“By building relations we create a source of personal pride and belonging that makes living in a chaotic world easier.” – Susan Lieberman.
This week’s Wednesday Challenge on partner Susan and my site is the word BELONGING.
Human beings for the most part are social animals. We are raised in a familial situation, educated in a classroom of our peers, and seek employment or a profession so that we will be able to support ourselves in life. All this is part and parcel of a cultural learning experience.
Much of the psychological literature concerns itself with children having a basic need to “fit in” The home is the starting place for youngsters to experience acceptance and belonging.
When we become adults many of us choose our leisure associations based on our interests and hobbies: stamp collecting, golf, tennis, book clubs, and the like because belonging to one club or another fulfills a basic need for us.
For the past couple of years our social interactions have been stymied by the pandemic and many of us were forced to sever our social ties for obvious health reasons. But now many of these social outlets are once again offering avenues of interaction for former members.
This week we ask you to tell us if you have resumed your pre-pandemic memberships and associations or have you chosen another form of recreational outlet.
As always, our challenge is flexible, feel free to interpret the challenge in any way you wish – Words, Pictures, Poetry, or Rhyme.
