🤲🏽 SHARING WITH YOUR COMMUNITY (CONSTRUCTIVE CONNECTIONS) 🏳️‍🌈

If you are craving community, look to your own surroundings to forge new relationships and build something new together.

Many of our relationships can be fleeting or do not deepen past a superficial level, yet these connections, as trivial as they can seem, often have the potential to grow into something much more essential. When we crave community, we should focus our attention on these casual acquaintances. To forge a bond, we need to work together so that we have a context from which to begin a more mature relationship. Sharing tasks that are part of living can be a wonderful way to become a part of a larger community, make new friends, and lighten the workloads of everyone involved.

Creating a network of queer persons who agree to pool certain resources and share tasks can be as easy as taking the initiative. If you are willing to take the first step by reaching out to the individuals who share your building or your street, you will likely find that others are receptive to the notion. Starting small, with just a few people, can help you orchestrate a smoothly running system. Together, you will need to decide what you want to do communally and what resources can be shared.

Actions speak louder than words, so working closely with others to ensure the well-being of the group can be a wonderful way to build a sense of community in your locale. Not everyone you approach will be open to the idea of becoming a part of a network of sharing. As you connect with those who do appreciate the merits of such a system, you will discover that others are just as eager as you are to create interpersonal connections that are defined by substance.
