A human instinct since birth is needing to belong - a feeling that people care about you and that you have a sense of belonging to people around you.
But what happens to us when we don't feel that sense of belonging? In our childhood, we want the sense of belonging from our parents. We may compete for their attention with our siblings.
Then we start school and we want it from our friends, we want to be accepted in a circle or clique.
This I think, all boils down to not feeling alone in the world. No matter how anti-social you feel, or how introverted you think you are, we all need other people in our lives.
Are you afraid of being lonely? What kind of sense of belonging do you yearn for?
