I have always felt like I didn’t belong. Like I was a different and just didn’t fit in.
As I have grown and experienced more of life, I have learnt a lot about myself and the world around me.
One thing that I have learnt is that for all those years that I felt like I didn’t fit in with anyone else or didn’t belong, I was not alone.
I now realise that as I looked around at other people, it was my assumption that everyone else had that sense of belonging that I was missing.
What I didn’t see is that most people are trying to fit in, trying to find their place. They were also feeling different or out of place to some degree.
Rather than being focused on finding that sense of belonging in the outside world, I now believe the first, and most important goal, is to find it within ourselves.
When we can do that, when we truly accept ourselves, it doesn’t matter so much what’s happening in the outside world, or who’s there, or what we have, because we will already be living in a state of self love. And when that happens, we attract all those other things to us while still being content with what we do have and where we are in life.
True happiness, true belonging, true acceptance will always be completely within ourselves.
Being comfortable, not only in our own skin but also in our own soul, is a constant cycle of acknowledging, shedding, growing and loving every single layer.
Do you truly love yourself?
