A bit lost - May 1st 2015, 12:43 PM

It might be because I'm sleep deprived but I'm just not happy about my life, everything about it. I want to be who I feel that I am yet at the same time I don't like who that person is and I know it's simply because other people around me won't accept that person.

I know I should be happy with myself and do what makes me happy but I just can't get over this feeling that I... I don't know... don't belong? Like the universe just isn't the place for me. I'm worn out from all the hiding and the trying to get by. I'm tired of feeling shame for who I am. And I'm tired of the people in my life telling me I should be ashamed.


Life is a journey| Every step is a choice you make| Sometimes you'll stumble and fall| Get up, be strong, And set your feet on the road again| Soon you'll be standing tall| Live all you can, and understand| If the world didn't suck, we would all fall off| Whatever goes up, must always come down again| If the world didn't suck, we would all fall off

You should never be ashamed of who you are! Everyone has something that makes them different from the rest of the world. What is it about you that has you so confused?

Its alright if you feel you don't belong, sometimes it takes some searching to find the place and people that really feel like "home"

What makes you think that you need to hide though? if you don't mind me asking.

Hidden11 is right - you should definitely not feel ashamed of who you are.

Do you know where these feelings of not belonging come from or why you aren't happy with the person you are? You mentioned being sleep-deprived and that can absolutely have an effect on how we feel. Best wishes.

My family would cut me off. I'd basically be homeless. My friends as well are against someone like me. People around here aren't very tolerant or accepting.

I know how you feel there. Things won't be like that forever, just have to make it till you have some independence and you can do anything you like at that point!
