You are not for everyone

You are not for everyone. I repeat.

You are not for everyone.

It is okay to notice or feel like you don’t fit in somewhere.

We all strive to be liked and fit in with every job or culture that we encounter, though this will not always be the case. We aren’t meant to be for everyone.

What it comes down to is if the opinion of the people you don’t mesh with matters. Ask yourself: Do I even like them? Or am I just seeking approval?

Uncovering these answers can help shift your mindset about fitting in. It certainly helped me last week when I started to lament not fitting in somewhere. I realized the hurt came from not being invited and I wouldn’t have even agreed to participate if asked! I laughed at myself when I noticed this and understood myself more. I was able to let go of the hurt and move on. Also, I reminded myself that it is perfectly fine to not fit in! Simply focus on your people, the people that do matter.

While on your journey, I wish you have the courage to be disliked. To come to terms with not being everyone’s cup of tea. And most of all the ability to know who matters most to you.

Love and light. ❤️
