I realize I'm a teenager and we're all supposed to have trouble at some point with fitting in with others, but I feel really stuck.
I feel really lonely because I don't fit in anywhere besides here, and sometimes I don't feel like I fit in here either. I don't fit in with my friends anymore because (as stuck up as this sounds) I can't have a conversation on any sort of intellectual level with them, and the maturity level they're at is nowhere near mine. I don't fit in with my family because they're always pushing me to be someone I'm not. I don't fit in at school because regardless of what I join, I'm always the 'nerd'. I don't fit in at the college where I hang out occasionally, because I'm seen as the young one.
I just don't feel like I fit in anywhere. I used to say that I don't really care what people think of me, but it's starting to get me down because it's actually really lonely.
I'm just stuck and being alone all the time is not going to help my efforts of trying to keep depression away.
Does anyone else have any problems with feeling lonely/not fitting in, and if so, what have you done to solve it?
