company or...

    Always

    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...

    Being an adopted kid I have never felt in place.

    I really never had any cliques or close friends. There is this fantastic camp that makes me feel at home. It is an adoptee camp where every one has gone through the same troubles. That is the only place I really feel at home. In middle school there was only one other adoptee in...

    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...
