I usually feel excluded whenever I attended a new school or
when I enter into places where I don’t any one or have any friends. The most
recent occasion was when I went to a large conference with people from all
over, I knew no one there. I sat by myself and took in the presentation but did
not speak or take part in what was being said. I felt very excluded and like I
was out of my league. I’m not one to make friends immediately, so it was a very
lonely experience for me.
