Every single person in the world wants to feel true belonging

True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are, it requires you to BE who you really are.

Every single person in the world wants to belong. It’s a natural human feeling that all of our hearts desire. It’s the one thing we all have in common. It’s the basic need of the human soul. It’s a requirement needed in order to grow on the inside.

We thrive more then ever when we belong.

And if we don’t belong, we will begin to feel lonely and isolated. We might even begin to disconnect from ourselves and pull away from the things that hurt us.

This too is normal because we feel the need to defend ourselves. We feel threatened and we must do whatever it takes to avoid the feelings of pain.

However if we choose to avoid over really connecting then we are headed down a very lonely path. We might think to ourselves this is ok, it feels better then that uncomfortable place where I can’t breath.

We might fool ourselves into thinking that we are protecting ourselves and that’s partly true.

But we are also missing out on a chance at real connection.

God put very specific people in your life for a reason. You can learn the lessons they are here to teach you about yourself, or you can continue doing things your own way.

But you can’t do both

You can’t be vulnerable and be judgmental

You can’t have faith and fear at the same time

You can practice Presence while your being defensive

You have a choice every single day

Will you be who you are?
