My name is Brandon and im 18. I have a good life and im very outgoing. But, all my life i felt like none of this is right for me. As i got older i learned more about life and the more i learned the more i didn't like about it. I feel like i should have been born in a different time and place. No job or lifestyle that i know of seems right for me. I feel lost and confused. Is it strange to think i shouldnt be here?

I've always feel like you do since i was little. Then as i grew older,say about 8/9, i started even feeling more like that. I grew up as one of six kids in a beautiful family,3 boys,three girls. I'm the second child.I never felt like i belonged there. By there i mean i use to live overseas where i'm originally from. I could;t understand why i never really felt happy or why i always felt like i got to go somewhere else.Why i never really liked celebrating my birthdays as a kid. I always felt like i missed my way out here and should have been somewhere else. Why i'm i not happy over here with the rest of everybody? why does my mind always seems far?I always felt like i got to go. I really never fitted in. But then deep inside of me i knew i was a very good person. So all my life growing up i never really enjoyed spending time with the rest of the family because my mind was busy planning a getaway. I finally moved when i was twenty three. I fly outta the country to school and pursue my carrer in the U.S. I am now 33 and guess What ????? I stlll kinda feel same way right now but i guess i'm still on my journey. My advice is for you to stay close to God.Pray for his direction,for him to take the lead and you will follow. For one thing i know for sure is that God has a mission for me.i feel it deep inside.Don't really know how to get there ,but i now its coming from God. You have a purpose here. Just ask God. He will show you. Even though nothing in the books fits you. It might just be that special talent that God gave you that would be of good usage to you. Stay Blessed. read the Bible.

It's true the more we know about life we dont life. human mind is like that. we dont like what is infront of me. everyone has some kinda expection all the time. but try to find joy in everything you do ya even sometime you don't find something you want dont give up. keep on trying and believe me something good always comes when you hope truly and you keep on trying.... Life is not that bad. dont feel bad about why, just be glad what you are! dont expect too much

Look up screenwriting. Richard Walter's books specifically. Probably will help you.

You're not alone Brandon in how you feel about your life and asking yourself why you're here. I ask myself that question sometimes too.

Maybe try reading The Power of Now or learning about Buddhism? I heard someone say the other day that he used to feel the same way as you, but when he started getting into Buddhism he felt it was right for him.

Sure it is normal to feel alienated. But if you look I think you will find the things that are real & have meaning to you.

Hello, I too am almost eighteen, and feel like this. I cannot picture my future in any shape or form, and I think that perhaps I should have been born somewhere else. I have a great life in all other aspects, kind friends and family and stuff, but I just don't feel right about it. Sometime that makes me feel guilty, but most of the time I feel fairly indifferent about it. All I hope is that I find something to live for - that gives my life some sort of meaning. I hope you find this, too.

I feel the same way also. I feel like i should have been born in 1800. When i start feeling like i dont fit in, I listen to Big Country the storm,lost patrol or porrohman....
