I've always been an outside. I'm the only one in my family that likes rock and anime. Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong family. But whatever, they don't know what they're missing.

Never. My family has always been tightly knit together.
The most outsider I've been is that I've become an atheist the past year. And almost all my relatives are religious.
That's the biggest degree of outsider I feel like I've been. But still not very much. My family still loves me.

All the time. I have never really fit in with anyone in my family. I'm so different from all of them. When I'm home I keep to myself most of the time. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong family.

Yeah, I don't really get on with my family and have nothing in common with them.

When only four people in my family, four, wishes me a happy birthday but yet my friends, my girlfriend and her family, people at work and even the red cross for god sake all wished me a happy birthday when during all of October 2.

It's the latest example of me being an outsider and also being dead last on the totem pole of my family, all because I'm being myself and not the misrepresenting urban ignorant black person that you're told is the norm by hollywood and the media.

By being an independent person among a family that won't evolve outside of "acting black", it gets frustrating at times. But I've learned to live with it, knowing that the other people in your life accepts you the way you are. So no, I don't see eye to eye with the majority of my family for both racial and social reasons.

I will never introduce my girlfriend to all but my dad, mom, and grandmother. That's it, just them. Sad isn't it?

yes...plenty of times. I just prefer to be alone. When they do invite me over to talk they usually just insult me (such as "why are you always in your room". "do you ever socialize" why this? or that? I find this super annoying . However i do talk to my sister and brother about how is school? or hows it going? that kind of stuff



i totally, agree, im the same way with my family.

Yes. I find my family to be very superficial, and extremely concerned with appearances. My mother oftentimes seemed embarrassed by my personal choice of dress and my reluctance to "be an adult." I have a career, but I have a creative mind and I need my outlets. This is something that my family could never come to terms with. As a result, they focused a lot of their praise on my younger sister, and she was the one they would talk about to their friends. She is very beautiful, and quiet fun to be around, but bragging about your childs popularity with the opposite sex isn't something that sits well with me. It feels cheap, and like you're living vicariously through them.

We had other, larger family problems too, one of which was a murder that I won't discuss in detail on the net, but it was a circumstance that left our family literally torn apart.

To you, the OP, a person whom I sense has similar problems that seem quite inescapable at times I have this to say:

Family can be an important and wonderful thing in your life- but just because you are born to two people, doesn't mean that you will connect with them on an emotional level. You can find other "family" members when you move to this new place of yours, and I hope you make connections that are meaningful and leave you fulfilled and happy. Don't give up on that possibility.

There is a reason why i save money so that i can move far away and start anew where no one knows me, and i can choose who i wanna be instead of who people want me to be
