<span style="font-family:'Franklin Gothic Medium';"><span style="font-size:small;"><span>I come from a very small community, and my very small community isn't very open minded. I constantly feel like I don't really fit in. I'm the only vegetarian, which people seem to find amazing, they can't seem to understand why I don't want to eat meat! People are constantly trying to get me to eat meat, or go hunting.<br><br>
Second of all I don't believe in god. Pretty much everyone in my community is christian, and my family wouldn't approve of my not believing at all, so I don't tell anyone, but people ask why I don't say the Lords Prayer in the morning at school or go to church on Sunday.<br><br>
Third of all I seem to think different then the kids at school or my family at home. If I see a fly on the floor or whatever I leave it, if it wants to live in my house I have no problem with that (in the summer I do put them outside just so my house doesn't become infested) whereas everyone else would stomp on it or rip it legs and wings off <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br>
Theres way more, but my vegetarianism seems to be the main thing thats seperating me. Does anyone else have this problem?</span></span></span>

That must be awful. Are there any veg societies that are in nearby, larger towns? If there are, you can go to an event of some sort organized by the veg group.

I don't think running away from a town when you are in your teens will solve any of your problems.

I live in Norways second largest city, I dress all black, am vegetarian, have a large interest in vampires, serial killers and satanism.<br><br>
I guess I'm different, but everyones different if you look close enough.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, I love attention and people staring at me..I could it see it being a problem if you dont like the attention though.

people who are smart enough to question the culture of their small town get to leave that town and go on to have amazing lives, but they have to pay for it with 4 years of being "different" in high school. which is not a bad deal, when you think about it.
