When You Know You're Not Fully Welcomed

Every church will say "everyone's welcomed!"

But do they really mean it?

I always tell people that if they feel they are not fully welcomed, trust your gut.

Don't be tricked into believing that you are fully welcomed when you know for a fact you are not allowed to be fully yourself.

Many people in the LGBTQ community understand this.

But this applies to more than just LGBTQ.

It applies to everyone.

If you are not fully welcomed, appreciated, affirmed, supported, encouraged, and loved as you are, get lost!

Unless, of course, the benefits of staying outweigh the costs of leaving.

Otherwise, find your tribe!
