What it feels like to be new

"I am new here.”

Have you ever wondered what “being new” can feel like?

I think you need to know. I think we all do.

Because sometimes people hurt new people by what they say…or don’t say. By what they do…or don’t do.

Being new feels like, we are invisible.

It feels like never being comfortable.

It feels empty. It feels like we don’t matter.

It feels like we don’t belong anywhere.
