Im so tired of being an outcast. It is exhausting. I've never fit in before, and now I don't fit in with moms either. I'm not crunchy enough, or "free parenting" enough, not liberal or conservative enough, not a helicopter mom. There's nowhere that I fit, and as a result my kids don't fit either. Like today, someone posted a public preteen middle school pizza party, invite for all preteens, outdoors, masks, perfect for us since we fit in that category. Nope. Expressed interest and the mom says "oh no, thanks for your interest but this is for 13 and up and just for certain people. Not for everyone!" Then why post that everyone was welcome? It's bad enough that I struggle socially, but every time I put myself out there I get rejected. I'm tired.
