There is a person (or maybe several) in every family that just doesn't get along with anyone or tends to get themselves into trouble in one way or another. In my family, we have several on each side of the family....we love them anyway though!

When I was home,it used to be my sister. Now that I'm married, we don't have one yet. Our daughter is only 4 months. So, we'll see who is it going to be in few months when she get to walk and talk. Although, I think our cat could be the black sheep of the family. She gets into stuff that we don't want her to get into and we have to keep our food away from her because she'll eat it.

LMAO. That's pretty funny that the cat is the black sheep. Give your daughter about 8 more months (if that) and she will no doubt out sheep your cat. Thanks Lydia!

Me I suppose, even though I didn't do anything wrong. I am just different as I don't conform to their rules.

Technically that would in deed make you a black sheep. But, I'm not so sure being the black sheep is always a negative thing. I think it's cool that you "march to your own drum" so to speak. You're not afraid to be different; to live your life according to your own rules and that's commendable as long as you're not doing yourself or anyone else harm. Thanks for posting!

I would say I am the black sheep but I'm not the one who got in trouble or caused trouble. I am the calm one who kinda stays to myself and has a good head on my shoulders.Unlike my sister and brother. Maybe I'm the white sheep

Yeah, it sounds like you're the white sheep or maybe the neutral sheep lol. I find that it's usually better to just keep my mouth shut. Thanks for posting!

I can't think of any white sheep! Pretty much everyone in my family, on both sides, is a mess of some sort. So I guess that makes us a family of black sheep. Whee!

Hahaha. Sometimes I think my family is exactly like that, but there are certain members that stand out over others in the black sheep category. Thanks for posting!

I guess you could call me the black sheep. However, my family don't really mind all that much. But, my cousin if growing into a bit of a black sheep as well, and we get along great. I NEVER get into trouble, I'm just different from everyone else in the family.

I have to say, growing up, it was a tie between me and my brother;) People used to call us "thick as theives". But I think we were more "lovable" black sheeps because the other members of our family didn't think of us as "outcasts" and couldn't really help but laugh about some of the stuff we'd get into-lol I think we'd be the black sheeps just because no one else ever really did anything but us. Now we're more grown up I guess, but I know exactly who to call if I'm feeling bored;)

That's funny. My sister and I were like that too, but our older cousin Jenn would usually dream up the ideas and we would be her "sheep" so to speak, following her without question. We may have been a bit unruly, but, you know what, I look back on those years and I wouldn't change a thing! I bet your brother knows just who to call as well. Thanks for sharing!

There is no black sheep in my family. Everybody in my family is a white sheep. Everybody is individual and does what they want. If there was a black sheep in my family. I would have known by now.

When I was younger, I was a black sheep and always in trouble, and I hurt my family; but I changed, and now I am trying hard to be a decent human being. It's hard, but I am going to keep on trying to be a person who makes my family proud of me.

When I was younger, I was always getting myself into trouble, and was something of a black sheep, but I changed. Now I try very hard to be decent, pleasant, civil with everyone; and it's worked. There are people who really appreciate the way I've tried to become a better person. It's been terribly hard, and still is, but I'm not going to stop trying to become the best person.
