My life of limbo:
I’m a Mormon. But I’m pretty liberal on most issues. I don’t have many Mormon friends. I absolutely don’t fit in with traditional Mormon culture. But I also don’t fit in well with non-Mormons. I don’t drink coffee. I don’t drink alcohol. I generally don’t fit in with most of my friends in social situations. Therefore, I live a life in limbo between two worlds, not quite fitting in with either.
I’m an MD/PhD student. Grad students think I get a “diet” PhD (which is not the case in my program). Med students think I’m weird for liking basic science and research. I don’t quite fit in with either group. Hence, again, I live a life in limbo between two worlds, not quite fitting in with either.
These are only two examples. Limbo can be a lonely place. But at least its quiet, sometimes.
