Often when people move or start a new job they worry about fitting in. It’s not easy when you move to a new area and don’t know anyone. Frequently neighbors, particularly in big cities, are not that friendly. Smiling and saying hello at least gets some people to acknowledge your existence. In smaller neighborhoods it seems easier. It does take some time fitting in. If you move from a rural area, fitting in can be difficult. You may feel that you don’t look right and that everyone has a better fashion sense than you. The TV show, “What Not to Wear,” really give anyone who watched it a sense of building a wardrobe with a few basic items. It was the way when I was young. You tried to have a few quality items of clothing that you could mix and match to make it look like you really had an extensive wardrobe. When I was in high school, there was a girl who never wore the same outfit twice. That was amazing. Even as we have all aged, she is still quite lovely. She obviously went into fashion upon graduation from college. Fitting in at a new job as the new hire can be challenging. It may be particularly difficult if the workmates have all been there for several years. You may feel like an outcast as you try to perform your work with excellency and at the same time be social to your co-workers. If you join a firm where almost everyone smokes and you don’t, forget taking it up just to fit in. They will learn to like you for the wonderful person you already are. In the Good Gus series, fitting in was easy. Everyone was welcome to the small town and were happy to have new neighbors. The series is available exclusively on Kindle worldwide. If you started a new job and are worried about fitting in and don’t smoke, take a quiet break with your tablet and read “Misplaced Trust.” Someone is bound to ask what you are reading. The book is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Scribd, Playster and Tolino.
