1.08 BELONGING -- PSYCHOLOGY ABUSE TERMS, CONCEPTS

==== Belonging

MEANING: Being a part of something else, something larger that gives one meaning

RELEVANCE TO ABUSE: We all want to belong. It is a basic need. Over time a relationship with an abusive person is two fold: the sense of belonging and the abusive behavior. Often we are put into a fight or flight situation which is unhealthy. One the one hand we belong so we should stay and work it out; on the other hand we should flee and get out. But generally only when the abuse becomes overwhelming will it swamp the sense of belonging and create a desire to leave. Being locked into 'fight or flight' can put one constantly on guard and create great anxiety over time.

RELATED WORDS AND PHRASES: community, home, acceptance, security
