A huge part of our human need is to feel a sense of belonging within community. The current models of community, particularly those in schools, do not cultivate belonging, they encourage 'fitting in.' When we forego authenticity in order to 'fit in' we are actually abandoning a true and rooted sense of belonging.
" Fitting in is about assessing a situation and becoming who you need to be to be accepted. Belonging, on the other hand, doesn't require us to change who we are; it requires us to be who we are." - Brene Brown
This episode explores what it means to cultivate belonging in our homes and extending out into our communities.
