Friends, find a group of humans that you can be in real community with, not just casual friendship. Living is so much sweeter when we have an intentional and authentic desire to be there for each other's messy moments.
I encourage you to dig deep into the nitty gritty. See what you can learn from genuine conversations. Be vulnerable. Be real. Be brave.
I’m not going to tell you it will be easy because it might not be, but it’s worth it. It’s like building a campfire — you have to build the structure, add kindling, light the match, and fan the flame. You will have to work to sustain your community, you’ll have to choose and fight for your community and it will be worth it.
I know you can’t force connection. You won’t always get along, you might get frustrated or annoyed with some more than others. But people matter and our hearts are too precious to be shallow in our relationships. We need each other.
We can't do this life alone.
