I have never fit in in my own house. Every one act like i am a science experiment. They all look at me like what is she going to do now.Why are you hear? Then my friends come over and it all like i love you. I hate that. It is like if your going to hate me don't make my friends think that you are the best parents ever. So i spend all my time alone. Then just when you think i don't care what they think. That is when they are nice for a day. So your resolve completely shatters. I don't know maybe i am just weird an undeserving of love.

No, always accepted it as natural naturally.

The ordinary never feels strange, only sometimes.

Me and my family are completely different. They chose manual work, and I chose academic work. They are hardcore Christians, and I am an atheist. They are republicans through and through, but I despise the fact that we always have to say "bipartisan". There are very few issues we agree on.

To me, my parents are strangers. I say what they want to hear and I do what they ask, but it is all a lie.

yeah. my family don't let me in, they barricade themseves inside and call it the safe house. they huddle in the corner in a blanket with a tiny tv and one of them goes on what they call "Bad child duty" by looking at me from the door. I just stand outside with my hands in my pockets kicking rocks and carving on the ground. when i turn round they just glare with fright. I've been renounced, but it's actually quite fun out here, sometimes i live with my wolf family and sometimes they are dicks and leave me out of things. PRICKS.

Hmmmmmm.... I'm more quiet and would rather be by myself and the rest are loud and stuff. And they seem to talk and complain about me whenever I make a mistake and whatnot~

What is family but a bunch of blood-related fuckers? They didn't do you any favors by giving birth to you and everyone else. They did what came natural, and I don't see why that's necessarily any reason to feel close to them or grateful. You have nothing in common with them, in my mind - especially not if you see yourself as "your own person."

I'm starting to. Sometimes they won't tell me news. Like family or money problems. Sometimes good news like when my brother earned his driving license. I shall only discover about it by overhearing their conversations a few days later. Then again, I preferred to be alone sometimes so maybe it was just me avoiding them.

We all get along pretty well in my family, if I had to pick someone as being the odd one out it would have to be my mom. My dad, brother, and I are all NTs (has to do with the Myers-Briggs personality types) and my mom is a NF. We are all introverts so that helps too we basically go hang out in our rooms and don't bother each other until dinner time But outside of my family I have always felt and known I was different than most other people (most of the population have SP or SJ personality types).

I'm sorry you are having a hard time with your family, but I think once you are in school and than eventually move out for good things will get better. I really hope that your family will come around one day, but if they don't just remember you will always have friends on CR who love you!

Yep, all the time. I'm what they call the black sheep. I just find being around my family awkward

I usually feel like that. I am the only male in my immediate family so I grew up as the different one. As I grew up, my family needed me less and less until we barely talk anymore. I call my moms sometimes to take her out and show her I love her. My sisters got their own things going, so I try not to interfere if they don't want me around.

To be honest I have are hard time fitting in with anyone not just my family, I mean i can talk to my family but i would rather not as when I was in Highschool the conversation always ends with why don't you go out with your "friends". Well my "friends" if you could call them that idea of fun was to go out and drink Alcohol and Smoke etc. and I really didn't understand the enjoyment of that but even if i said to my family they would just say go anyway...... and if i said no usually my mum would say why are you such a strange kid that isn't how i raised you etc. gotta love Highschool :-/ this problem and also the million others that i suppose i have would probably be why I feel "left out" but to be honest i don't really care anymore.
