    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...

    Hunting Deer

    On m 18th birthday in April 1977, i went out to canvas town deer hunting with a good friend of mine.   On the way out there i was driving Kim's van which these days would be a death trap of a thing. I think it was a small humber something or other.    The terrain we tramped...

    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 Don't Need Somewhere to Belong ...

    I probably should have started a different group, but I thought I'd share these thoughts here anyway. I have always thought of myself as a bit of a nomad.  I have no real connection to any place and would live happily anywhere.  I was born in England but have no desire...

    I Thought I Did, But Not Now...

    Feel like you don't belong?  It may be an indication of mental health.  Out culture, country, music, food, and environment are going to rat-****.  If you feel you belong, you have settled for second rate.  For those who seek refuge in cults, religions, and ideologies, you...

    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...

    My Take On Belonging
