Salina you rocked this topic of longing for belonging! Beautiful story of God getting you from then to now! I LOVE what you said…”It’s not up to others to decide if we belong! It’s up to us! And we already belong anyway”! What an amazing concept this is‼️I’ll definitely be putting this one to use! THANK YOU for sharing!!

Hi There,
Your post took me to a place of humanity. I believe we are wired to belong, we are wired to be communal. It goes all the way back to survival. The world today looks very different from the days when we were cave dwellers, but our basic instincts are intact. So I see our desires to belong are instinctual. One of the ways I learned to feel belonging, or a part of, was to contribute, add to, or volunteer. Without thinking about belonging, I make myself a part of, or included. Yes belonging is one of the characteristics that seems to be synonymous with humans and animals alike. I agree with your sister, it is a choice.

So very interesting how you and your sis had differing perceptions of the same reunion. You belong! You have so much to contribute.
