The Importance of Community

When you think about where you live, what is that brought you there?
Was it the rebel culture?
Local parks and eateries?
Nearby schools for your kiddies?
Or your friendly neighbours?  

Whatever your reasoning, where you live has become ‘home’ typically because of the community you’ve created there.

Without communities, we would live very isolated lives with minimal to no contact outside of our immediate social circle. Getting outside of our close-knit group, and meeting new people is an essential part of cultivating a self-fulfilled life!

It allows us to support one another, interact, share experiences and our modern life struggles. Having this open bond with others is what builds valuable relationships, and gives us a deeper sense of belonging.

Communities are also rich in resources. Your strengths may be someone else’s weaknesses and vice versa. With many skills, common goals can be achieved that much faster!
