Knowing where you belong.

Do you really know where you belong? Or are you the type of person who will try and try to fit in. Me? I know what is comfortable and what is not. The only time I get myself in trouble is when I try to fit in.For me it is so easy to just do what I want to do and let others try to fit in. How about you?

I really like the idea. In my life, I tried to fit in with people who are obviously not my level and as a result, it was so stressful and frustrating. Every time I'm with people same level as mine, I'm a lot happier and a lot comfortable. So, I'd stop social climbing and just accept everything as they are.

Life is short and hard.I will certainly take my responsibility for my family and friends,after that I choose things that make me happy to enjoy myself.I always pursue what I really want and choose the one I really love ,not for money,not for status.I do not want to change myself a lot to fit in.

You can't fit in in every respect whenever.You end up not fitting in,so it is better to go your own way.

well, your attitude is great. but have you ever thought of situations that you have to adapt yourself to fit in .? l think there are indeed several circumstances that people must compromise.doing teamwork,for instance.the member of group more or less sacrifice something if they contribute to the group. for me .actually l really am eager to do what l want. but if this happen to influence interest of group, l won" do that.

@angela I have never been in a group where I had to compromise my being. I would just say no and walk away. Lending a hand and making things work is ok but not at the cost of my feeling comfortable with myself.

You should always stay true to who are. In my experience, you always end up unhappy when you are forcing yourself to fit in.

What I didn't know when I was young was that Not fitting in was far better for me , Kelly. I got to do what I wanted , not the group. I formed my own opinions not just followed the group. To this day I can and do say no and mean it. It was all good.

I don't hang out with people I don't fit in with. But if I'm in a situation where I have to, I usually just clam up.

Hi! I have always known myself to be happier with a few people or friends around. I used to be extremely enjoying being alone. I had lived in my own world. Nevertheless, I changed and became sincerely friendly. I can face different types of people with confidence because I always want to be myself. I allow people to enter my world and be my friends if they genuinely like me but I never force myself to anybody. Bottomline is, I admit I am a social being but I still enjoy being alone most of the time.

Sometimes you get agitated where you belong, how to fit in. The where and how??? I came across an article years back and it says that why so important about it. The most important is how much and where that you yourself feel more comfortable of yourself. Be yourself, not to disguise your personality. That's what i did, make me so peaceful.

I have been thinking what should I do and who I want to be last time. But now I realize, thinking is just like dreaming. You have to try to fit in reality first, find a way, peoples or things that fit you the most. Then you will be happy. Experience different type of people will lead you to find a better way to know yourself.
