You’re not alone, and here’s why.

Have you ever felt completely and utterly alone? If you have, I can guarantee that you’re not the only one who has ever felt that way.
I remember one of those times that really stands out for me. I was about to graduate from college with a social work degree.
It seemed that a number of my fellow social work students knew which area of social work in which they wanted to work. That wasn’t the case for me, though.
Although I enjoyed my internship in the mental health field, I wasn’t sure that I could even get a job in that field. Also, I wasn’t even sure that a social work career was for me.
I felt completely alone with my feelings. Everyone else seemed so confident, and they seemed to know which direction their lives would take. After some time had passed, I realized that I wasn’t alone.
In our society, there is a lot of pressure to figure out exactly what we want to do with the rest of our lives. However, that’s not necessary. In fact, it is very common to struggle with this decision and even change careers several times. If you feel that you haven’t quite found your place in life yet, there’s a good chance that you know of at least one person who’s going through the same thing. Instead of worrying needlessly and feeling isolated, maybe you can support and encourage each other.

I don’t fit in, and neither do you.

Have you ever felt as though you do not fit into society’s norms and expectations? It took me several years to realize that it’s okay.
You were created that way, and so was I. Many of us grew up with parents who were doing the 9 to 5 thing and trying to fit into the neat little boxes that were set out for them. Then, you come along. You may have been told that you’re too sensitive, too shy, or even weird. Maybe you have even been mislabeled as having one or more psychiatric conditions. Maybe you have even tried so hard to please others and to fit in that you actually developed one of those conditions.
Then, you may have decided that the 9 to 5 thing wasn’t really for you, so you ventured out into the unknown while you may have been told to get a real job and get it together.
Guess what? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with you. There is nothing wrong with the people in your life, either. They are doing the best they can with what they know, and so are you. You did not come here to fit into someone else’s box. You came here to be of service in your own unique way.

What does it mean to live from the heart?

When you are truly living from your heart, it can be scary, but it can also be filled with joy and excitement. It requires us to give up the tendency to play it safe. In order to live from the heart, we must reach for our own dreams and desires despite what others may think. It’s not always an easy path to walk, but it’s definitely a rewarding one. It requires a great deal of faith in yourself as well as the divine, and it requires a great deal of humility because we are bound to make mistakes along the way.
However, if we live from the heart, we will find freedom because we are no longer bound by the expectations of others. Instead, we are discovering our true divine natures and living by our own expectations. If we follow our hearts, we can do what we came to this earth to do. I’m not suggesting that this path is always smooth, but I encourage you to give it a chance.
