i don't know, i'm kind of rambling my thoughts here. anyone else feel something similar? or just feel like they stick out or don't fit in?
I felt pretty similarly when I was in high school. Honestly, though, there is so much variety in life; and the main reason high school feels
as homogeneous as it does is because there are so many self-conscious social protocols specifically designed for that purpose. For the most part, one's teenage years are some of the most insecure--it's when that culture of "finding yourself" and making that matter
takes shape, and in a big way. The irony is, however, that what we do
find often isn't ourselves at all--but a distant reflection in other people and who we think they
think we ought to be. Enter cliques and ridiculous stereotypes stage right.
All of this rambling is to say: What you're feeling isn't abnormal. In fact, it's probably more common than you realize--even among those who seem, from the outside, to be seamlessly performing these roles and finding their niches.
I know it feels isolating sometimes, but try not to sweat it too much. Find yourself, whatever that means to you, and cherish her--whoever she is. Because she deserves it. The rest will fall into place if it needs to.
