Call a friend...being different is a good thing....there is a saying that goes..."You were born an original...don't die a copy"....then look for friends who are like minded and like the same things as you do....being part of the "in-crowd" means you have to act like them to fit in....but real friends love and accept you for who you are and wouldn't want you to change a thing!!!!

Call a friend...it always helps to talk about it to someone who does love you for who you are, and is probably the same way.

None of the above.

I've spent a lifetime not fitting in. I wasn't one of the cool kids in Highschool - I was the guy who ran a trapline and spent his spare time hunting and fishing. I wasn't the dedicated hell-raiser in my early twenties - I did my drinking at home and rodeo'd on the weekends. I wasn't a Yuppy in my thirties - I drove a truck and worked alternately as a semi-professional gun-fighter for a local tourist trap and as a living history docent for various historic sites in my spare time. And it continues...

Ultimately, I just had to accept it and realize that the reason I don't fit in is because I'm different than everyone else -- Heck, I'm even different from the folks that are like me! I've never been able to fit into any kind of established "mold" and it finally occured to me that it doesn't mean that I'm wrong, just an individual.

I'll admit that not fitting in does get a little lonely at times, but if fitting in means ascribing myself to the norms established by society, then it's a lonliness that I'll embrace!

So don't sweat it too much - Embrace your individuality instead and it'll you'll live better and be happier!

thumbs up cheers

Please don't do what I did...avoid people and be miserable for most of your adulthood.

Go grab life and do whatever it takes to make yourself happy. You are young and your time is now. Best of luck to you!!hug

Well said! I can relate, believe me! I don't "fit in" perfectly in any of my "worlds", but I love my individuality!

As Kermit once sang, "It's not easy being green" frog , referring to it not being easy being different than anyone around you. It's what I sing when I'm having one of those days that it gets to me.

I agree. I'm my own person so I usually find something in common with someone and if I don't then I pick another crowd....cheers

None of the above, other people can't get me down... I am confident enough in myself (not conceited) to know I only have to worry about my life, and I realize people aren't always going to agree with each other.. Antone can can what ever they want to me, I know the true, so what's it matter what someone else says or does...

I think for myself, and do for myself(not selfish) just very independent..

I don't need to get anyone's approval, for any of the decisions I make...cheers

Is not the need to "feel" like one is "fitting in", actually a lack the of "feeling" of self-worth??dunno
