This is something that everyone wants, isn’t it? That sense of connection, of being a part of something larger than ourselves…it can be almost aphrodisiac. We first must belong to ourselves, and feel that deep connect within us. It has to be followed by love, otherwise it really isn’t quite belonging.
So, I thought I’d go ahead and share thoughts on belonging from bigger brains than my own. 🙂
“You’re imperfect, and you’re wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.” ~ Brene Brown (Someone else who thinks that love and belonging go hand in hand.)
“Perhaps home is not a place, but simply an irrevocable condition.” ~ James Baldwin
“Giving connects two people, the giver and the receiver, and this connection gives birth to a new sense of belonging.” ~ Deepak Chopra
“Some of us aren’t meant to belong. Some of us have to turn the world upside down and shake the hell out of it until we make our own place in it.” ~ Elizabeth Lowell
Belong to yourself. First, belong to yourself.
Happy Friday, and blessings to you all…
