Red face Complete Oposites - September 9th 2009, 04:15 PM

Me and My best friend C (she's Albino)
She is a awesome person we are more or less the same she is just great =D

We we're talking yesterday as she was down and she was like I'm sick of being Albino etc I never seem to fit in to society. Just at that moment I realized that we are oposites.

C is the typer of person who physically and (she said this herself) On the out side, she can't fit in...Yet on the inside, once you break down the wall of shyness which isn't that hard she is the best person to know in the world.

As for me Physically, I have nothing wrong with me *touchwood* however Inside, I am not the average teenager I find it hard to talk to people on topic's they like, I love politics and things like that nobody else cares or likes. I have problems letting things go which I've been trying to do for a lot of my life.

C she can let go and just simply say *screw it what happens happens* She just hates her outside, I hate my inside

I hope I'm not offending anyone its just an amazing contrast. I think I'm jelous of her. Its just everybody likes her or notice's her no-one notices me. ha-ha

What should I do?

Sorry if I'm being a burden..

Hi Nina,

Asking for help is never a burden, so don't ever feel bad about it! We're here to help and support you.

Having contrasts with friends can be what makes a friendship so perfect and so interesting. I understand that you both don't like certain aspects of yourselves, but you both have a friend that cares about you and likes you just the way you are. What makes you individual is what makes you unique and noticeable. Just because what makes your friend more physically unique, doesn't change what is special about you.

I think it's normal to be unsure about what to talk about with people who don't like the same things that you like. Sometimes conversations take a while to get into. But that is what it takes to learn more about a person. Try talking about and asking about what they are interested in and then add in some things about what you are interested in too. You don't need to change what you talk about to have a conversation with someone. Just be yourself, and the conversation will come gradually.

Also, try not to feel bad or out of place for liking politics or other things that other teens don't feel 'interested' in right now. I think it is very responsible and grown up to be interested in politics and to keep informed about what is going on. That is something that might take others longer to learn. I think politics is really a topic that is easier to talk about once people get a bit older, unless you are able to find others that have a similar interest in it, like in a debating club (maybe that is something you could check out?).

Right now, I think you should just be yourself. Keep up your friendship with C and do your best to reassure each other that you are perfect just the way you are.

Take care.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
