My Soul

(Photos courtesy of Empath Diaries…..)

I have always felt like an outsider.  I have always felt like I was from somewhere else.  I have never fit in.  No matter where I went, I was never like everyone else.  I have never been liked or popular either.  I have always been different.  I knew I would be judged and criticized.  I knew this in the 2nd grade.  I realized then and there, that I should just be myself.  I realized that people would talk anyways, and it would be a waste to try and fit in.

I long for a place where I can finally feel at home.  I long to feel welcomed and celebrated.  I don’t just want to be tolerated.  Toleration is not the same as acceptance and celebration.  They are both very different.  I have my own ways of doing things.  I have a theory for just about everything.  I also have a methodology for every thing I do.

I enjoy being alone, more than socializing.  I enjoy quiet time, or music to feel more at ease.  I am a very straight-forward person.  I tell it like it is.  I call it like I see it.  I have no tolerance for stupid people.  By that I don’t mean you have to have many degrees, I just mean, use common sense.  If you don’t have any common sense you will quickly tire my patience.  I have as much patience for dumb people as Trump has brain cells.

I long for the short days, and long nights.  I long for cold days and rainy nights.  I adore the sound of the rain.  There is nothing better.  I always feel so cozy.  The rain lulls me to sleep and comforts me during the day.  The water speaks to me, and I can clearly hear the voice of my soul.

  1. Well, I can tell you, you are not alone in feeling this way. I have felt this way most of my life. I will tell you how I turned my feelings of not belonging into one’s of being. It did not happen until I was a lot older. I made my own place of belonging. I found groups of people who were a lot like me and thought the same way I do.
