Is being different really a good thing?
I always ask this question, even though I know I can't change my personality and be like everyone else. The reason I ask is because I am always feeling left out and like I don't belong. I always feel like I am not appreciated and people don't care if I exist unless they think they are going to lose me. I really just feel like I don't matter to other people until they want me. People constantly tell me that it is a good thing that i'm different, but that is also why they act funny around me. People say that you become successful from being different, but what is success? I desire to have people around me who I matter to when they don't feel like they might lose me soon and I can be around without feeling like they see me as "weird."
