The sense of belonging.
A connection is a subjective feeling of closeness and belonging to friends, family, self, and community. Research shows that a strong sense of connection and belonging improves longevity and quality of life. A connection is inclusive of the bond you share with your friends or spouse, the sense of belonging you feel in your own home, and your individual self-acceptance.
