Are you starved for connection?
Are you thirsting for that intimate conversation?
Do you long for someone to give you a hug?
You are not alone.
So many of us are like castaways stranded on a dessert island.
Thirsting for someone we can feel safe with.
Desiring more than anything to tell someone our secrets.
Longing for someone to comfort us.
Looking for that connection that brings us closer together.
No one wants to be more alone.
No one wants to be more disconnected.
We all want to be part of a community that we feel deeply connected to.
We want to have people around us we can count on.
People we can lean on when times are tough.
Who will help us when we feel down.
Who will stand by us when we’re going through our darkest hours.
Who we can sit with and cry on their should without judgment.
Who accept us for who we are, just as we are.
Community is how we relate to the world.
Feeling safe in community is essential for us.
It is only when we feel safe enough to truly be ourselves that we learn acceptance.
First from ourselves, and then from others.
And when the community is strong and supportive of all of it’s members, then it will last.
Then it will thrive.
Then all it’s members will thrive as well.
So let’s find our true community, where are heart lies.
And find the peace we so deeply desire.
