Do you feel like you don’t belong here, in this world and society? You will be surprised to know that it may actually be a good thing.

We grow up believing that in order to be happy, we need to belong somewhere – a society, a country, a social circle, and finally, a family.

The desire to be a part of something bigger than ourselves seems to be our innate need, which probably has evolutionary roots (remember the well-known notion that human is a social animal?). As Wikipedia states, “belongingness is the human emotional need to be an accepted member of a group.”

But what happens in the case of people who don’t only lack this need but also feel that they don’t really fit in this world? Some individuals don’t simply consider themselves different from the rest – they actually have different tastes, ways of thinking, and priorities in life. They don’t like popular things and activities and don’t go after the goals most people pursue.

They may seem a sort of weirdos to those around them, but the truth is that there is a bright side of being a “misfit.”

Today, we will discuss four categories of people who are very likely to have a sense of detachment from the world because of their emotional and mental makeup. Moreover, it’s not a bad thing at all and is, in fact, an indication of increased awareness and sensitivity.

1. Deep thinkers

Sadly, the society we live in is giving more and more importance to primitive instincts and material needs. So it makes sense why individuals capable of deep thought may feel like they don’t belong here.

If you are a deep thinker, then you probably know what truly matters in life. That’s why seeing people around you chasing ephemeral goals and being interested in meaningless stuff is so disappointing. It’s not only disappointing – sometimes, it makes you wonder what you are doing here, among these people, and feel like you come from another world.

2. Old souls

Old souls often feel like they don’t belong here, especially when growing up. Being passionate about unpopular things may make others pick up on your differences and tease you for it. And this can be painful in your awkward childhood and teenage years, making you feel like a misfit who doesn’t have a place in this world.

In your adult years, this gap separating you from other people only becomes bigger. However, you find your path in life and don’t care the same about what they think about you.

3. Empaths

Empaths are so sensitive to the emotions and energy of other people that they may find it uncomfortable to be around them. If you are an empath, you know that every time you watch a news broadcast or learn something sad about someone you know, you get truly upset.

All these side effects of being an empath can also provoke a sense of detachment. And it’s no surprise – there is so much greed, cruelty, and violence in today’s world that an empath may suffer, being a part of it.

4. People who experience a spiritual awakening

A spiritual awakening is a great experience that elevates you to a higher level of consciousness and turns you into a spiritually evolved being. However, it is also paired with painful feelings and experiences because fundamental changes are never easy.

Not only do you start to wonder about the existence, reconsidering your life decisions and relationships, but you may also feel detached from those around you and the world in general. It’s all because you are becoming more aware and understand things you previously turned a blind eye to.

If you feel like you don’t belong here, remember that there is nothing wrong with you.

Instead of worrying about what others think and seeking their approval, try to find your passion and life purpose. And it’s fine if it doesn’t seem attractive or “cool” to most people. The point is that it should fill your life with meaning and happiness.

Did any of the above-described things ring true for you? We would love to hear your thoughts on this.

If you are feeling like a misfit, you may want to read my recent articles that provide some guidance for coping with this emotional state:

When the flood of comments came in response to this article, I realized that there were far more people who felt like they didn’t belong here, in this world and society, than I had imagined.

Inspired by this fact, I wrote the book The Power of Misfits: How to Find Your Place in a World You Don’t Fit In to help all those introverts, empaths, and deep thinkers who feel alien to modern society. If you are feeling this way and are looking for answers, you may want to check my book on Amazon.

    I just don’t know what to do or think anymore, I want to leave this universe. I have nothing left. I am always alone, I feel like I am stuck on a planet and the whole world just disappears and I am left to battle the world for myself. I have no home here, no family, no one… I just want to know what is on the other side, where do people go, everything just vanish and I am always left here whyyyy… Please take me home or to the place I belong.

      I feel like I’m just a ball of energy that wants to be free of this constrictive body. I feel claustrophobic and I see weird stuff I can’t find any relation to anywhere in my dreams…I belong somewhere else but not here and can’t stand people anymore I hate practically everyone… I’m never understood or misunderstood nobody understands my ideas. It just goes over their heads. I feel there it’s no good in people anymore and because I’m empathetic I get constantly screwed over… I’m a sentient being with a fragile heart and I’m breaking into a trillion pieces… This is not my home. I’m not meant to live like this. I want to rip out my eyes so I can’t see. Stab my ears to not hear and cut out my tongue to not speak. What is the use of senses if you can’t communicate and be understood. It’s better if you can’t even try then the pain is filled. I’m always alone and it’s killing me.

      I feel the excat same way as you ,Ever since I was a kid I always thought that someday id discover the truth that I didn’t belong here and infact I was someone very important from a completely new world, Somone would come along ,As if predestined,find me and bring me to the place I am supposed to be, Where I actually feel important and I also feel like I am being listened to for once in my life.But I know that stuff only happens in story books,But real life is acc so depressing.Is it wrong that I don’t feel like I have a purpose anymore? I Just want a bit of excitement in my life,A circle of friends that make me feel loved and valued and….and that I matter .But unfortunately…that’s not gonna happen,People ask me why I don’t seek out friends or try to socialise,My answer is not only do I feel so detached and lonely,Its also because I know for a fact when I meet people I get attached too fast,They stick by me for a couple of weeks,Months and then….When it matters most
      they leave…without a simple word or explanation. That’s why I don’t seek friends out, Some people see me as being too sensitive….are they right? or are they just saying that because they want to deny the fact that sometimes I care more about certain people and things then they do?

    don’t feel bad. I feel the same way, kind of.

    I’ve always been ‘different’. while I’m sure some can be attributed to my abusive, isolated childhood and the rough time I’ve had in my adult years, I honestly don’t think these are the sole reasons.

    I just feel like my soul is from, or belongs to, another realm/world.

    I think a lot of the reason its so bad for me is that, and no I can’t explain how I know this or why I know this, people of this world just…. they suck! Greedy, materialistic, self-centered, with little to no respect for anyone or anything else.

    I know not all are like this. Just far too many. More now than I ever remember there being. And its only getting worse.

    Is this a spiritual awakening? idk. Am I empathic? Yeah.. I think so. Deep thinker? Ohh yeah. You’ve no idea. Old Soul? I don’t think so. I feel like my soul is relatively young compared to some I’ve met. (yes, I’ve met Old Souls.)

    And I have to admit I feel like the world I belong to isn’t so far out of my reach, and yet, it might as well be on the other side of the Universe.

    Its strange. Idk. I just don’t belong here. At all. Not in ‘earlier times’, or ‘in a different generation’, but an entirely different world. Like, This isn’t my real body (what I mean is, this isn’t what I look like on the inside, or should I say, what my soul says my real self looks like), and the life I’m living seems to be merely an existence. I exist. But I’m not truly LIVING.

    I don’t know how else to say it. Its depressing as hell though, I’ll tell you that.

    Lately a lot has been happening in my country. I hear about the Indian army raping women in Kashmir. I hear about the Indian police causing chaos in Muslim University in Delhi. I am away from all of this physically ,but I can’t ignore it. I see people hurt animals online , it’s so common. I see that women and girls have always been the oppressed ones in society forever. I don’t belong here. This is a place of lies, betrayal, greed and all evils a human body could contain. I don’t want to be a part of this system where my money goes into funding terrorists and the destruction of this planet. I am lucky to have been born in a family where I am safe and privileged ,but I don’t belong here. This world and it’s demonic people aren’t for me.

    This feeling is odd. I don’t drive. I’d rather walk or ride my bike. Go to the library than a mall. I get severe panic attacks at watching the news, going to the supermarket. Everyone says come join the conversation but I cant. I don’t like being around people. I don’t fit in this world. People pay tons of money for a gym when a walk is better. I’ve always felt like an outsider.

    My thing is, I feel like I don’t belong where I am: I want to go to where I used to live as a child, but I know I don’t belong to the past anymore. I don’t feel like I don’t belong to the church where I live, but I believe in what it teaches. I was abused by my ex-Husband and so I moved away from this area. The people in my church thinks he is mister wonderful, and don’t believe me, even though I had witnesses. When I moved away no one knew him. But even then I felt like I didn’t belong. I feel lost. I’m not Happy where I am in life. I moved back and I moved in with my daughter. I want to go places (travel) but my budget is limited. And even then I don’t feel like I belong. I know there is a reason why things happen, and I know I have a purpose to fulfill, I just wish I knew what is is. I feel alone even though I am not alone. I am part of a family but not part of the family.

      I think it’s ok to feel this way. You went through a lot. Give yourself time to heal and let go. Think about a friend who would “feel” good to have around… Even if you don’t know this person yet. Your answer is right around you… and it’s coming to you.
      Have you tried listening to some positive messages on podcasts yet? Find something that sounds good and fitting to your current needs. Once you seek these, it will almost feel like they are finding you… you will bump into them everywhere.
      Just know that you are not alone. We are all struggling in some areas of our life even if we don’t say it to anybody. At least you let it out… I love you for that. I hear you! You are awesome and unique! There is only one of you and we need everybody. I’m here for you.

    Looks like at the same time you all feel you dont belong you all have a lot of progressist thinking, that lead you to depression. Why not to have a warlike atitude against humans? In a world that is a prision, the only honorable exit if WAR! Even if you have no interest in mundane politics, there’s no existence without conflict. Even if there’s no hope, the pleasure is the struggle and conflict of everyday against all you find on street. I’m pro-gun person. Civil Armamentist!

    Coming from someone who constantly fits in ALL 4 of these categories; helped me get a better insight on my life. I’ve already been realizing all of this. Most people think I’m just depressed, or just being different. But what is wrong with being different? I want to THANK YOU for the confirmation that what I’m doing and where I’m going is right. It’s MY path! It’s only for me to understand, not ANYONE else!

    I so feel this way. Doctors label you as depressed or antisocial and want to dope you up on drugs to make you feel and act like society thinks you should. I refuse all drugs. I know who I am and they don’t. Some of us are just smart enough to know we do not have a place here. Just because we are here doesn’t mean we belong here. And it doesn’t mean that there is anything mentally wrong with us for feeling that way.

    This is the only website I have found that talks about this. I can’t explain it but everything is a haze sometimes and I feel like there is a wall separating me from the world I know I should be in. I feel depressed and my lungs feel painful because of the weight of this emotion. I sleep so that I can stay away from the world it feels like I shouldn’t be in. People tell me I need to “snap out of it” but I feel like if I do then I will lose sight of what is on the other side of that wall. I know that there is something I love there and something I miss but I’m just in the wrong place. If I close my eyes I can feel it there. The depression that people see from the outside isn’t that bad in my head. It’s actually a pleasant warmth and comfort to know such a beautiful place exists but it brings me such grief to feel like I can’t reach it. Sometimes I feel like this is all just a simulation and I need to wake up. I can’t talk to anybody because obviously I’m the only one I know who feels like none of this is real. When I talk I feel like it brings me further away from the beautiful place that I cling to. It often feels like a memory or sudden emotion brought on by color or sound. I guess people would tell me I’m high all the time even though the only things that I get high off of are my thoughts. I know I’m different but when I tell people that they think I am being full of myself. Take a look into my mind and see if you think you are the same as me.

    An old soul definitely but im thinking that’s just a small part of why I think I’m different.i found a nack in sales because I have a gift with being able to connect.there a very few humans I have not been able to not just read but see through . I not only know what there thinking but what you will say next .where your most likely from . I see your childhood . your intentions. Your current mood . a smile unlocks part of there soul whether or not there hood or bad it goes on and on what I makes it incredibly easy to connect on because I can respond exactly to there needs to get the reaction I need. But extremely hard to connect on a ( real ) level. I find most ignorant . shallow uninspiring. Actually i have only met one other like me . only for a moment and did not realize that she sees what I see. The world as it is. People as they are. If this makes sense to anyone . If you see past what most see .

    Hey friends,

    The post resonated with me, spoke to me directly. Then I read some of the comments. Yes I’ve felt this way too and a lot of. In fact I’ve gone through all of the 1-4 described above categories, in that order, trying to battle this; this feeling, sense, hurt of not belonging. And basically what I’ve done is fuck all: half-efforts, always not satisfied, not finishing shit, never filling myself up (with likewise effects on relationships). But now I’m starting to doubt some things – my way that is. I mean, does it not make sense that the most you “try” to fit in, the more you won’t be able to? So yeah that must be right. I guess I’ve been afraid to not be guided by others, and so live life really. I know, I know… everybody is afraid, but there always comes a point when you must learn.

    Ok, skipping to the point, please listen to me. I doubt nothing, shun on nobody. With difficulty, not even me. The thing is:
    If we, who have something (or a lot more) to offer, decide to leave this world, this fucking beautiful but aching world, the who the hell will be left to save it? Who will stay and fight? I just can’t bare the thought of moronic assholes and back-stabing traitors and lying smart-asses and generally all those selling their mother out for some gift of the system, I can’t stand them inheriting the earth and driving her to disaster.
    If we decide, seeing and admitting the problem of the situation, to get involved with it fully consciously and seriously, then I mean, we would have strength in doing so. That’s the meaning of companionship and great causes. Me, you, her and him would be and do better. It is a choice and only a choice. But it speaks to me, this viewpoint.
    Why is it not, that this world is being taking away from us?
    I say these because I want to hear them myself and I need to move that way first. And I am worried of a world that seems to be being put in smaller and smaller boxes while we lose more and more options to react. Spirituality is a way to take more air, a new breath, energy, let’s open up our hearts and make it right! If it sounds classic, it’s because it has always been so. Not without new elements though. And not without some pain.

    I don’t lack the need but I do feel like I don’t fit in this world, I guess changing that simple fact completely changes all your points.
    To me it seems most people are motivated mainly by greed and fear, and are almost exclusively focused on themselves.
    I’ve tried finding things to be passionate about and I have many but as far as I can tell they function as nothing more than a distraction from the bigger picture.
    It feels like ultimately all endeavour is meaningless as is the void that we all inhabit, I understand the point of life being a journey and there never being a true goal but if that’s the case; a journey with no defined end can reach its end at any point, which ultimately deems the length irrelevant which also then compromises the point of the journey itself.
    I guess what I’m saying is I’m struggling with the underlying fact that ultimately there is no purpose, seems our only option is to try and fulfil the innate needs that have been evolved into us over the last 10,000 years or so in an effort to be happy.
    Let me know if you think otherwise or if you have a better option.

    1. Avatar

      If there’s no purpose then the idea of life becomes meaningless. Well, it surely looks like that taking into consideration how almost nothing makes sense while in the same time we’re “obligated” to serve as slaves to this kind of system.
      Then again, as I believe that everything’s possible, maybe there is a higher goal that each of us carries within meaning that everything has it’s purpose.
      Well, there are many theories, but in the end it comes down to what we all choose to believe in.
      Regardless, the very existence on this beautiful planet is frustrating at least, because people who are able to do a positive change don’t have the power to do that, while the power is in the hands of the ones guided by primitive instincts and goals like power, money and destruction. You come to the point of asking yourself: “What am I doing here – am I here only to observe how life is falling apart?” What bothers me a lot is that people who believe in moral values and act according to them, should be the ones who enlighten the way to the “primitive” ones, but instead it happens that those good people become prisoners of the system and have no other way to act but as the “primitive” ones, good & beautiful souls are being tortured here on Earth…

    The human species is a plague on the earth much like the virus threatening us now and others. Like the virus we really don’t want to kill the place we inhabit, but to stupid to adapt to kept it thriving. Just multiply and consume until its dead. I spend most of my time by myself and I have a girlfriend (live in). I’m a war veteran with deppression, anxiety, insomnia and other health issues. All I hear are complaints from people (those I know and those I don’t). I used to suck it all up until I locked myself in a room until I could shed all the negativity. Now I’m kind of numb cause it sucks feeling everyone’s pain and I have so much of my own. I end up feeling like everyone around me is a total idiot. What matters to them doesn’t matter to me because it has nothing to do with appreciating life (not in a quote unquote tree hugger way… I do care about the environment though). Their way is about “enjoying” life by destroying it. Ok, for example, gold is a shiny piece of metal and a diamond is a clear shiny rock… It’s a @$!# ROCK! People decided the value of a thing and others go along with it ripping up the ground for something so unimportant. Vacant buildings with people living on the street. No offense to pet owners/animal lovers but putting dogs, cats, etc above and before human life…. WTF. 63 cent a day can feed these animals for a month, what about the kid eating out of the trash can, getting beaten by parents, foster parents etc. No offense why are 100% proven and I stress 100% proven convicted murders, rapist, etc getting better treatment than those without homes and food. Jails are full of people never getting out a waste of resources. Race should only matter when concerns of healthcare (it’s been proven what works for some races don’t work for others), but other than that who gives a damn what color your skin is. I see ignorance and intelligence. If your not intelligent are you willing to TRY to listen and learn, no…. Ignorance Waste of Space and Time. Oh so you can dunk a basketball, sing a beautiful song, drive a car in a circle for hours… Let’s give you millions to live on. Can you grow or hunt your own food, build a house, provide medical assistance or protection from danger… No, you have a useless talent. Entertainment is all the people care about. This Covid 19 crisis is proving people are not cut out for a world without entertainment. Use this time to get in touch with yourself and loved one you are with. Most will find how shallow their lives are because they have nothing to turn to. Read a book Damn it. END OF RANT could go on forever. Sorry everyone.

    Have always feel like I don’t belong to this world. I feel trapped in this body of mine.Then I often ask myself if I don’t belong to this world, then where do I belong? It feels like someone is waiting for me somewhere or even watching me over the years. I told this to a teacher of mine, he recommended a book to me titled The road back to you. I don’t see it impact. I find it difficult to make friends, I don’t have friends cause most people do not understand me even my siblings. And I keep distance from people. I really long to know where I truly belong.

    I’ve been feeling this way for several years now. I call it feeling un-tethered but it’s also feeling distant, apart from others, feeling like there is no reason really to remain in this mortal form. I say out loud to myself, “I’m feeling weird, I think there’s something wrong with me”. Then I’ll laugh because it reminds me of that song by Drowning Pool called Bodies (“Nothing wrong with me”). I relate to that song so much in a way, but in another way I abhor it because it sounds like a mass murderer’s anthem too (“let the bodies hit the floor”) which is so not me…but the idea that it’s SOCIETY that has something wrong with it is the strongest theme for me. I’ve had so much pain. loss, grief, and trauma over the past 3 years that I’ve about come to the end of my rope… Definitely suffering from PTSD, no official diagnosis needed.

The present day circumstances have been extremely difficult to deal with as it seems hypocrisy has become the way of the world and there is nothing good to look towards if people are involved. Politics are at the center of every single thing and regardless of where you stand on them you are ostracized and belittled into obscurity for not being enough X or being too much Y because nobody respects others anymore. I’m so sick of present day society and just want to escape from it all.

I don’t belong in this time and space. This dimension. This world is beautiful, and I see the beauty in it. But to me, the only thing that makes this world so ugly is humans who don’t have a clue. Of course I feel separated from society..but I’m not ok with it. I wish I could “fit in” like I used to..but I’m not the same person as I was before. I’m wiser, and awakened. I wish I had someone to talk to (or have a connection with) on a daily basis, or even weekly. I just started a job where I work with hundreds of people, and needles to say, I have yet to connect with anyone. Everyone there (and my family) treat me like I’m an alien. I’m empathetic, I’m friendly when I do meet people, I respect people even when they don’t deserve it, I have morals and values..that just doesn’t seem to match with most others. Guess that’s just not a common/popular thing for most of society to obtain. Trying to look at this, after reading others comments, that we are….the 1% of the population.

    Also I want to add, that I’m trying to keep in mind that most of society these days are on some kind of medication, which usually dulls the spirit. It makes people ego centric and emotionless. Especially depression medication. I don’t take anything, and so many people think I should. But I do have my medical marijuana card, and that’s is the only kind of medication that I feel helps. Earth’s medication. I can go without it, but it helps keep my thoughts in check whenever I’m alone.

    Sorry, I’m just rambling cause I hope others can relate and understand how I feel.

    I feel so similar to the people that are commenting.

    Is there a group where like minded people can talk?

    To everyone who commented on my article, you may want to check out my new book “The Power of Misfits: How to Find Your Place in a World You Don’t Fit In”. I wrote it for all of you who, just like myself, feel alien to modern society.
    The book is available on Amazon –

    Any options other than Facebook?
    Their terms and conditions of use and privacy policy are disgusting. As are Amazon’s. I refuse to accept.

      There is also a community on Quora if you like, but it’s less active than our FB group –
      As for the book, I will probably publish it on other platforms as well (such as Barnes & Noble) in 2021, but for now it’s available only at Amazon.
