You find yourself with a group of people and you feel like you want to get out! This may be an example of your spidey sense tingling appropriately, but I would not bet on it! More than likely it is a feeling that you do not fit into this situation or that you do not belong. This is the most likely scenario and it is false. If you are there, than you belong and have as much right to be there as anyone else. Trespassing and B&E's aside, what I am talking about here, are human interactions and what we experience on a feeling level.
Now you may feel uncomfortable in numerous settings and want to checkout. I get that, having had that experience recently myself. The good news is that I checked in on the source of the feeling before I checked out. I stayed and no one reacted, though if they did that would have been their issue not mine.
Knowing that you belong gives you a choice. You can choose to stay or to leave instead of letting an unconscious feeling drive you way. Carrying this sense of belonging with you as you walk throughout your day will open doors for you. This is a real opportunity to begin to change how you interact with the world. I venture to say that this single practice will change your life. Are you willing to see how this works for you?
