One reason that belonging increases meaning in life is it promotes the idea of continuity and of permanence.

If you belong to an organization or group that is greater than yourself, there is comfort in the idea that it will outlast you.

Along with feeling like we belong, coherence in our environment also promotes meaning. When we experience things that don’t make sense, we feel life has less meaning.
