Do you fit in?
It’s not unusual to hear parents feel concerned about their children fitting in at school. Even more prevalent is the pressure that school parents feel to fit in with other school parents! Employers also talk about looking for staff who are the right fit for the company.
Fit in: to feel that you belong to a particular group and are accepted by that group:
This need to belong and be accepted actually goes far deeper than just school or work groups. It can be found in families, communities, sporting groups, religious institutions, cities and countries.
In my experience, I have found it is extremely common for people to feel disconnected, misunderstood, alone and sad because they don’t think they belong and/or are accepted by the groups they regularly interact with. In fact, I’ve heard many people say they are finding it harder and harder to make friends, or find like minded people, the older they get. Would you agree with that?
As human beings we need connections with people and the more authentic, honest and easy that connection is, the better.
