Being honest, I never really think about where I belong, and when I do, I go into deep thought.
I feel that I have a sense of belonging at home. It’s where I feel the most comfortable. I’m surrounded by my supportive family, and I overall just feel content and happy.
School on the other hand, I never really think of myself having a sense of belonging there. If I want to, I can make improvements on finding that sense of belonging. But for now, I just feel that I’m on the side of the road.
I like to think of my sense of belonging in places like levels. The higher the level the more I feel like I belong in those exact places. At my home, I am high up in the levels, I feel great to belong there and I’m sure my siblings feel the same way. School? Not so high. I would say I’m in the low to middle levels. I’m not quite feeling that sense of belonging yet.
Overall I understand what belonging means. To me it means feeling important and being a part of a place. It also means feeling accepted, and connected.
