I don't feel like I belong, I always feel like the odd one out and when I do feel like I belong it's short-lived and then the pain is so much worse than before. Eventually you think that there's no point to try to fit in; its too painful but you get sucked back in by hope and the basic human need to socialize, and it turns into a cycle of pain and loneliness.

It's ok, everybody feels like they don't belong every now and then. You don't need to fit into a group to feel good about yourself. You are a worthwhile, unique person who deserves to be happy just like everybody else. You are soo much more than a member of a group, you are special on your own and no sense of belonging to a group should take that feeling away from you. I believe your need to feel like you belong suggests that you may feel inadequate about yourself and need a group's acceptance to feel better about yourself. You shouldn't let the way others treat you affect how you feel about yourself. People are always going to have their opinions of whether they feel you are worthy to be a part of their group, but they're just opinions. The most important opinion is the one you have of yourself-you need to develop a positive opinion of yourself that won't be easily swayed by others so you can continue on in life being happy and carefree. You owe it to yourself to love and accept yourself. Once you do that, other people's opinions won't matter anymore.

You should just focus on socialising with people. You don't need to be a part of a group, we as human are more complex than a group defining who we are as people.
