Belonging

In doing research for her latest book, educator Brené Brown asked middle-school children the difference between belonging and fitting in. They said, fitting in is when you want to be part of something and belonging is when people want you just as you are. I get to be me if I belong and I have to be like you to fit in.

Where do you fit in?

Where do you belong?
