While not one to seek popularity, I have definitely not glided through life feeling solidly comfortable with who I am and how I’m interacting with others. I think few people are, but that with work, our comfort can improve overtime.
I was recently reminded of the concept of fitting out, something discussed in my Health Coach Training Program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, possibly coined by the founder Joshua Rosenthal. The concept embraces the fact that we are all unique, and we can choose to honor and thrive in our uniqueness instead of trying to meld ourselves to be more like those around us in order to feel that we can ‘fit in’.
Let me know if this resonates with you and how you can fit out in an area of your life.
