    Nned Some Where To Belong?

     many months ago I felt so out of touch, so out of place on life, felt like I had no where to belong any where, even in my career (Residential Care aide), it was quite the unsettling feeling. I strive hard at work to make a place for me there, to be a real part of the team...

    I Wish I Had A Place That Belonged

       I have no place that I can call home. For they are not my home. I don't have a place that I can have privacey.  That  is all that I ask for. But I seem to not get that at all.

    Lost At Sea For Loss of Welcoming Shores

    So then It is that I find myself at a loss for acceptance as I am quite eccentric and it is by chance that redheads share a strange similarity to my plight. At least from what I've read and heard them say. I myself am not a red head but find them all as a torch of sorts if you...

    Real Belonging

    It is a contradiction but, at the same time that I want to belong somewhere, I like being "belongingless". I guess the exception would be if I belonged to place or group, which would fit me perfectly and make me feel whole. But I am not that naive. This is utopia and...

    I Thought I Did, But Not Now...

    I Don't Need Somewhere to Belong ...

    My Take On Belonging

    This idea of "belonging" is an age old quest. All religions and political movements and even business formations are all based on this the "quest" to "belong." We are a so-called social animal, and yet most of us, most of the time, are substantially...

    Maybe I Belong In The Past

    I feel that I don't belong here, in this time. I feel as though I belong in a period of the 20th century, when values were more defined. Truth seemed to be more of a quality to be striven for, and one considered one's fellows, rather than the 'me first' society in which we now...
