I feel like an oddball that doesn't fit in anywhere
Sometimes I feel like I'm some kind of weirdo or something, some oddball that doesn't fit anywhere. I live in a neighborhood where the kids are always outside running wild, and that's not the kind of parent I am. At church I am around a lot of wealthy and married people. I am not wealthy or married. At my dd's school, she is surrounded by kids that don't care about learning,even in the gifted program, and that's not the way she is or I am. She is always talking about how the kids at school don't behave and get in trouble a lot. My dd is not like that. I would not put up with that. But compared to many parents at church I seem permissive. I just don't seem to fit in anywhere, and I have very few friends that I really feel connected to. Even here on CM I don't feel like I fit in, at least not yet. Anybody else ever feel like that?
