It happens occasionally that we feel displaced. This can happen for any number of reasons or for no reason at all, just crossgrainedness. Once we become aware of the feeling we want it to disappear instantly. Whether we’ve brought the feeling on ourselves or we truly have been displaced by a catastrophic event or circumstances beyond our control we must lose the feeling at least before we can begin the process, long or short, of fitting back into our own places. To begin this process, finding a new friend or a supportive person is the best strategy. It doesn’t matter whether or not this person is someone you would normally like or interact with, most likely they are also looking for support and friendship as well. There really is strength in numbers and the more people you can find with goals the same as, or close to, yours, the better able you will be to meet those goals. While working with unknown people who have many diverse background one may also find that there really isn’t all that much difference between you and that any differences shrink until they have no impact at all on your interactions, formal or social. Thus the immediacy of your displaced feelings are diminished and can fade away until you feel ‘replaced.’ Can displacement be look at as an opportunity?
