I belong out in the wild. I'm tired of living in the city with all these people around. Not that they bother me or anything, it's just a lot nicer when you don't have people around and you can think about life while sipping a can of coke out on some hill in the mountains. Its so peaceful.

I'm quite content with where I am right now. If it was several years ago, then I've felt like I didn't belong numerous times. When I was a teenager, I dreamed about moving out to another state once I was old enough to live in a place that's isolated from everybody I knew so I could live my hermit life which sounds pretty stupid now. My family and the few friends that I have are all here. I would never want to leave anymore to be honest. This is where I call home.

I did that about 18 years ago, when I moved here to Vancouver/Portland. After about 4 or 5 years I realized I needed a change.... been trying to get a job in Seattle ever since. Not too hard. Almost got one a week ago but they didn't really want to wait for me to move and they didn't want to pay enough to make it worth my while.

It's a bitch switching careers.

This is a problem I hope to never have! But in any case, good luck to you sir.

Well, I'm genderqueer and pansexual.

And all I see in society, and probably unintentionally enforced, is "heteronormativity". I grew up believing that I was weird because I liked both boys and girls, even though my parents raised me with tolerance and acceptance of others. And now I've discovered there are people who feel like me in regards to gender, and it's labeled as a "hormonal imbalance" and/or "just confused". Or, (my favorite) "conforming to a community just to be cool".

I blame society for everything.

I always have that feeling of not belonging. Its gotten worse ever since I lost the person I held dearest to me but I just can't force my self to suffer when I think of everything worse going on in the world. Makes me feel like I have no reason to complain.

To combat my loneliness from time to time, it helps I work in a hospital and study as well, so I have lots of new people to talk to who I don't care if they judge me or not!

I would absolutely love to live in the mountains. The beauty of Mother Nature is something everyone should take time to appreciate!

I'm very sorry for your loss man. I also lost someone very close to me last year and it's not an easy thing to go through whatsoever. And even though there are other huge things going one in the world, you still gotten take some time for yourself and get through what your going through. All of us people make up the world and are very important. Always take some time for you.

Well I don't think your wierd at all! Society is pretty rotten. Life would be so much easier if people would accept everyone and show more respect. Makes me pretty mad. People shouldn't be judged and put down for doin what they feel in their hearts.

Honestly I've decided I'm an Unwanted person in a way. I haven't really found a group of friends to belong to. I hang out with quite a bit of people but only like 1 or 2 I'm close with and I don't chat with them very much though. I guess it's my fault there... Still I don't have a group of friends that I hang out with a lot. Eventually my bonds with people whither away with the sands of time.

Definitely. I think after a while we're just prone to become bored with our everyday life and crave for something even remotely new. I think that's why some people don't mind moving and why some enjoy travelling the world.

I felt that way, mostly because my drug addiction. I ended up moving to sober house in Houston and finally found a place I belong. I am slowly getting better and changing my perspective on life.

Of course, in the nearby future, I hope to move to Nebraska and join my boyfriend who lives there.
