When I was young, I didn’t fit in with the the other girls.
Even though we had similar interests. Even though we were in the same grade, on the same team and lived in the same neighborhood.
I was awkward. I was a late bloomer. I wasn’t all that attractive.
I thought I was one of the few who often felt left out.
Looking back, I realize many girls feel this way in what is now called “middle school.”
