Do I belong here?

Everyone at some time of another feels “out of place.”

“Out of place” is when you feel different from everyone around you. You feel like you don’t belong.

Examples:

“I felt out of place in the nightclub. Everyone was much younger than me.”

“My friend felt out of place at the party. He didn’t know anyone there.”

“Young-hee sometimes felt out of place when she studied abroad. She was the only Korean in her classes.”

“I felt out of place at the meeting. I was the only person not wearing a suit and tie.”

In life, it is easy to feel out of place. People seem older than you, younger than you, smarter than you, better looking than you, etc.

Don’t worry about it. Just smile and be yourself!
