Science shows us that when we feel a sense of rejection, when we feel like we don’t fit in, it activates the same part of our brain as physical pain. That means that when we lack a sense of belonging, it literally hurts. No wonder we all work so hard to fit in! But is “fitting in” what’s best for us? It turns out that can hurt, too. In this episode, we discover the differences between belonging and fitting in, and we learn the meaning of real acceptance.

Dear Anxiety is a podcast for all ages to talk about the difficult emotions so many of us struggle with. We share research-based solutions for the greater mental wellness of your family, and we hope you’ll laugh with us along the way. Join hosts Ed Crasnick, a comedian and Emmy Award winning writer, and Renee Jain, positive psychology guru and founder of GoZen!
