I got a writing prompt book for my students. It's called ABC Feelings. It's really for facilitating conversations between parents and their children.
I am going to use it for a writing prompt for my students - to help them write about something of interest to them and to maybe help them navigate their way through their childhood a bit more smoothly.
I have decided to use it here, as well.
Mainly because of something the author, Alexandra Delis-Abrams, PhD. wrote in the introduction, 'The study of FEELINGS attracted me when I saw that people suffer depression, stress, disease - a state of imbalance - when they fail to understand the source of their feelings."
So here is my adventure into the land of feeling........
A is for Feeling Accepted
I have felt accepted and part of a group occasionally.
Sometimes at work, sometimes at church (not so much) and usually when blogging, and almost always at home with my family (hubby and kids and their friends).
The first time I remember feeling truly accepted and part of the group was way back in the day when I went to a private "free" school in 11th grade.
Oh my, was that a great year, and I felt truly accepted for who I was. It truly was free of form; bliss.
That's where I met my great and true friend, Ananda Girl.
It didn't last, unfortunately, something to do with a teacher loving a student, personality conflicts and stuff like that, but oh it was fun while it lasted!!!!!
Can you think of a time when you felt accepted and part of a group?
