The Tribe

Find Your Tribe

“I’m so grateful for my group of friends because they’re such unique individuals. We have this bond — we lean on one another, and we’re inspired by one another. Whenever I’m stressed, I’ll tell one of them and they’ll say, ‘I’m coming over,’ and we’ll talk it out. That’s so important. Much of the time, when people are dealing with stress or mental health issues or depression, it’s easy to keep it all inside. But that’s the most destructive thing you can do. Having a community is my stress relief.”

Keep Your Door (and Mind) Open

“My house has a revolving door. Even when I’m not home, I love having my friends over and knowing that they’re hanging out by the pool and enjoying it. I always say that my household supports all forms of expression and creativity. It makes me very happy to have a home that’s a safe space for my friends.”

    Oof! I have tried and failed for many years to find my tribe, or at least a local community where I feel I belong. Much easier said than done for some of us, I’m sorry to say. 🙂

      I have learned that friendships often transition through the seasons of our lives, and developing friends as an adult is much harder than it was when we were all children. In saying that, continue to smile, say hello, and do things you enjoy, and those meant to engage with you will find you.
