REPLAY: How Feeling Like an Outsider Affects Your Life


I had another AHA moment recently that took my emotional understanding to a deeper level and I think a number of you will relate to what I discuss in this episode.
The understanding is about how the feeling of being an outsider, which starts in early childhood, affects many of our relationships as well as our business and financial outcomes.


I review the idea that your emotions are the creative force behind your life stories.
When you feel like an outsider, you feel less connected and connection is what we, as humans, need.
Our culture has encouraged feelings of separateness and aloneness.
I share the moment I realized that I have a habit of feeling like an outsider, even though as an adult I’m not treated like one.
I examined where in my body, I felt the outsider feeling and I share what I found and how it affects when I’m with people.
The affirmation that came into my head was I honor and respect my uniqueness.
The idea is to try to remember how you felt as a child and how you were treated that caused you to withdraw internally.
If your real religious views vary from those of the members of your spiritual group, it can cause outsider feelings.
I talk about how debt has, on occasion, allowed me to maintain my position as an outsider.
Being an outsider is part of my identity, so I create life stories in order to maintain that identity.
In order to make and sustain a lot of money, it helps to feel connected.
If you feel like an outsider, it may not be true.
The feelings that go along with feeling like an outsider are aloneness, feeling separate.
I’m going to put together an accountability group. If this interests you in any way, email me at
