Humans are social animals. We crave a community of like-minded individuals- people who share similar traits, interests, and passions. Being a part of such a community is invigorating and gives us a sense of belonging, a sense of being part of something greater than ourselves. Nowadays, in the kind of hectic world we live in, forming bonds can be quite difficult. That’s why creating a space where people feel like they belong is essential.
Importance of a community
Let’s take a closer look at the importance of belonging to a thriving community of like-minded peers.
Like it or not, we all need some support from time to time. The simplest way to get this support is from friends and family members. Or, in this case a neighbourhood or a peer group with similar people. The connections you make in these groups will help you stay motivated whenever you need additional support. From a simple act like sharing a story between each other or something along the lines of having someone veer you towards the correct path and hold you accountable for your actions, a community will be there to support you.
Many times when people think about learning, they often associate it with being in a classroom setting. But if you look beyond this view, there are a lot of opportunities where we can learn. One such opportunity is through being in a group with our peers. We already know that communities are formed based on shared interests, traits, hobbies, etc. Yet, the people that make up a community are not the same. There will always be differences among each other. And it is only through differences that people learn something new. If everyone was the same, then there wouldn’t be an opportunity to learn something new. That is what makes communities so important. It gives us the ability to enrich ourselves with new knowledge.
The best communities are the ones that share. There’s a famous saying that goes “sharing is caring” and when you live in a neighbourhood or share a bond with a group of people it becomes all the more true. Once you become a part of a group, you start looking out for each other and helping them out with everyday tasks, you participate in activities together, and also share valuable ideas and experiences. All of this adds to the growth of the community around you since everyone keeps adding more value to the relationship.
A community is a place where you will be able to get countless opportunities for growth and the experience you need to succeed. A group of like-minded people all have similar end goals in mind- to succeed in life. Once you make headway into such a community you will be provided with opportunities to build strong and valuable relationships that can propel you forward towards success.
