Being an outsider is never an issue so long as you focus on your core to spread its fragrance

We are all #seekers, whether we realize or not


We seek #love💕 and #belonging


Unfortunately some of us even endure huge #suppression & #abuse just to ensure that we belong to the community/team/group that we love to associate with


Alas! The belonging doesn’t happen very often. The seeker gets frustrated and becomes #dysfunctional


Brené Brown writes in The #Gifts of #Imperfection


“I’m convinced that #belonging is in our #DNA, most likely connected to our most #primitive #survival #instinct.


Given how difficult it is to cultivate #self #acceptance in our #perfectionist #society and how our need for belonging is #hardwired, it’s no wonder that we spend our lives trying to fit in and gain #approval. It’s so much easier to say -I’ll be whoever or whatever you need me to be, as long as I feel like I’m part of this


From #gangs to #gossiping, we’ll do what it takes to fit in if we believe it will meet our need for belonging


But it doesn’t


We can only belong when we offer our most #authentic selves and when we’re embraced for who we are


Hence seeking #self and #super-self is so very essential and you can easily belong here.


Giving #undue #importance to mere #mortals and #ephemeral is being utterly foolish & #defeating


A sensible person will never suppress someone seeking #love and attention and yet will hanker in futile from a #nongiver
