I Feel Like An Oklahoma License Plate On A California Car

I dont know why I feel so out of place. I have a mental illness that is hereditary, and unfortunately I think its the hardest one to cure and cope with. I feel out of place when I see normal people all around me, and I have always felt as though I am not living in the correct time period. Its an odd and discomforting feeling.

I feel as though I am not good enough, no matter how hard i try. People must be thinking unimaginable things about me. I know I did my best though, and it never seems good enough. I am so reliant on everyone that I feel I am just a burden.

So what do you do when you find yourself in a place that doesnt feel right? Leaving isnt always an option, so you have to learn to cope. Make yourself more social, sit with the feelings and change your negative thoughts. So much easier said than done, believe me. It takes hard work on your part, lots of dedication and real drive to fix this problem. Ill start working on it if you do!

There is nothing you can do about it. Acceptance will lead your way.

Accept who you are, and try to flourish it. The rest, leave it to your demons.
