Your people

March 15, 2019

Know that feeling when you're with a group and everyone is different from you?

It has happened to me often in corporate life. Everybody is so careful not to offend anyone and most people speak very indirectly. Let's just say... that's not my style.

It also happens sometimes at a party. Everybody is having a good time— but you're not.

This doesn't mean you're weird, or different, or a buzzkill. It just means that these aren't your people.

Your people are out there someone, and if you were hanging out with them, you'd be part of the group. You'd be laughing along with everyone else. You'd feel in your element.

So the question is: who are your people?
