call me stupid ut i am bipolar, schitzoaffective and depressed, and i dont think im treated any different anymore. people who really know and friends if you have any seem to treat me good still. just saying there are good people out there who care and will go the extra mile to make a mental patient feel wanted.

I feel like I don't belong. In fact, I feel very lonely even when I'm surrounded by people. I have those that are my friends. Yet, I still feel alone even with having friends. I don't belong anywhere. I just exist.

I feel this way almost all the time. I feel that people judge me for being anxious, for being soft-spoken, awkward, for having shaking hands (which are caused by my meds). I feel so discouraged and sad about it, like people just see things that I can't help and judge me without knowing me or my heart.

You are not alone!

I often feel like not belonging which is partially caused by my upbringing. Being told from very young: " you're so different" and always being treated like "different" is not much help. It makes me also feel very alone and scared. Not many people understand how it feels though. Sending big hugs your way.

Yes, I do and have all of my life. The words that you have used to describe your situation could have been written by me! Our experiences are so very simular. So you are not alone and it is a very frustrating place to be in life. esp, when no one will tell you why they leave you and you are left guessing! That lack of honest explaination exasperates me to no end! . Geeze, it they would at least tell you then you would have something to work with right!? But, then there are those mean and nasty personalities, that cut you to shreds with negative criticism, using wounding words that only kill and destroy you and are completely lacking love and compassion! This has been my experience anyway. Now after many years of this I have give up on having any meaningful relationships, I am hoping that this is just a temporary phase.

Idk I have mixed feelings about it. I want to belong and be successful as the rest of my friends, but I'm not capable of it due to my illnesses so I have to take a different route in life.

I've always felt like I don't belong. Like I'm from a different planet or more a different Universe. It's a constant stressful feeling. Wish someone would find a cure for all of these kind of things!

It seems like I've felt that way all of my life. I feel like I've done the best I can to be friendly and fit in. It just doesn't happen for me. I'm sure that I could possibly be the cause of it. Now that I'm older, it doesn't bother me as much as it use to.

By the way Stahrgeyzer, it seemed like you went very far back to find a thread and I'm impressed. I think it's nice to see some old threads from time to time.

Yes especially within my family. I'm an outsider.

I grew up feeling that way because my parents never belonged so be default I didn't either anywhere my parents were involved. School was my place but I was quiet mostly because I never answered questions unless I knew that I knew the answer because I didn't want to be like my dad who always said stuff he didn't know anything about & was mostly wrong....I thought that sounded stupid & I sure didn't want to sound stupid.

Got confidence with my degree & my career but kept myself mostly on the outside without ever truly belonging. Maybe because it was what I was used to growing up & what my now ex was like in our marriage.

Fast forward to now.....I am still not a huge social person who gets their identity out of belonging BUT the groups I am involved with & the church I go to make me know that I belong. Seriously it is a different feeling & sometimes I catch myself asking if this is truly real because it is so much different than I have ever experienced before. I realize now that just because things were one way for years in our lives they don't have to continue to be that way. HOWEVER I did need to learn how to connect with people after all those years. We have to put in work to change but also our community has to be condusive to that change making a difference

Iíve felt the dame way that you do. Iíve been bullied & rejected by a lot of people my whole life. My family bullied & rejected me, my husband treated me like nothing I do is good enough, that Iím weird, and even my so called friends seem to not care thar much about me usually. I feel like Iím only neing tolerated at best. I donít even fit in on this forum, ugh.
