Compatibility with people where you live


Sep 5, 2009
Got to thinking about how connected, compatible, or relatable we feel with people in our area, community, city, region, town, etc.

Sometimes, i feel a big disconnect, mainly cultural and sometimes personal, with the people who live in my area, etc. There's a feeling of difference i can't articulate. There's no connection, etc. There's the sense of always having to try a bit too hard to feel somewhat at ease. Not that i don't interact or have good relationships with people, but there's a definite disconnect with the culture of the cities/towns where I live.

So, do you feel a sense of compatibility with people where you live? If yes, how? If not, why do you think?
