I feel alone. Even when I am with those who seem to care about me, I can’t help but feel as if they are on a different level. They seem to all take one step forward together while I’m stumbling a step back. Even if I try to mingle with the people I call friends I can’t help but notice how I stick out and can’t really “fit in.” Then again fitting in isn’t really easy for many. Now that I think about my childhood, and all of my eleven years of school and classmates and people called “friends,” I realized that I’ve always been off. I was always the odd one out. Not by appearance at all, but with the way I just am. It feels like nobody can truly understand me.
