If you aren't enjoying the friendship of those around you or it always feels like you're the only one making an effort, it could be beccause you aren't with your tribe yet.
As we meet other people we look for similarities so that we feel like we belong somewhere. Then when we get to know them better we may discover we're not a match after all.
Those encounters aren't a waste of time and indeed those people are perfectly aligned with their own energy. You just learn to pay attention to them by comparing them with those already in your fold.
Do you find yourself doing what your friends do just for the sake of having others like you? As children we are often told who to be friends with and as we listen to others around us we pick up on the energy of us and them and we fall in line with whatever side our family is falling behind.
When you're out in the world as a child and nobody is there to tell you how to act in certain situations, it is the beginning of the baggage you will carry. Your thought patterns look at the outcome and if it's totally against what you've been taught, it causes confusion and fears. You no longer know who to trust and you begin to feel vulnerable and afraid of even your own energy.
You begin to think that if you hadn't done this or said that all would've been better. You berate your own innocence because you don't know how to express your feelings.
In our attempt to conform to society and do and say what is expected we lose sight of our own inner light, our very own personal guidance system and like robots we mimic others.
If you don't mimic what's expected then you are shamed and shunned as an outcast and considered weird, strange, eccentric, not playing with a full deck. We need you to be a follower to the status quo.
Whether you've always conformed or not your heart will urge you throughout your life to shine your light. Voice your perspective. Challenge your beliefs and see if they still hold true.
Embrace all those weird ideas and traits that you want to express. Find ways to allow your creative side to shine into the world. Call out your artisan side and be like a child. We are all artisans. We are all creative beings.
We all have a bit of weirdness in us. The only difference is to the degree that we allow it out and be expressed. When you want to belong and there are folks that light up your spark focus on what they offer you. Then, rather than make it a comparison just ask your own heart, 'What can I do or day right now that would bring joy to my heart?'
Then watch your world become the perfect stage for your own unique and loving performance. Listen to your heart and use your mind and spirit to help unfold your best role yet.
Happy Wednesday, Love-Lights. May this day serve you well.
Love and blessings, Dallas.
