FINDING YOUR TRIBE By bUneke Staff Have you ever felt you were a big fish in a small pond or that you simply didn’t belong? How many times have you wondered, or perhaps hoped, you’d been abandoned by your real parents and adopted by strangers because you felt your family was nothing like you? If you felt like you were the only splash of color on a monochrome canvas, you know what it’s like to be different. Chances are, you have felt misunderstood most of your life. You may have thought you didn’t fit in or that if you could just find a way to blend in, your awkwardness would end. There’s no reason to become one of the masses. Embrace your uniqueness and let us help you find your tribe! When you find more people who think like you, we’ll be there to say, “Welcome home!” Parents of children diagnosed as being on the Autism spectrum suddenly feel alone, because they know their lives and their children’s lives will never be what some call normal. Spouses of people with crippling disabilities or terminal illnesses imagine their social lives swiftly disappearing. There are other things that make people feel disconnected from their tribes.
Embrace your uniqueness and let us help you find your tribe! Lone artists in a family filled with jocks or the girl who’d rather run through the woods than to play with dolls often wonder why they are so different. When a long line of doctors produces a gifted musician or a family of attorneys has a youngster who is more interested in auto mechanics than in the law, people cluck their tongues and wonder what went wrong. Nothing! These unique individuals may not follow the family path to Fortune 500 companies but if they follow their hearts and pursue their dreams, they know what it means to bUneke. Our tribes are made up of other people who believe what we believe and want the same things we want. Whether we want to sculpt marble statues like Michelangelo or tinker with inventions like Thomas Edison, we all deserve to do the things that bring us the most joy in life. What do you want to do more than anything in life? What’s holding you back? Let us know. We might be able to connect you with members of your tribe who can help you.
