In or Out

I would imagine, if you are like most of us, there have been times when you felt like you were on the outside looking in.  On the other hand, you may have felt like you were on the inside looking out.  Either way, you may have felt trapped or left out of the action, so to speak.  It’s a lonely feeling and one none of us really like.

I think the key to dealing with those kinds of feelings is to recognize a simple reality for all of us.  Sometimes we are in and sometimes we are out.  It is just a fact of life.  For every time there is an “in” there is the opposite, an “out.”  It’s like Newton’s third law states that when two bodies interact, they apply forces to one another that are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. The third law is also known as the law of action and reaction.  There’s no denying it so we should deal with it.

Here’s a thought as to how.  Don’t think feelings of in or out.  Think about the opportunities available right where you are.  There is always something good in every situation.  Find it and act on it.  All of a sudden you will find you are “out” of one feeling and “in” a different and more positive state of mind and action!
