Community is vital to life.
Whether you like it or not, you are connected to people. There is no way to get away from community. You need it to survive. You need it to function. Since the beginning of time, human beings have gathered together in groups to survive. Sure, you can survive in isolation, but you would spend all of your time just trying to make it. Every moment of every hour would be spent trying to fulfill your basic needs like food, water, and shelter.
If you want to do more than just survive, if you want to operate at a higher capacity, you need people around you. You need people to do life with you, not just around you. But right now it seems that many of us are living lives that look like solitary confinement. We hide out in homes and keep our human interaction to a minimum. We drive in the garage, close the door, and don’t come out. But life was never meant to be lived this way!
In order to live your life to the fullest, you need community. You need to be connected to people who love you, know you, care about you, and want to see you succeed. You need a group of people who are for you. People who celebrate good times with you and people who will cry with you during the tough times.
You need to be connected! Who are you connected to? Do you have a group of people who bring life to you? If you don’t, it’s time you find it. And if you can’t find it, start it!
