I am a self-declared weirdo. In elementary school I desperately wanted to be one of the cool kids even though I had a belief that I was too weird to be accepted by them. I saw how they had this tribe-hood and I wanted in. It seemed from the outside that they were never lonely because they had all these people that were a part of their group. I was never invited to be a member of that group and never tried to form my own group. I was lonely…until high school.
Somehow a group of high schoolers who were as weird as me disguised as super smart kids who were at the top of the class, cheerleaders, sports stars, dancers, leads in the school musicals, singers, burnouts, artists and rebels all came together to form a tribe. We would meet before school for breakfast and wear bagels around our necks all day. We hung out after school and on the weekends. We went on vacations to the Jersey Shore together. We went on camping trips. We had sleepover parties. It was awesome!!!! Those beautiful souls were my first taste of being in a tribe.
As an adult I have found my tribe again. Because of the unconditional love I feel from my tribe I find myself making braver and braver choices in my life. I show them all the parts of me even my shadow side which makes them love me even more. They love the whole me, not just the pretty parts. I feel safe to share what’s true for me. I give support and I receive it. With my tribe by my side I know I can do anything I put my heart into because I have their unconditional support.
