Is anyone here an outcast?

Not in the high school sense of being an outcast but you're either a:

social outcast - have no friends/family or you get into continuous conflict with them. Perhaps you've been disowned

legal outcast: - you're marked forever by a criminal record and can't get a job

physical outcast - you're different in some way physically (too tall/short, extremely ugly, transgender) to the point where random people on the street view you differently

I'd say that I'd fit most into the first one, less so the last. I have almost been charged for forging a medical prescription.

I'm the black sheep of my family (I was literally told I am by my mother), so technically I'm a social outcast. I grew up fighting with pretty much everybody and was basically kicked out of home when I was 17. Though, my mother did help me move, she didn't want me there anymore. She'd fallen pregnant again and I guess I was just in the way. I guess you could say that solidified my outcast status.

According to my mother I'm also the Devil's spawn. She's decided I'm going to Hell when I die. That's okay, because I've already bought my ticket anyway, so fuk her and everybody else.

I’m none of those by those definitions, I don’t like doing a lot of things socially but I have friends and have no problems making them when I want to. I’ve had my criminal records sealed, and I’m not a physical outcast

I forgot to add that I'm also considered a social outcast because I've been kicked out of places - a caravan park I was living in years ago (yes, I was 'trailer trash' for awhile), a public bar and a medical clinic. Oh, and I was basically kicked out therapy after 3 sessions because the psychologist decided the therapy wasn't working.

Fits me the most, it does not mean you never can get a job- It means that it is harder for you to get a job if you want one.

Physical outcast - I use a cane, walker or wheelchair, depending on the day and activity. Because I'm young (mid 20s), strangers ask me about it all the time.
RAD kid turned PD-NOS adult (which doesn't exist anymore). Basically a mix-and-match.

The OP didn't ask what you prefer to see yourself as. S/he's basically asking how you're viewed in society or within your own family.

I think you’ve posted this before if I’m not mistaken? Can I be one of the strangers and ask what happened? Was it a car accident or an illness?
