Recently, my bestie was catching me up on all of the drama at her new job in a new city she just moved to. It's been a bumpy transition to say the least, as her new team is very tight-knit and she feels very much like an outsider. She definitely misses "home" and all the comforts and routines she previously took for granted.
We shared stories about the people in our lives - some with whom we get get along and some with whom we don't. We talked about relationships. And about groups and fitting in. We talked about finding yourself alone even when you're in a crowd.
We also talked about finding your voice and your strength when you finally find your tribe. Or when you're finally okay with just standing alone.
