mudpuppy and BriBear: I can relate!! I have a group of friends and still sometimes I feel as though I'm alone and ignored.

 

cookies...: I'm sorry, I know it hurts. I've had all my friends do that to me at some stage. It sucks!

BE PROUD!!!! I stick out like a sore thumb, and I like it that way, because I can be myself and the friends that stick out with me are true blue friends. :)

It's alright not fitting in. People don't think you're weird, maybe just curious. Just make sure you're friendly and talk to people.

That's it Zavery_!  Everybody just keep your head up - sometimes the people who are "excluding" you don't even know they are doing it, so don't let it hurt you!

I never thought of that. So true!

Yeah I sorta learned that one the hard way.  I thought my friend was acting like she was too good for me, and so our friendship kind of fell apart and turned bitter.  When I got up the guts to ask her why she had been ignoring me, she said she was sorry - she'd thought things were all good and Joseph and I were "with her".  Do I believe her? No.  But the fact she was willing to lie (or even if it was the truth) to save me the pain might have changed things, if I had asked before the damage was so far along.  Oh well, you live and learn. :)

I agree with healing angel. I have never fit in, i dress like everyone else but i dont keep my opinions to myself. People dont like me and i say "Sucks for you" your friends shouldnt look down on you for being original. Mine joke about it but ar eenver mean

Don't be afraid to be YOU! Being different is amazing. Yes, it sucks. Trust me, I know. But it's also amazing. While the populars and the 'normals' are out there trying to change every week to fit in with the latest trends, we're makin' somethin' of ourselves. You just gotta be true to you. If your friends don't respect that, then maybe they're not truly your friends. Know what I mean?

yeah.... well i tried to fit in, and it kind of failed. you're always gonna not be liked by someone so just be friends with people that are really friends. I also have a group of friends that I hang out with at school and I feel like such a loner.

It's always okay to stand out. And I don't really think there's actually a weird and a normal. While some people think you're weird, there are friends that consider you as normal to them. I guess it's like beauty, in the eye of the beholder.

 

Oh, and, by the way, I STAND OUT!!!!!
