After a year (or more) of social distancing, it is all to clear to us that humans crave connection. Feeling accepted for who we truly are can give us validation and self-worth. Knowing there are people who support you and will be there for you when you’re struggling provides a sense of safety. Being in community provides all these qualities and more.
Community is one of those things that's important in both the personal and professional aspects of our life. It makes us feel connected, accepted, supported, loved and respected, which are all key to helping us thrive and grow.
There is no one-size-fits-all community. In fact, it’s up to each of us to develop our own sense of community in all areas of our lives. The important thing to remember is that we all need each other.
However, building and nurturing community seems to get harder as we get older. In this week’s blog, I invite you to check out some ways to build, develop and maintain your community for your highest good and the good of others.
