Puzzle piece analogy

  1. I'm just wondering if anyone feels the way I do. I live just south of Charlotte, NC in a small town named Fort Mill, South Carolina. I absolutely hate it here. I've lived here for 14 years(I'm 19) and I never really "fit in" here. I hate calling it that, but I have yet to find anyone with opinions like mine.

    Most girls around here are against weed and people who use it. Everytime I go out with one I have to lie and say I don't smoke or they will go on an anti-pot rant(yes "every" girl....I've tested this lol. Most people around here are all about getting drunk and having southern redneck parties. Guys are usually rednecks or frat boys and girls are greek also and only like the stereotypical frat boy(Sperry shoes, collared shirt, bright colored shorts, visor, and sunglasses on the lanyard around their neck. You know who I'm talking about, the "bro")

    I try to get along with anyone and everyone without even looking at what they wear, it doesn't matter to me, I hang out with anyone from goths to the frat boys, but they fit into there stereotypes with a couple differences. When I talk about legalization of marijuana, people act like I'm crazy and that I'm a drug addict and they are far superior of that "drug".

    I also just don't like living somewhere where my believes are just viewed so poorly like my belief in religion(I don't consider myself an atheist, but pretty close).I've visited Los Angeles and Denver and love both those cities and people seemed much nicer and accepting of people from all different backgrounds/beliefs. Maybe it's just the people I saw or it was somewhere different so I was looking for it a lot more...I don't know.

    I don't mean to rant and I'll stop for now but does anyone else feel like this? where they are at? Or am I just a whining "bitch"? lol but seriously I'd like any input. BTW this is how I feel with this Puzzle piece analogy. I feel like I'm a piece that doesn't belong, like my city is a big puzzle all put together perfectly and I'm just an extra piece that doesn't fit anywhere...I dunno Maybe I'm overanalyzing this but I've been thinking of this ever since Middle School.
  2. Just because a piece of the puzzle is different it doesn't mean it doesn't belong. In fact, when you look closely, all the pieces of the puzzle are different. The puzzle is not complete until every last piece is in its correct place.

    Just because you're different doesn't mean you don't belong. You just need to find the right section of the puzzle to fit into. There's a gap there somewhere that only a piece like you can fill.
  3. Dude, you need to become a motivational speaker, because that was the most phenomenal thing I've ever read.
  4. and yet the funny thing is so does everyone else and in reality if you guys are all puzzle pieces you're just a big ol pile of em.
