Puzzle Piece

The most basic human desire is to feel like you belong. -Simon Sinek

A big puzzle. That is how I picture my family. Every person is a different piece and then somehow we all fit together. Except sometimes I feel like my piece doesn’t fit.

There is no denying that I belong to this family, because I am practically a spitting image of my father with my mom’s hair and coloring. Boom, proof they are mine. That physical proof doesn’t lie, but there are so many other things about me that make me feel like the odd man out.

I like love reading. I write to express myself. I am chill. I am fairly quiet unless I feel comfortable. None of them enjoy any of that. I don’t mind being different, but sometimes it is hard not being able to relate to them. This makes being around them (especially all at once) very difficult for me.

There are times when I feel like my piece was accidentally thrown into their box and they don’t know what to do with me. Like I am an outsider trying so hard to fit into the one place I am supposed to belong. They don’t necessarily treat me like I am different or love me any less, but that doesn’t mean I don’t see it anyway.

  1. Weird you posted the quote in the beginning…. I’ve been having the same feeling, but instead about college. I have a small group of friends, but I still feel so alone. No one seems to like making videos or enjoy any of the things I do as deeply as I do…. I feel like I need a change. :\

      • I don’t know…. College just kind of really sucks. I feel like everyone else is having more fun. Or my whole family thinks less of me because I don’t go out partying or do things normal college girls do….??? I just want it all to be over!

      • I second that. College definitely sucks. I can’t wait to be out of college and just out there doing my thing. Your family wants you to party? That’s a first. I went to like three parties and it’s not really my scene, but I thought I would try it out, but my parents would flip and kill me if they ever found out. I wish I knew how to make college better or more fun, but I don’t. The worst part for me is having to see my friends at other schools having the time of their lives while I just try to make it through the day.
        I believe you’ll make it through! Just keep being you (which is terrible advice I know, but really you are wonderful and somebody will see that soon!) 🙂
