To really feel like you belong can feel like a luxury. It is so important feel truly seen, understood and feel like you are able to be your full self. Sometimes it is the absence of this feeling that illustrates what belonging means on a personal level. To be part of a wider community shapes how we as Black women see ourselves and we start how other people see us. This has been part of my personal experience. Everyone experiences this in their own way and I wanted to hear other womxns' experiences.
