Journeys To Belonging 

Ilene Winokur AlZaid, Ed.D.

Personal Belonging

A sense of personal belonging is created when we interact in healthy ways with others; in our family, at work, school, play, or in our communities. Issues such as bullying are related to lacking a sense of belonging. Third culture kids (TCKs) move around the world and often find it difficult to feel like they belong.
When we are facing challenges in our lives, we need to feel we belong in order to feel safe and supported.
