When I first started high school. I haven’t attended a public school before then so it was new and a bit uncomfortable. I was treated fine, I knew a few people before and I was accepted by my friends rather quickly.
Your awesome and we love you!
When I stayed I’m California for a couple weeks It didn’t make me feel bad and everyone there was pretty nice it was just too much city for me.
I always feel like an outsider at family reunions because they are all so weird
That’s relatable, Nate.
My family and I went to New York last year. It was very crowded and no one knew or cared who you were. It’s was a really cool experience.
New York compared to Salmon is a huge change. I would feel very out of place.
When we went on the travel club trip, it was cool but strange because you couldn’t communicate very well and you felt very different from everyone else.
I would have to say whenever I attend the LDS church. I feel awko Taco because everyone stares and tries to convert me into being a “better person.” I can’t name all of the reasons in 10 minutes on why I feel uncomfortable being there.
I def feel awkward there but maybe you should consider being a “better person”
True that but I don’t think I am going to find my nicer self there.
I can agree there’s definitely some mind control going on there
Maybe you should worship the sun instead, like Nate does.
It’s def a lot easier to do than all the bs they have going on
How you feel depends on the situation. In some cases you feel isolated and alone, in others you feel free. In some environment you are treated as if you are a threat to the nonexistent peace that was in place before you arrived and in others you are welcomed with open arms. It really depends on the situation.
Agreed, the situation plays a big part in it
We had a family reunion on my mom's dad's side. We all went to a hotel/theme park kinda thing and stayed for a few days. I felt pretty uncomfortable because I dont know most of that family. Most of them just kinda ignored me until I started getting involved.
I think everybody is like that with a side of the family they don’t see very often.
Meeting new family members can be uncomfortable.
I did the same thing when I met Russ’s family
I felt like an outsider when I first moved here. I moved from a bigger town and living in such a small town was weird. I wasn’t able to make friends that easily as I was a shy kid. I also had a little bit of an accent that I had picked up from where I lived and I remember a kid making fun of it.
I completely understand, moving here from a bigger place is a struggle.
Bleh kids are mean. We love you though!!
You’ve got us now, definitely won’t get rid of me as a friend.
Last spring break on the travel club trip to Europe. I felt out of place because I couldn’t communicate very well and it was a whole different culture.
Going from one culture to another and not knowing the language is very difficult.
In most unfamiliar situations I can recall (like traveling) everyone’s always been super nice and helpful. In new social situations, like visiting my grandpa or my step-dads side of the family, it’s always a little awkward, though they were nice. In new schools, most people were nice, or at least not mean, but kind ignored me at first.
Things can be awkward at first but it can get better.
It sucks to be ignored in a new school.
When I went to Arizona for about an hour or so with my dad for work. I flew in the front with him because he’s the pilot but it was awkward at first because I kind of had to stay out of sight and be very polite towards my dads boss and his friends. It was weird being amongst them but they were nice and made me feel welcomed.
I lived in the south for a year and was definitely treated like an outsider there because I talked differently and dressed differently. People would look at me like I was a different species. It made me feel out of place and miss my home.
The students that surrounded you definitely impacted your future didn’t they😉
They sure did. I learned a lot about myself in the old fifth grade.
I remember when I moved up to live with my mom my first grade year. I remember no one wanted to be friends with me because I was “the new girl.” I didn’t feel included in anything because no one wanted to be around me.
I used to hang around my older sister when we went to school together because I wanted a friend. I was only in kindergarten honestly
When I first moved here I felt like an outsider because I’m used to cities and more diversity. I still feel like an outsider but it really doesn’t bother me because I don’t care what people think about me. People just stare at me and talk about me behind my back.
I still get that even though I’ve lived here longer. It’s pathetic what people will do just to get attention drawn to them in small towns.
I completely understand where you’re coming from. This town is very close minded. I still feel like an outsider most the time too.
When I went to California it was really crowded and their were too many people, but I didn’t feel much different and people treat you the same.
My most recent unfamiliar environment was when I went to jail. I was anxious cause I knew my mom was going to kill me when I got home. I wasn’t to much of an outsider, I was in low priority and I adapted quick. I played poker betting commissary and worked out a lot. The food was great and I thought it was a fun experience. Especially when making fun of Benson with the hot chick cop that took my finger prints.
I feel outsider some times in some situation but it’s personal .
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
