Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong? That’s the way I always felt, especially during my early high school years. While other kids seemed to have no trouble making friends and fitting in, I always felt on the outside.

My interests were different to other people’s, and the things I liked to do, the music I liked to listen to and the stuff I liked to talk about seemed to go way over their heads.

Even though I may have looked like everyone else on the outside, I knew that I wasn’t the same. I felt like I was judged by other teenagers for being different. I always wished I could find friends who understood what I was going through.
