Have you ever done a jigsaw puzzle where you're trying your darndest to get the stupid piece to fit in a spot that it obviously doesn't? Sometimes I feel like that. Sometimes I feel like I just don't fit. Like trying to fit a round peg in a square hole (like how I flipped that analogy upside down? I'm pretty wild).

In certain situations or with certain people, I feel like I have to shave bits of myself off to make myself fit. And I know that you should be who you are at all times blah blah blah, but this is the real world and sometimes you just want to belong. You just want to be part of it all.
I realize that all too often I'm guilty of living in my own head, which is more often than not a pretty frightening place. But lately when I'm out with friends or talking to a coworker about her and her boyfriends umpteenth break up or when I'm conversing with a Super Mom I just feel like I don't mesh. Like I'm the wrong piece in a jigsaw puzzle.
