From being a little kid to where I am now I've always felt left out. I never fit in a group with other kids and everyone else just seemed normal and that I was the weird one, same scenario growing up with 2 older sisters. I was always the odd one out and felt more by myself.

I get it. I've always been the odd one out. I was always nice but was severely bullied. It gets better, trust me. I have tons of awesome friends now. You will find your nook and find people that resonate with you. Never give up and never again. You are beautiful just the way you are. If you ever need to chat, message me. =]

Well I started out pretty normal but I too am having increasing difficulty in relating to other people. In fact the only friends I can relate to are the handful of friends who have continued to be my friends since the age of six or so! I think partly it has to do with the fact that we ourselves feel that we are weird - which instantly sets us apart. Sometimes we are not so open too and people mistake those who are 'private' (with a big need for privacy) as those who are dishonest and have something to hide. Maybe if you let your guard down a little bit with the right type of people you might be able to fit in better. The thing about a relationship is that it's a two-way street. We can't expect other people to do everything - we must take some responsibility ourselves to make things work. Anyway remember that there is definitely one place you belong - here! There are so many people on this forum who are facing similar issues (including me to some extent). Hope this helps (and makes you feel a little less left out). Good luck!

I honestly thought I would have grown out of it by now, but it only seems to have gotten worse. Though that's probably because I embrace my weirdness whole-heartedly now.

Well at least you can accept it. I'm having trouble doing that even.

No rush, we have our whole lives ahead of us. It'll happen eventually.
