Last week's article dealt with how having a creative personality sometimes makes people feel they never fit in. Being creative is not always easy! Have you ever felt this way? How do you cope with it? Has it been a positive or negative experience?

Very Much so Cara !

You stand out like a sore thumb because you have the vision and the energy... then you have to deal with the backward pull of jealousy.

Hi Cara,

Great article! I think one of the worst times for a creative person is at high school - at least it was for me, back in the early 1970s. We had to do so much learning by rote; or we were given a bunch of facts and had to rewrite them as essays. There was nobody who could understand why I was so bored. I really hope things are better for kids now.

Reading Margaret Lobenstine's book 'The Renaissance Soul' was a big help for me. I'd recommend it for any creative person who feels they're out in the cold.

I haven't seen your articles but by reading your article's title i can say that one should be very creative and knowledgeable for writing these kind of articles.

Negative, especially now. In college, I was thankfully with like-minded people. But after graduating, I found that other people don't necessarily understand my viewpoints. :-|

Many, many times, but I've always felt like an outsider, even before I began writing.

It's been both good and bad. It's always wonderful to know what your purpose is, and feel like you're moving towards that purpose. But, sometimes, it seems like it would be interesting to just be, "normal," for lack of a better term.

I have not had a normal life, so I often wonder what it would be like to have had one. I cope by doing what I'm supposed to do: write.

I definitely get odd looks, for lack of a better description, when people find out I write full time and don't have what they deem to be a "real" job. Often, people express surprise that I spend hours everyday writing. I deal with it by explaining that it is my job, and I have to spend my time working at it just as they spend time at their accounting job, or plumbing job, or whatever it is they do!

Many times, yes. But thanks to being inspired by my family, creativity lets me back in easily. Thanks!

I love being a creative, but YES, I have always felt like an alien on my own planet.

Actually, I'm not really convinced I'm entirely human.
