On being different

I don't know if I would describe myself as a misfit, but I have frequently felt like I was different. I have been in any number of social situations in which I did not feel that I could connect with others.  I think we all feel this way from time to time.  I think learning to be comfortable in our own skins is the true challenge of adulthood. It's about recognizing that we all belong in the room.  If you have time, listen to Linda Yuknavitch's TED Talk about being a misfit.
