Yes, I am wired a bit differently than most and as a child I was pegged as "odd" and "weird" - even by a few teachers! I used to feel ashamed and like a freak that didn't fit in.
It wasn't until I grew up I began to value the beauty and uniqueness of those who are "weird". Weird was no longer an insult, but a complement. Yep, I'm wired differently. I am socially awkward, I have always been and always will be. I believe we tend to feel outcast because so much of our lives we are taught/forced to "conform" to be like others -etc. How boring! I always heard "If only you'd make eye contact more" "If only you'd stop being so shy!" etc. I also learned as I got older there is a reason for my odd social skills set - and it isn't merely because I'm "shy". Unfortunately people mistake a lack of outgoing friendliness as aloof, distant, "strange" etc. I must be uncaring or unfeeling. That isn't the case of course :) but people who have a common expectation put all kinds of labels on people they don't understand.
Some of the most eccentric people were the most brilliant - Einstein is the prime example here of an "odd duck" who was incredibly gifted. What an impact he made on the world for being such a weirdo huh? ;)
Embrace diversity everywhere - within yourself and within others, it's what makes the world such a fascinating place. You're never alone, someone somewhere has had a similar thought and they probably feel the same way - like a weird minority of one.
