Default Never feel like I fit in

Do you struggle with never feeling like you fit in anywhere or like you are wanted?

Yes, sometimes. Don't always feel like I fit in a PC. Have never found a church I feel comfortable at. Have no close friends (except my husband). My brother, sister and dad live on the other side of the country so I rarely see them. Etc. I think there are others at PC that may feel that way. Perhaps it is a common thing? Or are we just the odd ones out?

All the time, Sisabel. All the time. It's a real issue for me, tbh. Really annoys me. Kind of warps my reality. Bleh.

Well Iím feel very sad that you feel the same way I do. Your posts brought me to tears. I appreciate that we have a shared experience and Iím also very saddened by it.

I think there was a time I felt that way, I told myself lies and eventually trusted the fact I was actually loved and wanted by people I thought didnt like me.

Today I am happy to report I'm actually loved and liked a lot by many people. Honestly I dont seek validation however I intuitively know who has my best interest and happiness in mind. I will never have a sleepless night worrying over what others think of me. I'm forced on what is best for me mentally and emotionally and expect to make enemies along the way .

Because I didn't like who I was I accepted blindly that others felt the same way. How foolish of me to have once thought I was unlovable. I'm so happy I was wrong.

Oh no. Not more sad. I appreciate your kindness very much. But I also feel a deep sense of sadness that you feel the same way I do. Itís hard to live your life feeling unwanted, unworthy and like an outsider. I keep myself very busy because otherwise I have too much time on my hands to think. These days I feel happiest when I can get outside for walks and when I can do my volunteer work. Every thing else feels empty. I have no real family except hubby. I feel I have failed.

No... perhaps I would... but I have left the world behind. So questions regarding whether or not I fit in, or whether I'm wanted, are pretty-much irrelevant to me now.

I used to feel like this that I didn't fit in or belong anywhere,now I seek like minded people and if I find them all well and good and if not then I withdraw and enjoy being solitary,I can wait until I find my people.
