Are you a Black Sheep?

The Merriam Webster dictionary describes a Black Sheep as a disfavored or disreputable member of a group.  Do you want to Rewrite your Beliefs about being a Black Sheep?  

My mother told me that she felt like the Black Sheep because as a younger child of 11, she didn’t have special job like sewing or cooking.  My mother and her brother had to fill the wood box which she did not consider a special job.

It could be because of the the timing of when you were born, or your religion, gender, who you marry, who you don’t marry…Me, I just feel like I’m very different than my family.  Different, because I’m focused on being my true self and that is not always what everyone else wants; therefore I am not always doing what “they” want.  Different means a lot of things for me as I’m sure it does for you.    

Showing up here, is important for me.   It is my passion is to hear your Story, your thoughts, and your perspective for you to understand and join a community of showing up with your true Beliefs 

You have the opportunity to become more aware of your view or create a different one of being labeled a Black Sheep ? 

A May 2017 Psychology today article suggests options for working with the black sheep position including seeking support, rebuilding your connections, having boundaries, downplaying your role, and living authentically.  These all seem interesting, but I’m much more interested in hearing from you. 

It is our relationship with our understanding of ourselves that results in making the label of Black Sheep different.  

It’s like a non-venomous snake in your yard disturbing you.  All snakes have teeth that can be used in defensive bites, but rely much more on camouflage to avoid being seen. Some coil up, some make noise, but almost all will flee if given the opportunity. What is your relationship with the snakes and the Black Sheep label?  

Do you want to be proud of your differences?   

And now, the 5 R’s Practice is outlined for you to gain a deeper understanding of your feelings around being a Black Sheep.     

  1. Reflection–What is your reflection on being a Black Sheep or being different?  When do you notice it?  How does it feel? 
  2. Research–Can you see from where it came and was practiced when you were young?
  3. Recycle–Are there some feelings about your position of Black Sheep that you would like to Recycle?  Let those feelings alter into wisdom.   I’m recycling my feelings of inadequacy. 
  4. Rewriteyour statement is about bringing your full awareness and attention to your beliefs today with the wisdom of your years that you hold.  Your belief can be the same or different than when you were younger.  How do you want to feel about it? 
  5. Rehearsing–And now rehearsing, how you want to feel; you have choices and others do too!  This is about your view.
