“Will I fit in?” “Will others like me?” “Will I find friends?” Everyone asks herself these questions at different points in her life, and at any age and stage. Starting a new school, joining a new club, contemplating a career change, we may still return to these questions that reflect our foundational humanity, and our individual worries about acceptance and identity. When we know we fit in, that others like us, and that we have friends, we feel that we belong. Along with that comes feeling good about oneself. When we belong, we are able to be positive about differences that we see, accept them, learn about them, and celebrate them.
