I spent all day yesterday and today at a conference called The Global Leadership Summit. It was quite awesome. The speaker I was most looking forward to was Brene Brown, a researcher who studies shame and vulnerability. She said that people need two things. Love and belonging. Shes said, "The two irreducible needs of men, women and children are love and belonging. In the absence of these, there is always suffering."
WOW. WOW. WOW.
And as I reflected on the word belonging. I thought, "Hm... kimchi mamas kind of did that for me... when I didn't feel connected to a lot of people."
