Growing up, I never felt like I "fit in."
As a kid and teen, I always thought I should have been born into a past generation, should have lived in another town, should have attended a bigger school, should have... well, you get the picture.
As an adult (at least chronologically-speaking), I still feel like I'm on the edge looking in most of the time. I don't mean to imply that I somehow feel superior (or, for that matter, inferior) to others. I just feel... well... different.
Maybe it's just the awareness of my uniqueness. Alternately, maybe what I think is original about me isn't at all and I'm just living in a cloud of self-created illusion.
Have any of you have ever felt like you just couldn't relate to today's world, that you belonged somewhere else but couldn't pinpoint where that place could be?
If you feel like commenting, I'd love to hear your thoughts...
Perhaps we could all get together someday and start an annual Conference of Misfits. Then, we could all feel different together.
