Feeling Like I Just Don’t Fit In Anywhere

loner

I’m a 19 year old college student who recently became saved. I just woke up one day and decided I didn’t want to live the way I had been living anymore. Since that day, it seems like I don’t fit in anywhere anymore. I know most of you are going to say I don’t need approval from anyone but God, but before you do, let me explain. I have no friends. NONE! Ever since I started changing my ways and trying to live right, my friends have all disappeared. Some of them, I don’t mind because they are bad influences anyway. but when I try to hang with Christian friends from church, I don’t fit in with them neither. You all can say that no one needs friends, but everyone needs someone to talk to. I’m just feeling like this is supposed to be a happy time in my life with a new attitude and new beginning, but instead I’m more miserable than I’ve ever been. How do I manage?

I too have a very close relationship with the Lord, and even fellow Christians are not close to me. I mean I can expect the worldly people and friends to walk away from me, but Christians too? It is almost overwhelming until I remember 2 Timothy 2:12 “If ye suffer, we shall also reign with him: If we deny him, he also will deny us: I believe that God wants us to learn to hear his voice more clearly. So the Holy Spirit is saying “talk to me I am you friend” In every conversation or question, concern, or problem… Read more »

I’m the same way. I haven’t had real friends for a very, very long time. Although I’m a Christian, I don’t feel like I fit in with the people at my church. I often feel different than most of the girls my age (Christian or otherwise). It’s a lonely feeling. I am still trying to figure out why this is true, but I’m starting to think that maybe God just wants me to go to Him in my loneliness and in my differentness. So in other words, maybe God is trying to make me rely on Him and His companionship… Read more »

Yes I’ve never really had any friends my whole life until I started partying and then I had all kinds of friends but then I gave my life to christ and once again my friends disappeared and like you I don’t really fit in at church I think God just want some people all to himself lol your not alone. remember John 15:18-25 it explains everything Mathew 10:22 as well peace and love

Well.. i could have wrote this! That’s exactly how i feel! ๐Ÿ˜ I gave my life to Jesus about 4 years ago! And for awhile I felt like the Holy Spirit had me on house arrest! ๐Ÿ˜‚ He probably did. I believe He removed me from society to transform me. Before and after being baptized I was STARVING for Him! For the Truth. I was ravenously devouring the Bible, reading books about scripture, watching videos about Jesus, reading and writing posts about Jesus! I was malnourished and wanted filled. And God is faithful! When we seek Him with a pure… Read more »

I feel the same way right now, I use to party and had people to always hang out with, now that I’m a Christian I feel like a misfit and I wouldn’t say I’m depressed about it but it definitely hurts to see friend groups at church and just not be able to fit in
