Do you ever feel like you’re not normal?

Polls

6th November 2020

DO you ever feel like you’re different to everyone else or that you don’t fit in? Well, the charity Childline is launching a new campaign, Nobody is Normal, to show that you’re not alone.

Childline, a free helpline for children, hears from thousands of children every year, and many of them say they feel like they don’t fit in or feel ‘normal’. This can be for lots of different reasons, such as bullying, abuse or just not feeling comfortable in their own skin.

The new Nobody is Normal campaign aims to show that feeling like you don’t fit in is something that lots and lots of people experience, so it’s perfectly normal to not feel normal!

The campaign will address body image, mental and emotional health, sexuality and gender identity, and how the pandemic has made some of these insecurities worse.

I feel like im crazy older than myself and make these weird noises and sometimes feel shy and cry most of the time. Overall i think i am not normal and i think that's the same for other people. :3

If anyone is telling you that you are so different. Well, ignore them! We are all the same. We are all humans.

Sometimes I wonder what other people feel and think and what I am is different from everyone else. This makes me feel lonely as I don’t know whether I am “normal” or not.

I did not feel normal at school because I was bullied. this girl just hated me. I don't really know why. Felt like there was something wrong with me, maybe I wasn't good enough. Cause she was really good at school and she had an amazing voice. It didn't make me feel normal because this doesn't happen to normal girls. Then when we told the school about it they didn't do anything about it. I felt as if I was all alone, nobody to help me apart from my parents. Thats when I decided to move school even though I really liked it there. I had great friends and everything was great but just one person made it all bad. I feel a bit more normal now but am not quite back to my normal yet. It made me feel much better when my new friend at the new school told the class that she had been bullied too, physically at her old school. I didn't feel so alone with it.

sometimes my friends are too full of themselves and purposely want to leave me out and make me feel like I am always wrong... but I know them too well and understand that they are just playing around. I take this lightly as I know it is just a joke. If this happens to you and you know this wasn't a joke, tell an adult. BTW my friends are REALLY funny!

Yes I do as this girl keeps on bullying me,gives me noogies.Even though she can't write a 5 the right way round she says she is cleverer than me.She keeps on pushing me away from friends so I can't talk to them.I do not know why she hates me.The thing that is weird is that she spends more time on me than her friends.When the teacher is not looking, she pulls faces at me.I always help her but she acts like I did nothing and carries on bullying me.This all started from year 2 and now I'm in year 5. She keeps on insulting me and it's really annoying. I don't show her that I feel sad but it hurts me inside. A lot. At least I have a bit of time with my friends which makes me feel better.

Everyone is different
When I was a bit younger I used to have no friends and I felt like I was weird and not normal. I still think I'm weird and not normal but I've learnt to embrace it and now I've got lots of friends. :)

ivansp2011, that happened to me too, all the way through primary school, but life will get better, trust me.

She keeps chasing me too ready to do karate (well she's dumb so I guess not)

cloudy23 · 3 months ago

I guess. sometimes in a good and bad way. But it's great to be unique and different to other people...

I've got Asperger syndrome so I always feel left out and weird. It also means I've had to switch to home schooling because of bulling and the way that the school teaches, which makes me feel lonely since I don't see my friends very much anymore. Things are even hard at home because sometimes I don't understand my family and they don't understand me. I'm hoping things will be better in September because then I'll have the chance to start again at secondary school.

That is so true all of you, thank you for the good advice 😊

hxnestly · 4 weeks ago

Everyone is different and that’s a good thing. I often feel different to my friends and find it different to fit in. That is difficult/ and makes me feel that I’m less normal. Nonetheless, being different is a good thing. @grookster wow I relate so much. I can’t wait until September when I get a fresh start in secondary.

my friends are annoying …

Which is strange
Why are they my friends
Idk

123emperor · 4 weeks ago

I think I am different to others but I still do regular things. In different I mean everyone has their own appearance, personality and feelings. Some may have difficulties and ways that others do not have such as anxiety feelings or some might feel claustrophobic in crowded places and maybe even bullies who feel like the world is against them and feel like violence is the only answer. But we are all human and can choose to help others at the right time and for others to help you. (I hope this helps people who are having difficulties and I hope that this makes those that read this feel like they’re not alone and that everyone is special in their own way. :D)

We all might feel diffrent at times , let's face it we are all wierd, but if we weren't then we would all be boring and lame so being different is ok , it's just great! To be left out or bullied by someone is not right , who is to say you are not normal , what if your the normal one and they are crazy . You can't judge by look or sound , you should never discriminate. If your nice then others we follow , lead by example, dont force people to be a certain way , they will change when they are ready or they might never want to change. All I wanted to say was nobody is not normal , we are all the same but different if we weren't all different the world would be a world of suck , every one would look the same sound the same and act the same . So really there is no such thing al normal and not normal we are the same but different. TODAY YOU ARE YOU THAT IS TRUER THAN TRUE THERE IS NO ONE ALIVE WHO IS YOUER THAN YOU . And yes I do feel diffrent and I like it and so should you .

I think no one is really normal and everyone is special in their own way so if someone is mean to u cos ur not normal no one in my opinion is normal so just ignore them and the things that makes us different r the things that makes us beautiful :)
