I’m 16 and I’ve always felt out of place in my family. I live with my mom, my dad, and my two sisters. I’m in the middle. My sisters tend to bond more together with each other and don’t want to branch out to me. They have inside jokes together, have the same interests, and just hang out more. I want them to enjoy those things, but with me as well. They don’t like the things I do. I spend most of my time crochet and knitting, reading, and listening to music. They are also very alike. They are both skinny and tall in figure while I’m the exact opposite. They sometimes laugh at me for it. I can never bond with them together; it’s always just one or the other and it lasts for about an hour before they go back to their favorite. They laugh at my interests and hobbies and shut me out because I’m not like them. My parents do the same thing sometimes. They say I don’t act like I should, which is based on race. They say things and add stuff like “Oh, YOU wouldn’t understand.” Everyone in my family thinks I don’t belong in the family, I know it. I’ve tried changing myself, but I always drift back to my real self. It is so hard when you know you’ll never fit in, not even with your family. It makes me so sad. I can’t talk to them about it because they’ll think I’m being emotional or something. I just can’t wait to move out this Fall and never have to think of it again. Advice? I don’t want to never think of them again, but if they keep treating me this way, I’ll never want them around.

Pray pray pray. God is there. I don’t really have any other advice. I’m the different one in my family, too. That’s why I spend so much time alone. But just talk to God; He is there with you.

God made you just the way you were meant to be, don’t try and change that! They love you, they’re your family! Sometimes people say things that they don’t realize really hurts… maybe talk to someone on the outside about it or get someone to talk to them with you! God loves you and hears you, remember to find that you will always fit with Him, and that you are never alone 🙂 praying for you!
