Finding My Place

“I’m trying really hard to get back on my feet and be the person that I know I should be and that I now want to be again. Because of my adventures I have lost many friends and relationships. I distanced myself and now I’m having a hard time getting back in with my group, I think it is mainly because I am no longer the person that I used to be. I have matured and also changed. I think I’m changing for the better, but now that I need to find a place to belong. I don’t have many friends and I want someone I can talk to. I know I need to be more positive and definitely a better person. How can I get back in with those I care about? ~Becky”

Dear Becky,

Through all the journeys, or adventures we take, we all grow in different ways. Some of us grow for the better while others of us grow for the worse. But no matter what adventures we take, all that matters is how we grow. You must find the answer in yourself, “Have I grown for the better at the end of this adventure?” and “Am I ready for the next?”

It sounds like you are growing for the better, and finding a place to belong is something that will sort itself out in time, new relationships will bloom, just keep your eye open. Becoming the person that you want to be is completely up to you. Take a step forward each day and soon you will find your footing.

I know the importance of having a person to talk to and to share life’s joys and struggles with. There is so much happiness and sadness in the world, and the feelings of others many times go unheard. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that you find a friend who’s door and ears are always open to you.

Growing apart from people is one of life’s unavoidable circumstances. But the awareness that you have of yourself and understanding of your need to grow is marvelous. You know where you are and what you need to do. Keep that with you and run with it. If the people that you have lost contact with are truly your friends they will be there for you. Let them know how you feel and that you are sincerely working at making amends. I have a good feeling you will get an unexpected response.

I will keep you in my mind daily and hope you find peace and love,
~John
