    -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...

    Since joining this civilian life yes.

    I feel out of place and feel as though I have nothing to offer. I'm just too nice per say (used n abused). Civilians are mean.

    Yeah...

    Well I live in this little town in Wisconsin and for some reason I've never felt like I belong here. It's small, the people here are all the same, and nothing exciting ever happens here. Idk if it has something to do with the fact that I was born in Toronto, Canada, but I think...

    I grew up on a farm with a dysfunctional family

    where I found enjoyment in the woods. I had few friends and ran away once. I learned in 09 that I have aspergers, explaining my awkwardness and lack of understandings in relationships. Soon after I moved out my angered home and on my own. I never been happier. I honestly doubt...

    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...

    Growing Up

    Growing up I always felt out of place. I never really felt included or as if I belonged with my peers.Class and family history were a huge influence on that.My family was poor, my clothes were mainly used, we lived in an apartment,  my glasses were very geeky and thick,  and...

    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 have always lived my own life

    and by my rules. I have never found my place and therefor have created my own...I just don't fit in because I buck the trend and just go with the flow. I don't adhere to any stereotype and would honestly be mortified if I did. I fit in best by not fitting in.

    I Fit In, At Least On The Surface Anyway

    In high school I fit in completely. Because I'm pretty, witty and good at sport. But on the inside I know I'm different. My perception of people is cynical and skewed.i feel like I'm from another time, somewhere in the future, looking reflectively back upon the human race...

    What Thoughts Become...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    So much so I used to ask my parents regularly

    if I was adopted. I never looked like them really, never had the same behaviour traits, was always just that little bit more sensitive, and a little more left field than the rest. Turns out I'm 100% their's alright - it just took most of my life to realise it.
