If you feel like an Outsider TPS185

TPS185A lot of people lately have been telling me that they feel like an outsider – like they don’t belong. Because it’s part of their identity, they keep perpetrating stories that allow then to feel like an outsider.

  • Outsiders often dream of being rich or famous, but rich and/or famous people can have as many emotional issues as anyone else, if not more.

  • Outsiders often live in gated communities or become part of tight-knit groups so they can feel they belong.
