Actually, in all seriousness, I think everyone has felt exiled at one time or another. Sometimes acceptance is hard to achieve. But that shouldn't be a priority. No matter how different you are, or how different everyone thinks you are, it doesn't matter. All that matters is what you think of yourself.
