In the Middle

Ever been in the middle? It is not an easy place to be. If you are on top, “everyone loves a winner.” If you are on the bottom, “everyone cheers for the underdog.” So, what happens when you are in the middle? If you earn more than most you are considered upper class, if you earn less than most then you qualify for aide, but what if you earn enough to get by without much leftover? You are in the middle (class). So, what do you do if you are in the middle? When you are in the middle of an argument, it never feels good, what is even worse is when you are mediating between two people who are having problems. In that same vein, everyone wants to cut out the middle man or woman. It seems like when you are in the middle, you lose. For example, if you are in the middle class, you do not make enough to get tax breaks that the upper 1 % get, you also do not qualify for special programs that the poor get and in fact you are the group who pays for those.

When people talk about being the middle child they also lose. They were not the first born nor the last, so they do not get the rewards of being the oldest or the coddling that the “baby” of the family gets. I have been told by people who experienced being the middle child that they feel like they never quite fit in.

Then there are in the middle of social group classifications or cliques. You are not the nerds, the brains, or the popular kids or the jocks or the stoners. You are just sort of “there” floating along. You get “C’s” in class, do not really accel in sports or have the best clothes you are not a trendsetter nor are you a rebel. Most of the time you coast along hoping no one really pays attention to you and they do not. You fly under the radar of most people.

Then this mediocracy follows you into the world of work. You do your work and get by. You do not get fired but you also do not get promoted. Then you save up your money and buy a house, that is not the best or the worst. You do not take chances or venture out too much. Being in the middle is a blah existence. The good news is that if you are not happy about your middle person status, there is a way out and I can help you! All you need to do is reach out.

Being in the middle is being comfortable, nothing that happens is overly exciting. You just go through the motions of life, and it is safe. Did you ever have a dream for yourself or a passion that you wanted to focus on but were afraid to try? Do you ever get tired of being in the middle? We can sit down and talk about finding a way out, to reaching out and grabbing life with both hands and really living! Not just going through the motions! I can help you get back on the path of finding out what makes you feel alive and how to set goals to make it happen! Pleas reach out today!
