Are you? This question may make you raise your eyebrow or both because you’re probably thinking 🤔 what the heck. Yes, and if you’re like me have a few social media accounts, RIGHT.
Well you have it right and wrong. The socializing I’m speaking of is allowing the greater population decide your norm so you will not feel like the odd ball. Odd ball being what you’re doing is so out of characteristic for let’s say your age, your financial status, your professional, your gender, your family, your friends this list is long but you get the picture.
You’re SOCIALIZED when you allow the limits, history standards set your limits. You’re socialized when you do them because you feel you maybe cast out of a group, lose friends, or as I do sometimes carry those labels “odd, so different”, there are many. I once was so socialized listening to a few on my fitness journey. I also am so glad I became aware, surrounded myself with like minded individuals, and detached myself from limiting socialized standards. Remember if you’re not harming you or others your journey be it fitness as mine or whatever is on the rise.
