How To Belong When You Feel Different From Everyone Else
Nov 16, 2022
Do you ever wish you could just belong, but feel different from everyone else? I spent most of my life walking around feeling like I was different from everyone else and never felt like I really belonged. I always felt like the person invited to a party, but I was standing outside looking in through the window at everyone gathered around the table, wishing there was a seat for me. It felt really lonely to feel like I didn’t belong, no matter where I went or what I did. So, how do you belong when you feel different from everyone else?
You know you want to belong, but how do you do that? Choose what table you want to sit at and then decide you want a seat.
How to belong:
- Where do you want to feel like you belong? Get clear on what table you want a seat at. Maybe you love music and are looking for music lovers. Maybe you love art and are looking for art lovers. Whatever it is that you’re interested in and want to feel like you belong. Once you’re clear, decide that you want a seat at the table. Using the examples from above, is there a group of people who enjoy music that you decide you want a seat at their table? Or a group of people who enjoy the same art that you decide you want a seat at their table?
- Now that you’ve chosen what table that you want a seat at, go take a seat! See what they have to offer. You can’t feel like you belong, if you don’t at least take a seat. Set down your fears of feeling so different from everyone else and see what happens.
When I asked myself where I wanted to feel like I belonged, I knew that I wanted to find a group of people who were interested in manifesting just like me. I found Enchanted Life University. I was amazed when I got on that first call. Other people just like me who were interested in manifesting, who were sharing amazing stories of manifesting, asking questions, and celebrating others who were manifesting what they wanted. For a brief moment, I compared myself to others in that group, my feelings of being different from everyone else came up. It was in that moment that I decided I wanted a seat at that table. This is the place where I wanted to feel like I belonged. I wasn’t going to let my fears of being different stand in my way any longer. By deciding I wanted a seat at the table, I finally felt like I belonged.
