    Belonging is such an elusive quality. It is there one moment, then gone again. Are there people who feel that they belong somewhere stable for all of their lives? I doubt it. Feeling different, standing apart (for whatever reason) makes you vulnerable, but maybe it also lets you have a sharper, more discerning look at your surroundings. – But I wish everyone at least one group of people (family, friends) were he/she feels that she really belongs, is accepted just the way he/she is.

      You know, but I do think that some people do feel that sense of belonging throughout their lives. And maybe there are fleeting moments the loose it, but overall, it is a stable thread throughout. Not many. In my life I’ve met a handful maybe. But I couldn’t agree with you more, not belonging is a part of what makes life complex and rich as long as you have some kind of safe place. I really appreciate your comments, they always make me think. :)
