Today, when you go home from work, you’ll be tired. You’ll open your door, and whether you’re greeted by screaming children or the purr of your refrigerator (and silence) you’ll have a similar feeling: that you don’t really want to be here. You’d rather be somewhere else.

You’re not sure where somewhere else is. You just know that when it comes to the day in and day out aspects of your life, you’re not really sure you fit. You’ve got a vague sense of not feeling like you’re supposed to be here. You feel like you’re supposed to be somewhere else. But you’re not sure where somewhere else is.

In today’s fast moving world, it can be hard to feel noticed. It can be hard to feel like you’re important enough to stand out, rather than get lost in the mass rush of internet information. Instead of letting that get you down, take a minute to appreciate the businesses and organizations that have still got your back. In an impersonal world, people still care about you as a person.

Companies such as Terbium Labs take your identity seriously. So seriously, in fact, that they built an entire business to protect it. The idea of your data being stolen and passed around online can be a little overwhelming–but protection has caught up to the internet. Now, you can have all of your sensitive information tracked online, making sure it never shows up anywhere it shouldn’t. It’s a relief to know that you’re safe, and it helps keep you from feeling lost. You’re not alone in an internet sea–somebody’s got your back.

One of the most frightening times in your life can be a personal injury, and it’s a relief to know there are lawyers who will put you first. With amazing attention to your needs, a good lawyer can help turn a traumatic, stressful season into a smooth, empowering transition. No one should feel alone when they’ve been injured, and instead of facing an injury while feeling that sense of “wanting to be somewhere else,” you can face it knowing you’re right where you should be.

Another inspiring group that has your back are app designers. Many people aren’t aware of the free encouragement apps available on your phone. From daily meditations to apps that help distract and redirect thoughts of self-harm, there are hundreds of free apps to devoted to improving your lifestyle. A simple install and everyday you can be reminded that there are people out there who cared enough to make an app–for free, for you.

You don’t have to come home and feel that sense of impersonal connection, of drifting. Sometimes you have to take a step towards a better life, but there are unlimited resources available to help get you back on track. You don’t have to want to be somewhere else. You can thrive, right now, right here.
