Love and Belonging

As I conducted my interviews, I realized that only one thing separated the men and women who felt a deep sense of love and belonging from the people who seem to be struggling for it. That one thing is the belief in their worthiness. It’s as simple and complicated as this: If we want to fully experience love and belonging, we must believe that we are worthy of love and belonging.

    What a great quote. I really is that simple… and that complicated. In all the years that I have lived, I still do not feel that worth. I think that it is even harder to feel it when you have had people tell you just the opposite for most of your life. I pray that I can help my children know that they are worthy!
