Out of Place


In the last week or so I have heard at least 5 different people saying they feel out of place.

People who are out of place feel dislocated, unwanted, and somehow trapped in a really hopeless way. They don’t belong to the place where they are. Frustration is always present. What am I doing here? That is what they all wonder. So you think: if you don’t know what you’re doing here, then go somewhere else! Sure, clever one. Problem is that as humans, we have that stupid habit of creating ties and bonds wherever we go. It is interesting how these misplaced persons perceive no mental connection or support from their environment, but can distinctively identify the bonds, that become obstacles in the end.

How to avoid these feelings then? Stepping out and running away from that spiral should help. Spin it. Everybody deserves to feel in place. So look for your one, whatever it means to you, whatever it takes, wherever it is.
