I know what you're talking about. At every job I have, I feel like an outsider. I question myself and wonder if it is my fault, and I try to see things from the perspective of other people. It's not that I can't relate to other people, it's that I'm just plain different from most people I work with. I don't fit into the norm. So I conclude that there's really nothing I can do about it. It takes too much energy to try to get people to like me, to be social all the time. It also takes too much energy to wish I was a part of the group, a part of their group, because when I do that I wish I was something I am not. Right now I'm just trying to concentrate on fulfilling myself. I am currently a university student working on my philosophy degree and am an aspiring writer. I just have to remember that these things are parts of who I am, and even if it makes me different from other people, if it sets me apart, I still have to pursue these interest, because if I do not, then I will never be the happy human being I could be. I call these things passions. Passions and values. These are the most important things, I think, to bear in mind in our daily lives.
