It's Halloween/Samhain week, y'all! In light of the holiday, I've channeled The Craft for this week's Motivational. I hope you enjoy it as much as my inner 90's kid does!
THIS WEEK'S INTENTION:
FIND YOUR WEIRDOS
I've always been a weirdo. As such, I've had a hard time fitting in with people who aren't weird in the way I am.
I've tried to force friendships out of loneliness just like we probably all have at one point or another. You probably know how awful it feels. I've personally been "friends" with bullies and super-unconscious people because I thought that the deeper part of the friendship would come if I changed myself into who they wanted me to be.
When I met my current "coven," however, it all snapped into place.
- I didn't have to hide my loads of enthusiasm from them; they chimed in!
- I didn't have to pretend I wasn't hurting when I was; they saw through that shit anyway.
- And I didn't have to lock my magic away so they wouldn't make fun of me; they wanted to learn all about it.
When you find your weirdos it feels like home, not like you need to change yourself. Whether it's your group from school, work, the gym or even your recovery friends, you gotta find the people who are weird about the things you're weird about (or at least the ones who celebrate your unique weirdness!).
If you feel like you're lacking with your friends, it could be that they're just not your weirdos...which can be scary. No one wants to be friend-less. You don't have to get rid of the friends you have now in order to make new ones, though.
Go out and find the people doing the things you're weird about! Join a meetup group. Have a deeper convo with that person you always talk to at the gym. You deserve to be celebrated in all your weirdness, however "witch" way it presents itself.
No matter what your weird is, there's a coven out there for you and it's magic when you find it. Wishing you the very weirdest, supportive and most loving friendships there ever were.
Happy Halloween, witches!
