Do you ever feel like you don’t belong? Do you ever ask yourself the question: Where do I belong?
Well, my friend, let me just say that if you have ever asked these questions; You are NOT alone!!
“Belongingness is the human emotional need to be an accepted member of a group. Whether it is family, friends, co-workers, a religion, or something else, people tend to have an ‘inherent’ desire to belong and be an important part of something greater than themselves.”
Everyone wants to belong and be part of something. It’s human nature!
“Belonging means acceptance as a member or part. Such a simple word for a huge concept. A sense of belonging is a human need, just like the need for food and shelter. Feeling that you belong is most important in seeing value in life and in coping with intensely painful emotions.”
If you ever feel like you don’t have a place in this world, just remember that everyone feels that way sometimes, You are NOT alone. Find someone else who is alone because chances are they want to be accepted as well.
Some people find their belonging very easily, while others need to be reminded that they really do belong and that they are important.
So, next time you feel alone, find someone else who is also alone; Find your place in this world. I know it can be difficult at times, but trust me, it will all be worth it. The hard things to overcome are usually worth more!
And, if you do feel like you belong, don’t be afraid to find people that seem alone and that need to be reminded that they belong and that they are accepted.
