Day 3454: Belonging

As a group therapist and as a human being, I think a lot about belonging. Here’s a definition of belonging:


Now I be longing for a longer definition, so here’s a definition of “belong.”

From what I’m reading and experiencing, more people, here and now, are feeling like they do not belong in the USA because of a vocal minority gaining more power over the majority. It’s difficult belonging to a country where gun rights are protected more than human rights.

Do you see belonging in my images for today?

My sense of belonging is all about being with those I love, so happy National Beautician’s day to Mia, the beloved beautician for my friend Barbara (pictured above), my friend Deb, and me!

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “belonging.”

I look forward to reading the comments, belonging below, about this belonging post.

Thanks to all belonging here, including YOU!

  1. I belong right were I am right now, Ann, sitting contentedly in our living room next to my dear wife Karen.

  2. Joan has a strong sense of belonging
    And now into it’s 5th day, my migraine seems to as well.

  3. I must belong on this Earth or I wouldn’t be here, but sometimes I feel like an alien from another planet!

  4. I see lots of belonging going on in your pics. I feel I am right where I need to be, with family and friends, and olive the cat, keeping me company and sharing the everyday adventures of life.

  5. I’ve often wandered into places where I was told I didn’t belong, which wasn’t intentional, and some have been understanding when I’ve told them “I’m not lost, I’m exploring.”

  6. Nice post 😄

  7. It is good to belong where we are
