In the last year I’ve learned a really beautiful fact of life. When you live a life that is unequivocally true to who you are, no matter how unconventional, you attract like-minded souls.
We are outliers. We live in a way that most people don’t. The IRS, banks, insurance companies…they don’t know what to do with people like us, we don’t fit the mold. Years ago I would have thought that would make us loners. It turns out the complete opposite is true. We’ve stepped outside the bounds of what society expects of us and in doing so have created some sort of magnetism with others just like us. For someone that has always struggled making friends, it’s been fascinating and delightful to experience.
