    Figured out a major source of my social anxiety is due to not really having a place in society.
This line gave me a long pause. I wondered,

What does this mean?

Who determines whether we have a place or not?

How do we make a place for ourselves?

How long does it take?

How do immigrants and refugees feel?

How much 'othering' is going on by people who feel more entitled?

Is it an internal belief system that determines our place in society or external forces who are excluding us?

I could probably write a dozen more questions.

Shall we try to find answers, or is the state of mystery more exciting to you?

We might need to each find our own answers, but in the process we can benefit by sharing our meditations.

A wise thought.
