This weekend The Husband and I participated in our third bike ride with a group. I enjoyed going out and meeting other people. We all met at a bike shop in Atlanta. I was super excited to once again be around people who shared a passion that I have. I was even more excited to meet new people. Although I am a bit of an introvert I still like to meet new people. So it felt really great to just be around people. It was really nice. I had fun riding with the group even though we got left behind. Those people ride fast. It will take a few times riding with the group before I am able to keep up.
I had so much fun but I realized that I still want to fit in. I want to be accepted by this group of people. They were really welcoming. You could tell most of the people had been riding bikes for awhile. I was nervous as heck. Cause I just want to be apart of this group. I don’t think wanting to be accepted never goes away. I know it’s okay if I am not accepted by this group and that there are other groups but it would hurt if I wasn’t. It won’t make my life any better or worse. It’s just nice to just belong.
It kind of annoys me that I still want to fit in. I mean aren’t we adults shouldn’t that have been left in school. But I think as much as we pretend that we don’t care what people think about us we all want to fit in somehow. In some areas of our lives we actually have to be liked because if we aren’t liked then it can affect us. Like if you aren’t liked at your job or you just don’t fit in you can actually lose your job. I don’t think anyone will ever fully not care that they don’t fit in. But as long as where I fit in is healthy I guess it’s okay . I mean there is nothing wrong with wanting to fit in right?
