A sense of Belonging
Having a sense of belonging is a common experience. Belonging means acceptance as a member or part. Such a simple word for 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.
To build a sense of belonging requires active effort and practice.
One way to work on increasing your sense of belonging is to look for ways you are similar with others instead of focusing on ways you are different.
To search for a sense of belonging, is a deeper understanding of self and one's true identity.
