Discovering true belonging is a gift. As humans, we crave belonging on both personal and communal levels. The feeling of being connected is a fundamental desire and we can learn to accept others who are different than we are by seeing and validating their choices made, based on their need to belong.

We often scold children for making choices we disagree with. Validating and showing empathy would likely accomplish greater results in improving our relationships, and the pressures that we have amongst our social structures often blind us to the needs of others.

Feeling discomfort from other people’s choices should not stop us from accepting them and accepting their choices, which were made by them, based on who they are – not who we are. Learning to accept others out of love is key to binding us all together in better, longer lasting and healthier relationships.
