Overcoming Feeling Out of Place: Practical Tips

Did you know that whenever we're rejected, excluded or ostracised, our brains register it in the same area as physical pain?

We all want to belong and be a part of a bigger tribe, whether it’s your friends, coworkers or family members. It makes us feel secure and happy, strengthening our overall well-being [1].

While feeling out of place occasionally is common, struggling with it long-term means that there's an underlying issue, best addressed in CBT Therapy with an experienced professional. If left unchecked, it might lead to problems like anxiety, heightened stress, or self-sabotage.

In this article, we answer the question: "Why do I feel like an outsider?", explain the causes of feeling different, and share practical tips and techniques on how to identify, process and overcome that issue.
