I'm neither the black sheep nor white sheep. I'm not a sheep. People in my family are all equal. If you are or think you are a black sheep in your family, know that you are probably exactly what they need in their lives. If everyone was a white sheep, they would have no one to talk about. Diversity is what makes things great. Always share your views with those white sheep. They will learn something.

I am not. I am thinking it is my brother lol. Although I know my brother can be kind and nice, I can always see him hard headed. He always wants to do what he wants and forget our advice. He seldom listen to us that is why he always commit mistake which lead to arguments. He is young , a teenager. If we fail to change his manner I believe he will be the black sheep of the family which I don't want to happen.

Probably. Although I was an only child I was pretty different from my cousins and other people in my family. Not too bizarre but different. I went the hippy route and my cousins were straight laced and never much of adventurers. I wasn't an outcast by any means but I did go my own way.

I wouldn't say I'm the black sheep, but I must be plaid or something, because I don't have much in common with them and they don't bother to invite me to their homes.

I think that I am a white sheep and the rest of my family are black sheep because quite frankly they are all a tad strange. My family is very dysfunctional and not quite like everybody else. I have a sister who is relatively ‘normal’ like me and I thank God I have her because no one would ever believe how weird my parents are!

I guess I can consider myself to be the black sheep of the family now. I used to be the most favored one, until I got married against my parents wishes, to a man not of the same race as ours. I don't know when my parents will ever truly accept us but then I feel like it is my life and I have the right to decide to whom I will get married to. In a similar manner, my sibling's kids are currently more favored compared to my kids.

I think I am now in my family since I've made a few mistakes and it was nothing that you couldn't learn from, nothing criminal though. I just made a few bad choices with things in my life and most of my family lives on it forever and I hate it. My mom says shes proud of me but I don't know. Sometimes it doesn't seem like it and since I don't know my dad and never have than he doesn't have an opinion in the matter. I feel like I am to his family though since I didn't meet them until I was 15 years old. I try not to let my family down and show them I'm trying to figure things out in my life and make it better but sometimes I feel like giving up because I feel as if it's getting me nowhere and I hate that.

Black Sheep? I have heard of the phrase for the first time. I am not sure whether I am a black sheep in my family or not. You know, I am the only son of my father and my parents have paid much attention to my daily life. Then, I have to try my best to not let them down. From this point of view, it seems that I am not a black sheep. haw-haw! Have a nice day.

No one has ever told me I was the black sheep of the family so I would have to say I am not. I am not sure who is consider the black sheep of the our family. I tired not to say things against people in my family and do not listen to the gossip of someone else.

I'm not sure if they actually think of me as the black sheep but I am the oddball of the family. I am nothing like alot of my family. I am mainly by myself because of it also.

My ex-husband was the black sheep in his family and I have to say that he earned that title. In his father's eyes my children and I were also black sheep and got treated as such. In my own family growing up, I'd have to say that my brother and I took turns sharing that title. In my opinion...he earned the trophy.

Hello Jugs. Well, I guess so. Everybody says I am the black sheep. I try to be nice to everybody. I help them in the ways I can. I take care of evrything in the house as best i can. Still, they call me black sheep. I don't quite know why. May be they think that they are all better than me ! Ha ha ! It's ok. I will let them think what they like to think. Have a nice day !
