So I have been at my new job for a month, and I'm having problems. I am a major minority at work and it is really hard for me to fit in. Everything I have to say or my way of life is just ridiculous to my "friends." My friends say they're not racist, but then make racial comments all the time. Every job I have had I feel so alone because I am so much younger than everyone else. My job now has some people in my age group, but I still don't fit in. I talked to my boyfriend about it and he said just do your job and go home. As simple as that sounds, I feel so lonely at work. Everyone needs a friend. Even though I hang out with some ladies at work, it's like they really don't want me around. I don't have any friends outside of work either. High school was a nightmare for me and I only went to college for a year and a half. I guess I just thought I could finally have a friend at work and I don't. People are nice to me and stuff, but I just feel like the little white girl tagging along. I don't really think they want me around.
