1.- someone who doesn't belong in his main social area (work, school, the street) Has only a few friends, but usually doesn't really hang out with them. Someone who is told by his betters that he has wisdom beyond his years, but his peers make fun of him for it. He's a little insane, after all, humans are social creatures. But his heart is mature, calm and kind. He never really does anything big for himself, and most of the things he does are for other people. He's just misunderstood, and people hate him for no reason. He's usually the victim of every negative stereotype and rumor. But hey, he doesn't have a social life, it doesn't matter to him, he hardly has anything to lose.

2.- Me
I'm an outcast, whether you like it or not, and there's nothing i can do for you socially, so why do you keep supporting me?

Someone who is years ahead of his time. A young version of the wise old owl, he is often misunderstood as being self-centered, snobbish, or sketchy, whatever the hell that means. Unfortunately for him, he's often neither, just extremely shy. Because of his shyness, he becomes more and more withdrawn from society which makes him even more reluctant to talk to others (after all, what could they be saying about him behind his back?) He needs a friend and probably would make a very loyal friend, but his social isolation leaves him doubtful of who to trust. Basically, he's one of the few people who genuinely deserves sympathy.
Alright, I'll admit, I'm an outcast. But I sure am proud of it.

One who does not see the need to socialize with people who are not of the same kind. A person who chooses to lead thier own lives, without the tiresome tag alongs that influence bad ideas upon others.
" I wish not to hang out with most people, because they are not like me in anyway, and I wish not to change the way I am just to fit into their odd worlds, therefore I am an outcast in most eyes."

An individual who is not widely embraced by their peers for various reasons. This lack of acceptance is not always due to outright rejection, but often times from being in unfamiliar surroundings (in which case it usually passes), having a mutual lack of interest, common ground, or initiative.

Social skills definitely have something to do with it, but these are hard to quantify since there are a variety of ways that people relate to others, many of them with considerable success. It really is a matter of whether or not you have found your Feng Shui (figure of speech) in relating to others and have that developed that special "It". "It" is not a given thing (people in circumstancial isolation, such as prison or homlessness, lose their social skills foremost), but comes from

1. Confidence in self-exposure,
2. Practice and Interaction,
3. Analyzing Mistakes

The idea that social skills are naturally endowed stems from a certain type of personality (extrovert) that gravitates toward those three, but anybody who isn't One Hundred Percent happy with being completely alone can become comfortable with these habits.

Don't get rid of that vivd imagination and dynamic mind just because it's an internal trait, but share it with other people in an engaging (meaningful to them) way, and good results can be expected. If not, the problem might be in your environment or with the individuals that surround you. You don't have to be slave to the social structure, but that's no reason to be a slave to lonliness.

Followers of Christ: This issue brings up a responsibility on our part. The stone that the builders rejected becomes the cornerstone, and those who aren't sick have no need of a physician. Just like any other social group, we are also sinners and we tend to exclude others. The only difference with us is that we just happen to be on celestial parole, which is a given privelige, not a hard-earned quality. Remember that we are intended to be recognized for our indescriminate love, not for being so much holier than thou, so be a neighbor to whoever needs it, especially those who are considered lowly in whatever way.

Also realize that "Go forth and make discliples of all nations..." is not a comission to ram your faith down someone's pee-hole and give a Holy "Screw You" to those who don't accept, but an urging to offer a simple invitation: "Will you be a part of this good thing I've found?" Good luck, but remember: Far beyond how many converts you attract is how fervently you have loved your neighbor.

"...if I have not loved, then I am nothing." ~Paul The Apostle
Ridiculing an outcast is like stealing from the desitute.

1. Someone who doesnt belong, and as such is most often seen by themselves or with a friend or two at most.

2. Me
1. There's almost no outcasts at my high school; they're all rich Republicans and buy their friends.

2. I am an outcast and I don't care what you think.

one of the best persons you'll ever meet, they may hurt you but they'll make you happy and they'll make you feel needed in the world. They're good, they need a little help yet they'll always offer theirs for your need. Outcast's name is not describing him, he's really fitting in. He's a great person :)
