Yep. Me too.
I grew up never really feeling like I fit in anywhere. Sure, I have friends and I love them dearly but for the most part, I just always wondered why I felt alone even when I was with a bunch of other people.
It’s the same for me now. Even with my middle-aged ass … I STILL feel like I don’t fit in. Like in most places.
But now I know what that’s all about. And I LOVE the fact that I don’t fit in.
Wanna know why? Because I SHOULDN’T!!! And maybe you shouldn’t either!
What I have figured, is that I’ve always been a terrible follower. I just didn’t do the things other people wanted to do and especially the stuff they wanted ME to do.
This was a huge issue for me growing up because my father demanded utter compliance and blind obedience, but I just wasn’t that child. This caused me such conflict, chaos and discord in my life growing up years that I almost gave in, just to end the abuse.
But I didn’t because in my heart, I KNEW I was here for something better, something bigger and following the herd wouldn’t get me to my soul’s purpose.
Giving in to peer pressure and my familial pressure to be vanilla and to blend in, wouldn’t get me there.
I stood in my truth and took the beatings, the threats and the verbal abuse. I was born a rebel and I still am even though it has cost me people that I thought were important. Now that I’m a grown up (most days anyways), I know better.
I know that the people I lost? Weren’t MY people.
That the people I tried to get to accept me, are not MY people.
That MY people are the unicorns, the rebels, the outliers, the envelope pushers, the rule breakers, the dreamers and the bad asses.
So, I’m asking you, do you feel like you don’t fit in where you’re trying to?
