Have you ever walked into a room full of people and felt like you were completely alone?
Many, many times.
I remember driving to the women’s Christmas party our church was hosting one year and giving myself a pep talk just so I wouldn’t turn around and flee. I was new to the church. And while I had been invited, I didn’t know anyone. Not really.
I would go on to make some wonderful friends at that church. The women there impacted my life (and my faith) greatly. But that Christmas party terrified me.
However, I did walk in. And I was greeted with smiles, someone invited me to sit with her, and I had a wonderful time. I was so glad that I went.If you have ever walked into a crowded room and felt like you didn't belong, you are not alone… Click To Tweet
But that’s not always the case. I’m used to feeling like I don’t belong. Sometimes it turns out wonderfully and someone will grab me in all my introverted awkwardness and help me to feel included (like Megan did the year I ventured to the Colorado Christian Writer’s Conference). Other times, I sit in the background and soak in what I am able, then quietly slip out when it’s over. I have definitely experienced both, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you had, too.

Anyways, all this to say, when I came across Stacey’s post last week, I knew I had found the post I wanted to share with you. If you have ever walked into a room full of women and felt like you didn’t belong, you need to know that you aren’t alone.
And Stacey, don’t forget to grab the “I’ve Been Featured” badge and add it to your post so your readers can celebrate with you.
