What is the Belongingness in your own words?
its th oppisote how I feel.
meens bein around people who wont ditch u.
it doesnt mean moving to a new home an feelin out of place.
it doesnt mean counting up little things you do rong,an beet urself up bout them.
it doesnt mean feeling ugly or un attractive just because you dont dress like evri one else.
it doesnt meen the need to feel like an outcast,or feeling emo,
it meens to feel special
and respect and accept urself.
I am sad to say I do not contai and belongingness.
well belongingness isnt a word
belonging/belong/belonged and belongings are words
if you mean what does it mean to belong
as in a group or somewere you think you fit in kind of belonging
then thats just it, its somewere or in something (like a club or group) that you beleive/think you fit into and "belong"
Thanks you guys gave great examples. But when I said belongingness I was refering to the Belongingness hypothesis which was created by Baumeisters, so in that sence it is a word, it is a hypothesis in psychology, not made up.
"belongingness" ;P great word you made up Courage...
for me it would mean being with someone that makes me happy and keeps me giggling all the time and I dont have to stray :) its almost similar to being content :)
arhhh Courage, you had us all stumped :( hehehe its great to have our thinking caps on and you made all of us think which is heaps awesome :)
blending in and matching, to put it simply. to be with others like you.
meant to be apart of.
ah ok then
