Imagine you woke up one morning and realized that you would have to build your life back up again, almost from scratch. You would leave the network and safety of your people, most of your family and friends and you would walk away into the unknown – set out on a journey to find your new tribe. And maybe the hardest part – you would have to rediscover who was the real you. What were your values, beliefs and what opinions would you have on all sorts of issues.
This is hard to imagine for most of us, and I don’t think we reflect much on this on a daily basis: what opinions and beliefs are truly ours, and what is inherited from our family, our friends and our close surroundings.
Todays guest, Morten Westerheim, has first hand knowledge on building a new tribe and starting over again, as he left a strong network and safe community as an adult. Morten grew up in a very strong and tight Christian community in Norway, and the consequences of leaving this community were many and really life changing.
