Prompt

"Are You a Perpetual Misfit? Name 3 ways that you don’t (and may never) fit in."
- Soul Pancake

Question

What's the next big thing that's going to happen in your life? I'm waiting for my immigration in several months. I hope to take the train to Vancouver and spend a week in my old neighborhood.

I'm going to try a little something here, and just answer these prompts and questions here on the community. I haven't been journaling, and I'm going through some crap, so I definitely need to write. I'm hoping that if I just commit to the very small task of replying to these when I see them, it will spark that desire to write again. Hopefully no one minds?

Prompt: I'm a little too honest, too self-aware, and I care too much. It makes for socially awkward oversharing of feelings and thoughts... and then guilt over not fitting in. Which leads to more introspection. :P It's a terrible cycle.

Question: I'm moving! Across the country! Again! At the end of the month. That's like... two weeks. Oh man. After a year in Seattle, I'm moving back to New Hampshire. 2012 was the heaviest year for me. Divorce has a way of doing that.

I hope you can get a fresh, new start when you move back and that your desire to write comes back. I love your comments :)

fitting in is over rated

I'm torn. Sometimes I want to throw my hands up and say "Look at all the fucks I give", and yet I find that fitting in is essential for me to keep my current job.

One can ostensibly "fit in". Appear to be as is expected.
But the mind is free. We are who we think we are not necessarily the self projected on us by others.
Mentally we don't have to "fit in".
