The Importance of Community… and What’s Missing
Plain and simple, we are hardwired for love and belonging. Without it we will not thrive. But how can we connect with others and truly belong, if we are afraid to show our as authentic selves? We judge ourselves so much, of course we are afraid of being judged by others. So, we strive to ‘fit in’ or put up an image of ourselves that we believe others will accept. We might feel accepted for awhile, but ultimately, we are left with the same feelings of emptiness or disconnection. We long to be seen, known and accepted for who we are at our core… imperfections and all.
1: a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.
BUT WHAT IF… we could create a community where we could show up authentically and been seen for who we really are? What if we could lay judgement aside and encourage one another to be real. Where we could learn to be brave and inspire each other to be in courageous in living our who we are and all we have to offer this world. A place where we can talk about how hard it is to live from the vulnerable place of authenticity and what gets in our way.
If we want to live a wholehearted life – we need a wholehearted community!
It Starts With Courage
Being vulnerable, talking about how we often feel we aren’t enough, living an authentic life… all takes courage. We need a safe place to be real, where judgement is not welcomed, but acceptance is!
Through all the groups, workshops and retreats I’ve led, I’ve watched women create these kinds of communities. I’ve seen them flourish in them. Creating authentic community is a core piece of the work I do, because it’s what we need to heal, to grow and to become real.
One place we’ve continued this authentic community is in a monthly, in-person Meetup called Wholehearted Living. If you are seeking community and live near Colorado Springs you will want to check out our Wholehearted Living Meetup.
