View Full Version : Are you the black sheep in your family?

December 30th, 2008, 8:08 PM
Haha, I sure as hell am. XD
I'm an only child, but I live with two perfect as hell cousins (One is a singer/model, and one is a singer/perfect little brat.) so I look really bad next to them. >.<
I also have no talent. I tried piano, didn't work out. NOT gonna try singing, and sure as hell won't be a model. Well, one talent is being able to punch people REALLY hard. But, I have no talent, that according to my parents, is "useful". Hell, punching people is useful. I once gave the most annoying guy in the class a bloody nose. His mom now hates me and calls me a "juvenile delinquent." B*tch kicked my backpack! >:(

Well, where do you stand? You the perfect kid or are you looked down upon?

December 30th, 2008, 8:56 PM
I'm kinda looked down upon...

I should be, but I hide everything I could get kicked out of the house for from my ridiculously conservative parents. I make good grades, so they like me, but they wonder why I never talk to them. :V

December 30th, 2008, 9:41 PM
I'm definitely not perfect, but my sister and my uncle are the black sheeps of our family. KInda thankful for that =]

December 30th, 2008, 9:46 PM
Hehe. If my parents were alive right now I would have been the black sheep of my family. I am too naughty and not serious.

December 30th, 2008, 9:48 PM
Depending what you mean by Black Sheep.

Even if I am the oldest, I still feel treated like an idiot around the house. I get punished for the mistakes of my Bro "Because I'm the older one". Well what the hell? Didn't you say I could ignore that brat? :/

Every few months my dad comes check out my PC for no reason at all, and he keeps complaining "You have spyware all over, this is a virus, don't download junk! This is diguised PenDejo!" I admit the Zango case was a mistake but... how the fudge are a few games and image editing software classified as Spyware? Just because I have a million desktop Icons doesn't mean I have junk and viruses. And just because I enjoy the way my PC is doesn't mean he can call me a pendejo. Sometimes I feel like he's the one making the mistakes and messing up by himself (He is 51, what else did you expect?).

And my brother is plainly a Football field large shard of hell, period.

Being the oldest is just too much pressure. If I was an only child, maybe I would feel better about my position in the family.

December 30th, 2008, 10:47 PM
I'm anything but a black sheep. >_> I get the good grades, I'm fit, and I don't bother my parents. The thing is, they don't leave me alone. Even being the 2nd oldest out of 4, I'm never left alone. Sigh. Wish I could be on the computer all day. Way better than exercising. -yes I'm a geek- v__v

I'm definitely not the 'black sheep' of my family. I get decent grades (I should be doing better, but, to be honest, I really could careless right now...), I plan on going to an university, I plan on getting a good job. So no - I'm not the black sheep.

December 30th, 2008, 11:23 PM
I might just be. I am always MIA when it comes to family gatherings and when family want to contact me I'm hard to get in touch with. My family is really shady so I try to avoid it all together. I am close with my immediate family but as far as intermediate, I'm definitely the black sheep.

Careful With That Axe, Pichu!
December 30th, 2008, 11:25 PM
I'm the purple with yellow dots sheep in my family.

December 30th, 2008, 11:39 PM
I am as well, but I try to hide most of it. Whenever I truly express how I feel, my dad just laughs it off and tells me I'm not serious. Whenever I argue back he just laughs some more. He never believes me about anything and is insanely religious, so I never tell him anything since he's so closed and biased against my belief's and thoughts.

December 30th, 2008, 11:54 PM
I'm not perfect and we're not. I'm just one of the silent types who waits for a miracle to happen.

December 31st, 2008, 12:28 AM
Not really, but it's mostly because I'm the "smart guy" of the family so my grades usually shield my imperfections...which I don't quite get but okay. My parents (well, my mom) overblow my talents to the extreme and my dad is like "well yea good job" so it's kind of weird o_O But eh, I'm used to it.

December 31st, 2008, 12:30 AM
I'm not a perfect kid, nor am I looked down upon.

If I was a perfect kid, I probably wouldn't be repeating ninth grade. But, I'm pretty sure it's my dream-pursuing attitude and general attitude that keeps me from being looked down upon.

So I guess I'm the gray sheep of my family? Haha.

December 31st, 2008, 7:20 AM
Well, my Mom, Dad, Sister, both my Nans, and both my Grandads, have brown or black hair, and I have blond. No, I'm not adopted, just... skipped a few generations?

I'm proboly the black sheep, I don't do as well as my sister in school, and I don't care as much as I should about it. I prefer the cold to the hot, everyone else in my family prefers the hot. I'm not a saint, and I spose I like it that way, I have too much fun to care ;P

I'd say I'm the grey sheep, I'm not normal, but I'm not the black sheep, not quiet.

December 31st, 2008, 8:02 AM
I'm usually considered the most normal one in my family (much to my friends' surprise). I was a cheerleader/honor student in high school and I'm a sorority girl in the honors college of my university. The only thing I do that raises any eyebrows in my family is that I like the get piercings and I have quite a few. I just try and keep them discrete so I don't get harassed by my family about them.

I would have to be pretty nuts to be an outcast in my family. No one has any room to judge anyone else.

December 31st, 2008, 9:14 AM
Yes. Very. Mostly its because everyone in my family is very religious, while I am quite the opposite. Oh well. I'll probably be one of those kids that moves out and only visits around christmas time. :/

December 31st, 2008, 9:18 AM
Most def XD

My parents often call me weird. They say they're joking but after saying it for the 100th time you tend to think they're not XD

I dont care though, I like who I am and my parents don't have a problem with it...well appart from the fact that if I bring one more statue or action figure home they're gonna bin them all XP

I'm the only person in my family who's alive (and that I know of) that can draw and is in University. All the rest of my family kinda dropped out or didn't bother going XP

No. o_O That is like calling George Bush smart. :o My cousin who is in the army now is.. :O

December 31st, 2008, 9:43 AM
Yes i would be cos I use the computer 24/7 and rarely talk to anyone, and they don't talk to me much either. -_-

December 31st, 2008, 10:42 AM
My family hates me, and most of the time I hate them.
I'm the black sheep.

December 31st, 2008, 11:04 AM
My parents surely think I am. They're always telling me how they think they picked up the wrong kid at the hospital. Maybe it's because I can spend hours in front of the computer on the same website without any food, drinks or company...

By far, I'm the black sheep in my family. To them I'm weird and almost foreign simply because I'm interested in things they don't understand or are afraid of more or less. :\ Everyone else thinks I'm just an oddball, and they mean it.

For example, I'm an atheist while my parents are very Christian (my dad at least, my mom could care less either way). I'm also into things such as computers and video games, which they just don't quite get the idea behind my interest.

Regardless, I don't care about what they think. I'm just glad that my friends and my brother accept me and enjoy me for who I am. Not only that, but my mom appears to be accepting me more and more. I guess my dad just won't completely understand me, not even on the day he dies.

December 31st, 2008, 12:16 PM
My only other boy cousin is a billion years older than me, so it is usually me with all of my girl cousins. So, yes, I guess I am to some extent.

December 31st, 2008, 1:37 PM
Hmmmm I'm not really sure about in my family, we seem a more normal branch of the family.

Outside of my family though, I'm always the blacksheep, both online and offline.


December 31st, 2008, 1:39 PM
I guess I'm the black sheep in this respect:

My mother's family are farmers.
My dad's family were shepherds (now in the business of transport and quarrying).

I'm an IT Technician \o/

Also, all of my generation has been two children, and I'm the only single child.

December 31st, 2008, 2:12 PM
Hmm I don't think I am. I get on well with my brothers and sisters, we have our arugments like everyone else, but we get on well. Although my parents think I'm weird for liking Pokemon and anime in general, all of us are weird in our way, I think. My family are the most important people to me. I don't ever see my cousins because they either live in America or Birmingham or somewhere.

i'm a bubble. pop me.
December 31st, 2008, 2:43 PM
No, I wouldn't say I am... No member of my immediate family is - at least I think no one feels like beeing a black sheep. Even others not-so-immediate family members i know seem not to be in my eyes. I hope none of them feels that way.:paranoid:

December 31st, 2008, 3:02 PM
I'm definitely not the black sheep in my family, though it's not all too great. I'm constantly grilled on my homework: when I get a B on anything, my family tells me "Why the B? Are you slacking? Maybe you're on the computer too much, you should go get extra help!" Everyone has terribly high expectations of me, and I always feel like I have a ton of bricks on my shoulder trying to meet them. I may have things going for me, but it's not a walk in the park. :/

December 31st, 2008, 3:10 PM
All you people that hate your family suck. Go an make up with them right now!

December 31st, 2008, 3:21 PM
Well, I tend to stay away from my family, usually keeping things to myself on the computer and don't do many social activities. Although my brother is like that too.
Really, I think that noone is a black sheep of any family, everyone is different when it comes to family life so either everyone is the black sheep, or noone is.

December 31st, 2008, 4:32 PM
No way I have a cousin that has like been to drug court, has like a wife, a kid, and he is like only 17 years old, and he has a second kid on the way but he doesn't even know if the kid is his, and then his sister is like deluded and she thinks that she is gonna "make it" in New York City, and her parents are like paying for everything there, I laughed so hard when she had to move from the city into Queens. lol

December 31st, 2008, 5:58 PM
....Not at all. I'm the only person who has any "useful" talent in my family... xD; I'm an okay singer, I can draw, photograph, I'm a graphics artist, I play several different instruments... my brother plays 2 and he's a junior.
I love it. Dad always going "why can't you be more like your sister"
...It's funny 8D

December 31st, 2008, 6:09 PM
I'm not looked down upon, nor am I looked up upon. I'm just.. a child and I love my family and they love me. We don't have standings, and we won't for a long, long time... if ever. If we did, I wouldn't be looked down upon. My family said I have a good talent at sport and if I tried, I could get anywhere with any sport. I've been asked to go play State Basketball and I turned that down because at the time, something came up.

December 31st, 2008, 7:07 PM
Depending what you mean by Black Sheep.

Even if I am the oldest, I still feel treated like an idiot around the house. I get punished for the mistakes of my Bro "Because I'm the older one". Well what the hell? Didn't you say I could ignore that brat? :/

Every few months my dad comes check out my PC for no reason at all, and he keeps complaining "You have spyware all over, this is a virus, don't download junk! This is diguised PenDejo!"

And my brother is plainly a Football field large shard of hell, period.

Being the oldest is just too much pressure. If I was an only child, maybe I would feel better about my position in the family.

That's exactly what I'm through now. Besides the computer part because well no one in my family understands computers so I'm lucky about that.

January 1st, 2009, 9:45 PM
I'm an only child, but in comparison to my general family? I'm definately the black sheep. Because I'm not a fan of "fahionable clothes" and "fashionable lifestyles". I suppose my grades are pretty good, though. And I can play an instrument. Actually, I am really different from my family... OH MY GOD, MAYBE I'M ADOPTED!
Or not.

January 1st, 2009, 9:52 PM
My family doesn't hate me, but I am radically different from any of them, my sexuality, religious views, way of being is all different

January 1st, 2009, 10:08 PM
I'm rude, lazy and refuse to be invovled in many things... The black sheep indeed.

January 2nd, 2009, 12:04 AM
Yeah, in some ways, I am.

My father yells at me every chance I get for no reason. He always tells me I'm worthless and can't do anything and will never get anywhere in my life. And his parents (my grandparents) dislike me and what I want to be when I grow up- an animator.

I'm lucky enough though that my mom cares about me and always sticks up for me and my other family members including my brother are nice to me.

January 2nd, 2009, 12:06 AM
I am not the black sheep but I am different enough to be the purple lizard. Probably the only one who cannot bear to be part of the family

January 2nd, 2009, 9:01 AM
Yeah and I feel as if I'm under appreciated. :B

I'm the oddball of the group. I'm sort of a "middle" child, as I have an older brother and younger twin brother (1 minute apart). My twin brother always receives the cooler toys and just breaks mine (I'm still upset over the Barbie house and dolls.. You don't want to know xD).

Even though I'm creative, pretty, and intelligent, I'm lazy and stubborn. They pick fun at my mess of a room and how I would sleep in till noon. They'll go eww when I sneeze/sniffle but they don't like it when I mess with them when they're sick. They'll blame me for anything even when I didn't do it; for instance, I got in trouble for looking at "porn" when I was watching anime and it was not even anything. They believed my brother over me. I've seen those babes he's been looking at.. I never cuss or lie to them yet they would to me. I don't succumb to their shenanigans; I wouldn't even drink Champagne on New Years. I have no remarkable talent, but if I tried anything, I could do it perfectly.

My mother calls me a burden. A strong word like that should explain everything. I don't hate, can't hate, but it's uber annoying.

January 2nd, 2009, 6:57 PM
I'm technically the "perfect" one, (not to brag) I get A's in school, am in accelerated classes, in the advanced lesson groups for orchestra, in advanced orchestra itself, in studio art, technically advanced art, and I sing well. Ugh, I hate when I sound like I'm bragging, but technically I'm what you might call the "perfect little brat". I try not to act bratty though. However, I'm also usually the one people tend to use, as in projects, to get all the work done for them, and I'm used to taking the blame for things because people know that I likely won't argue my case. For some reason, I tend to be ignored during rehearsals for the singing group I'm in, though it doesn't bother me, and I've got a group of friends, but all save for one of them are considered "average" in terms of grades.

I'm the black sheep hands down, I'm the only guy in both families (long story, DONT ASK!) that likes metal AND techno. I have black hear, a lot of acne, and currently the only guitarist yet and also have been diagnosed with Asperger's Sydrome and have different intrests (my family is boring, they practically like the same things!).

I am completely different to the rest.

January 3rd, 2009, 4:25 AM
Guess I am a black sheep.

My papa and mama are good at science and computer stuff. My brother is good at everything. My sister is interested in anything and everything, she's still pretty young, but have the potential to learn anything.

I'm just not interested in anything~ Hope I wont turn out to be a big disappointment for my parents. I'm still happy, I mean.

RAWR ^_^
January 3rd, 2009, 4:51 AM
Strictly speaking, I shouldn't be, I have a few useful talents such as being good at music in general, I get really good grades and frequently top of the class In Subjects such as R.E, English, Maths and History. Yet, I'm often cut-off from the others because I really find nothing interesting about my family, I'm the oldest of them all and don't really see eye to eye with them. If were arguing and I bring up a valid point, My parents ignore it and carry on.

January 3rd, 2009, 5:00 AM
Nope. Im the kid everyone loves and treats well cause he si well mannered and such a good kid. I hate that though as im not. i clearly have bad grades give a rats ass about certain things and i do very naughty things. By naught i mean i play with fireworks and do other neerdowell stuff.

January 3rd, 2009, 3:23 PM
I think I am the only one who hates football in my whole family (including distant and not so distant relatives), although my brother isn't a big fan of it! I get on with my family despite this though! Lol!

January 3rd, 2009, 9:05 PM
yes and no.

honestly, to everyone who's actually seen me do something, they think i'm amazing; talented, smart, etc. then there are my aunts who decided to judge me by the fact i play video games; "you'll never achieve anything in your life. you'll fail school, we know it! you have no talent because you play video games! trash like you should die! you aren't even pure vietnamese, and your dad is practically a hooker!"

... but i don't listen to them, 'cause i'm an a/b student and they were c students. they can't draw, no one likes them, they don't know what design and fashion are, and etc etc etc. they're gross; eat and talk at the same time, lack manners. they're also quite closed minded and racist. also, my dad isn't who i am. ugh.

January 5th, 2009, 1:08 PM
I'm not necessarily the black sheep, as I get way higher grades than my cousins, but I don't really play sport. Still, though, I'm held in higher ranks than my other cousins. My mother was also like me. She aced every test at school and was the favourite of the family. Kinda like me...

January 5th, 2009, 2:39 PM
my family doesnt really think of anyone in the family as a "black sheep " im not a goodie 2 shoes or anything but im not a bad person.... i wouldent say im perfect though, i guess im thought upon equally just as much as everyone in the family is...

January 5th, 2009, 2:58 PM
I'm the outcast in my family :p

January 5th, 2009, 9:03 PM
I wouldn't say I'm the Black Sheep of the family, but i am most certainly the outcast, i am the only person in my family to have got to collage/university, I'm the only one to leave are home town (of which i have no plans to return), I'm the only one who hasn't decided that the first job they get they are keeping for life (yes i don't think any of my family have ever quit or been fired from a job), and I'm the only one to actully want to do something exciting with my life (which is why I'm training to be an actor), which i think is why most of my family (mostly on my Dad's side) alway look down on me, they way my Granddad treats me because of it you would think i murdered someone =( well all part of the reason i left i guess.

January 6th, 2009, 1:46 PM
If I'm not a black sheep, then Osama bin Laden is the queen of England.

January 6th, 2009, 1:49 PM
I'm the youngest so I get treated with the least respect. If I bring up something slightly controversial I'll get funny looks and even laughs..

January 6th, 2009, 2:31 PM
My family doesn't accept concepts such as 'black sheep', and there isn't anything of the sort in it either. However, if I had been born to any other people and maintained the same personality, it's all too possible that I would have been a black sheep. I'm not, though, but I'm not 'the perfect one' either- I get good grades and I can draw but my family aknowledges my blatant flaws as well. Nobody else would appear to be thought of as a black sheep as well, so I suppose it's a good balance.

January 7th, 2009, 4:52 PM
I am definitely the weirdest in my family.

January 7th, 2009, 5:27 PM
I wouldn't say I'm the black sheep, more the pitiable sheep. I'm the youngest, which means I'm an idiot. and I have some of the most perfect cousins: One of them did an accelerated course for maternal nursing in college, got an 'A' in that (somehow surviving her intense workload) and is successful and making loads of money. The other is going to college sudying psychology, and will surly make more money in a week than I'll earn in a year. The third also did an accelerated learning course for nursing, helped people in Zimbabwe and South Africa, and now works in St Louis. They were all also straight A students through both middle and high school, and were all star athletes for softball, swimming and basketball. Meanwhile, ol' DC plans to be a steelworker, gets average (A-C) grades, and has average skills in soccer. At least I've got some company- another promising cousin got a scholarship for soccer, but then unfortunately somehow got rhumatoid arthritis.

January 7th, 2009, 5:46 PM
No, because I'm an only child.

But I'm the most weird in my family. :D
