It seems to me that new agey people are often the black sheep of their families. I know this to be the case for me. I get along with my family pretty well. However, it can almost feel like I am a foreigner amongst them. I am at least the weird aunt. That is with my weirdo flag barely halfway up the pole. I imagine that being the metaphysically minded family member can feel like being a middle child even when you are not the middle child. If this ever makes you feel self-concious, remember that contrast makes things more interesting.
