Awareness of Belonging
an excerpt from Live Beautifully: A Book to Sit With, by Doris Wedige
Reflections on Belonging...
I want to hold your hands and look into the depths of your eyes and speak to you of this truth:
"You have nothing to be ashamed of. You are worthy of being accepted just the way you are."
I too have lived with shame. I too have lived with the pain of not belonging.
There is no exclusion in this world. Only our perception in flawed. We must adjust our perception and see with new vision. We are worthy of loving and being loved just the way we are.
