A Caregiving Comfort: Belong

Denise
yellow-ice-plant-1090543_640You may feel that you don't belong in your life, a life you didn't choose, a life you often wish would be replaced by the life you had, which is the life you want. How can you belong to a life that has changed so much that you don't recognize it?

When you don't feel like you belong in your life, you can decide you just don't belong.

And, when you feel that you don't belong, you also can feel misunderstood. You decide that no one (family members, friends) can truly understand what this life is like for you.

Because you feel like you don't belong and you are misunderstood, you take your life inside, closing the windows and drawing the blinds.

Interestingly enough, you don't belong in a world closed off from the real world.

You belong out here with us. You belong because you're making the most of every day, which is more than most would do. You belong because you serve our world in a way most can't. You belong in our world because you now know what most will need to learn from you.

You belong with us.
