#fmf belong: we belong

Go

We all, I think, want to belong.

To be a part of something outside of ourselves.

A comfort of family.

A circle of friends.

A gathering of mothers.

A neighborhood.

A volunteer group.

A “get physically active” group.

A “take action group.”

A fellowship.

Whether we accept it or not.

Whether we understand it or not.

Whether we embrace it or not.

Whether we want it or not.

Whether we realize it or not.

Whether we share it or not.

That even when we are alone, we’re not.

We belong to something outside of ourselves.

We belong.

Stop

    We are connected by all these invisible strings. The interdependency that I wish we all appreciated more. Hey, I somehow belong to you too. If only connected by this web of FMF and universal experience. Thank you for writing.

      It’s those invisible strings you mention I think forms an infinite web. Through that web, we meet many people. I’m glad the strings in the web brought you by today! Thank you.

    We certainly do because, at heart, we are social creatures and need to feel we are a part of a larger group.

      Very true. When we feel left out, (intentionally or unintentionally), it hurts because we have this need to feel wanted, to belong.

      For some reason, lisha, my response is at the top of the comments, rather than below yours!
