Have you recently been feeling this way too? Like you don’t fit in anymore, especially when you know you used to?
Sometimes it is other people changing towards you, but oftentimes, it’s really yourself. When we change inwardly, we can no longer look at people and situations in the same ways. It reminds me of that Door’s song, “People are strange, when you’re a stranger…”
Things have changed dramatically for me in the last few months, but a lot of it has been an inward shift, rather than external conditions (although those have changed to). Right now, there’s only a few people I feel comfortable being myself around, but I also feel the need to listen more than speak. Unfortunately for me, conversation is two ways, not one, and I end up saying things that don’t resonate with other people as much anymore.
These times are ok, both for you, and for me. We are human, and we do change. We grow in consciousness and intellect and spirit. Much of the time it’s gradual, but there are big leaps too. If you’re feeling like you don’t fit in anymore – maybe you don’t.
Maybe you are supposed to not force it, or find different people, or give yourself some time so that when you come back you can fit in with them again. Not fitting in may hurt, but it’s not a bad thing. When you’ve grown the rest of the way you’re supposed to, everything else will fall into place too – I promise.
Let’s be patient together, knowing it’ll all work out well with time. I invite you to grow with me.
