Unhappy Odd One Out - November 22nd 2010, 11:11 PM

I'm the youngest of my family, I have four older siblings and then my parents. Whenever we go somewhere, or do something, I'm the one who is left to trail behind. I'm not really like the rest of my family, I am just like them in a few ways, like how all of us are smart alacks, political views, religious views, and the stubbornness that seems to haunt my family. But for our similarities, that's about how far it goes.
Whenever we're out, my parents are always walking ahead of all of us together, my brothers are walking together, and my sisters are walking together. That leaves me to follow behind. I don't fit into their conversations, at times I've even been told to butt out. They're all realistic, and I'm idealistic. I don't listen to the same music, or watch the same movies. I don't read many of the same books, and if I have, I tend to always have such a different opinion about it that they don't want to hear it.
At times when somebody isn't there, that's the only time I do fit in. On vacation this past summer, one of my older sisters was out-of-state on her own vacation, so we went without her. That was the first time that my other sister never told me to go away. That is really the only time that we've acted like friends. It's only when the other one isn't there that my brothers and sisters include me completely.
I know that it might be because I'm the youngest, but the one who is the oldest is the one who includes me the most. He's twice my age! My oldest sister is eleven years older then me, my other sister is six years older then me, and my other brother is three years older then me. I don't that they don't want their little sister hanging around them all that often, but how can I tell them that I wish that I wasn't just forgotten half the time? My siblings are all nice, they are. But I just don't fit in, at all. How can I fit in?

you cant force yourself into fitting in, that just doesnt work im afraid but i know EXACTLY how you feel, it happens to me all the time, but i think you should talk to them and let them know you want to be more involved and let them know its making you sad. goodluck and i hope all goes well
