Feeling like we don’t ‘fit in’ is such a shared experience that there’s a whole genre of teen movies about trying to fit in. Our human yearning for community, for belonging, is incredibly strong. So many of us try to get the outward behaviors right. When we’re young (and sometimes not so young), it’s about the right hair or the right jeans or the right sneakers. As we get older, it might be living in the right neighborhood or driving the right car or even cleaning our house the right way.
But belonging, true belonging, is about being accepted as we are. So why do we mistake that for ‘fitting in?’ Listen in as Michelle and JoyGenea discuss the similarities and differences. And their own journeys to belonging.
