Want to feel empowered? Give up trying to fit in :)

Want to feel empowered? Give up fitting in.

When we let go of trying to blend in and do what "everyone" does, we honor our true needs. And feel empowered.

For much of my life I've felt a bit "irregular" among peers...not entirely fitting in. Sometimes I could celebrate my differences and other times I suffered from self-judgment.

In the past few years, and more strongly, recent months, it has become crystal clear to me, that if I wish to do my best work, to collaborate with people around their Soul work, I must let go of trying to fit in.

I've finally realized, and moreover accepted, that I cannot do this work AND fit in, doing what everyone else is doing, operating in sync with modern culture. (i.e. uber busy, go-go-go, socially plugged in to the "cool" scene, even alcohol!)

It is a huge claiming. It is sometimes daunting. And sometimes a little lonely (which can be remedied when you find your "tribe").

Amazingly, now that I have fully claimed my not fitting in, it's actually incredibly empowering and liberating...like I finally have permission to BE in a new way...a way I'm meant to be.

An example: I go to a social event where there are a variety of lovely people. We talk, we share about what's happening in life, kids, marriage, career. In the moment, FUN! However, typically I go home exhausted.

As an empathic HSP, social situations require immense energy output from me-- there is an exponential amount of information to sift through and process-- environmental stimuli around me and all the energy/moods/emotions of others. If there are lots of people/stimuli, it can be really challenging, even draining.

I can do it-- be social in those environments and conversations.
And yet, what is even more true, is that I'm not really built for being busy, in stimulating environments and super social.

I'm built to observe and gather lots of subtle information and energy, interpret it and reflect it back to others (clients) in a new way that offers a fresh perspective.

Now that I know that, I can start to see my differences as "superpowers"-a whole new view. I can start to care for them and cultivate them, rather than ignoring my needs and feeling drained.

Here are a few energy-giving and nourishing practices for me:

  • quiet time alone
  • time in nature
  • meditation
  • writing
  • creating/drawing/coloring/painting
  • 1:1 deep conversations about soul, life purpose, intuition


In the end it's a choice...and not always an easy one. Sometimes I need to decline an invite or go home early. Other times I may have to "flex" my comfort zone-especially with an 8 year old who loves being active...(immediately followed by an energy rebalance so I can be my best self/wife/parent/coach/leader.)

Now I know.
Now I own it and understand what I need to thrive.

Does trying to fit in drain your energy?

If so, consider:

  • In what area am I trying to fit in (and over-flexing to my depletion)?
  • What do I actually need?
  • In what area(s) of life can I confidently give up fitting in to reclaim my energy (and self-esteem)?


There is so much energy we gain through owning & accepting:

  • who we are
  • all our differences
  • what we truly need to thrive

Joy,

Reach for the better thought

September 20, 2021

Every day we each face our own challenges, whether short-term or with no end in sight.
Each day we have a choice.
We can focus on the difficulty of the challenge and its weight upon us.
Or we can reach to the light just a little further. We can reach for the better thought.
"I choose to believe."
"I got this."
or even
"I will be a trailblazer."

Some days are easier than other with Levi's EoE (Eosinophilic Esophagitis).
He's becoming more aware of his differences, challenges and all the BIG emotions th...

How to make the best...

September 14, 2021


How wise can an 8 year old be?
Pretty wise.
Although I'm not an incredibly competitive person with others, I do get inspired to rise to a challenge.

Yesterday morning Levi woke up tired and cranky and really annoyed, thinking about how he had to run the track in gym class for 30 minutes on Mondays.

He.Didn't.Want.To.Do.It.

When he came home from school, he sheepishly shared that he had run 2 miles during gym and then dropped this wisdom on me....this quote I will use forevermore.

What Levi leaned i...

Believe

September 13, 2021



So often we get stuck in a loop of wanting something-- something big, something that would make a difference in our lives. We get stuck in the wanting and forget about getting into the Believing-- working with our thoughts, our mind, our energy and our beliefs to begin to giving shape to the possibility of it actually coming to fruition. 

If we practice seeing, feeling, sensing, thinking of it being possible and true, then we can start to believe. When we practice believing SO much that we can...

Ease the Transition Shift: Reflect, Nourish, Recalibrate

Ease the Transition Shift:
Reflect, Nourish, Recalibrate

 

More than ever we’ve been asked to be flexible and adaptable this past year. For some it’s been a positive growth-filled experience, for many it’s created immense fatigue.

 

However, when we choose to reflect and recalibrate periodically, we empower ourselves vs. being at the mercy of circumstance.

 

Here in Colorado, we’re in our final days of in-person school for the year.

There are so many people exhaling a huge sigh of relief for ...

Believe: Part 1 (early May)

Believe: Part 1

Do you believe it’s possible?

 

Whatever you wish for, whatever you aim to create, first you must believe it’s possible.

 

Some people may appear to have a charmed life, with success following them around like a bedazzled shadow.

 

However, often the main distinction between them and any other person is rooted in their unshakeable belief.

 

They believe deeply in whatever it is they are doing, being or expressing. And that makes all the difference.

 

When we wholeheartedly believe in...

About Robin


Robin Berg Like you, I’m on a journey. I’m passionate about learning and strive to transform life’s challenges into learning, so that I can evolve (sometimes ever-so-slowly) into the best version of myself. Like anyone, I’ve had my struggles, be it healing memories from the past, navigating health issues that folded into fertility issues or having a son who has a digestive disease/disorder and the constant vigilance that it requires. And all that I’ve learned I’m devoted to sharing…so that maybe some little tool, or a nugget of insight, or hope might support you in your journey to know your Self, your Soul and step into a life of feeling guided. I always say I “accidentally became spiritual” through practicing yoga. It’s true— it opened something in me that I didn’t know was there and caused me to see things I was formerly completely unaware of. I like it much better. So, for the ups and downs, the glimmers of things useful, I’m open to sharing. Feel free to let me know if something speaks to you. *Note: These past several years I’ve been focused on life as a Mama while maintaining thriving cozy coaching practice. Now, in 2020 I’m gearing up to start sharing and expanding again. Meanwhile feel free to check out posts on instagram @RobinPBerg and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SoulMoxie/.
