Do you feel out of place?
Posted 3/28/12
I remember feeling like that for a while...
I say...look into why you feel that way. It usually shows you what you want. It's really something that only you can answer yourself.
Now do you really need a copy of yourself to be happy?
I hate doing things by myself...so I do a lot of things by myself to understand why.
People go their entire lives looking for something that they can really connect with. Sounds like your just lonely and want somethijg a bit more intimate...someone who accepts and appreciates you for who you are.

Did I find my answers...yeah...and everything just feels much better. Gotta face your fears to find it. And remember...there are plenty of things in life you can't possibly understand...the sooner you realize that...the more time you can spend happy.

I pay little heed to what others think of me and I do not consider myself to be out of place however others I know would definitely disagree. But who are they to deem what is right or wrong or in how people, such as I, choose to live?

I've never really had that experience as I tend to ahve a wide range of friends and I keep track of them by which groups they fall into, eg. some of my weight lifting friends play games, but on a console where as I don't, we still share a gaming connection but not the same kind, where as my anime/manga friends (a rare group) have no interest in weight lifting.

The biggest difference between us is, from what I gather, you want at least one person that shares most if not all of your interests with whom you can "connect" with on differing levels, at one point I was like that too, but I realised that it's unrealistic to find such a person so I stopped looking and counted my self lucky that I have friends who share some interests in common with me... although the best friends I've found are the ones that share no common interests with me, as they are the ones likely to introduce new ideas.

Interests are an important part of friendship and if they don't share the same ones with you, try taking an interest in what they do and see if they make the same effort for you. If not, they're not true friends.

I like this. Very well worded sentence.

I always felt out of place with my family because of my interest in manga, anime, and anything cultural. I was lucky enough to find friends that shared similar interests with me, but we were viewed as being 'weird' to those around us.

I can relate to your predicament. When I use to go to church there were only two other kids that went to the same school with me. However, I didn't really hang out with them in or out of church and they didn't hang with each other outside the church. One was part of the straight A students, the other was average grading, but popular and I was part of the 'weird' kids. So we never related and didn't speak to each other. I don't even think I remember them talking to each other at church either.

That's the only thing that I can think of when not relating to people, other than at work. I know that two of the girls at work also do things for a con in my hometown, but it isn't part of the anime crowd. I relate to them as writers since that's what they do. Anything other than that and it's like we just met each other.

I don't see your problem, you have friends who share your love of climbing and gaming friends and online friends. You don't need all your friends to share all your interests. In my friendship group i have friends who I can talk about anime with, a friend who I can talk about football (soccer) with, a friend I can talk about music with and friends who share my sense of humour.

Why do you need to talk about games with climbing friends if you have people you can talk about games with. You really shouldn't feel out of place, it's not like your hanging out with people who have completely different interests to you.

this is partially true. but as human beings we must deal with it. Having a social life isn't necessary, but entertaining, and it teaches many life lessons.

Out of place? Not too often. I generally don't fit into most normal social stereotypes, but I do okay. I make a few friends along my lonely journey and to those people, I am not out of place. If I was, I'm sure they'd find room.
