Being The Odd One Watch
Mmm anyway, what I learned was that you find ways to work around it. In the end, things like that don't really matter... if you like someone then be friends with them and find common ground (and keep differences in the background). Otherwise... why bother being friends with them at all?
And, for many years, nothing much changed, I was always on the outside, ecept for a few chums. But, then, about two years ago, I thought, this is stupid, I can fit in. I didn't really alter myself, I just made more of an effort. I still can't go a bike, or enjoy shopping and I INSIST on having mad, curly hair but I stopped thinking of myself as different. OK, they aren;t exactly bossom buddies, but I like them, they like me and I have more fun. If I need to do work, I do work and no one minds, but sometimes it's nice to be silly, for a spell. If you don't want to be different, stop thinking about everyone else as a different species - you'll have something in common with each of them if you try.
I was 5ft 9 at the age of 8 ( have only grown three more inches though, thank god)
