The State of Belonging…

The opposite (far enemy) of ‘Belonging’ is ‘Fitting In’. We must give up parts of ourselves in order to ‘Fit In’. Belonging is the experience of being acceptance for your truest self!

Finding surroundings where we truly belong is one of the most beautiful gifts, we can provide to ourselves. Finding those individuals to surround ourselves with that allow us to be seen, valued, and worthy is the only way we can allow for our truest selves to be witnessed by others.

Important items we need to consider for ourselves: What are you searching for in terms of connection? Belonging or to Fit In? Be Included or Be One with the crowd and loose our sense of self?
