“In” formed & Un-in-formed

Are you in? Are you out? Inside?! Outside?! Are you an insider? or an outsider?

(Who likes being left out? excluded, an outsider, shunned?) Being an outsider is not an easy life, eh? Everybody "needs" to belong, right?

Choices. Are you "in" formed? in the know or In and out. Either you're inside or you're outside. Though, one could have one foot in and one foot (nope, not dancing the hokey pokey-lol:)

Nurturing Seedlings 3

Ebb and flow, high and severe problems (challenges) are only TEMPORARY!:)
