A Sense of Belonging

A Sense of Belonging is a teen girl monologue that focuses on Beverly’s need to not feel so isolated with the other students at school.  She just wants to feel accepted and be included.  She talks to her Mom.

Beverly: I want to feel at ease when I go to school.  I want to feel like I fit in.  I’m never part of the in crowd, always on the outskirts looking in.  I’d like to be part of the action for once and not be so in my head.

God, I hate being so shy and I hate how everybody seems to think that they have me figured out..like, I’m that girl to them and there’s no second chance at ever being included in something because I’m that girl…the girl who never goes to parties cause I’m never invited to any, the girl who doesn’t talk to guys because guys don’t ever talk to me…

I want to change people’s perspective of who I am and I don’t know how to make that work.  It’s like I’m there but non-existent in a way.  Does that make sense?

(beat)

It would be nice to be involved with everyone else but it just doesn’t seem like there’s ever any room for me…like all the seats have already been taken.  It sucks.
