When thinking about what I wanted this episode to be about I was reflecting on the previous shows and especially the last show about men and women coming together and it struck me, that trust gives way to connection, connection creates the space for community. The epsiodes that come before, guide me to the next. Many of us humans are moving through life doing, doing, doing and a lot of the time feeling as though we have to do it on our own. "I got it, I got it, I got it" until we don't "got it". We are so wired to believe that we have to do it on our own that we create ourselves as separate and alone.
This brings up what a friend and fellow coach refers to as the "I'm the only one" sydrome. "I'm the only one who feels overwhelmed. I'm the only one who feels like I'm failing at life. I'm the only one who feels scared and sad right now. I'm the only one struggling." And yet when we share with other people the feelings of "I'm the only one", when we listen to other people's experience and their struggle, we realize we are not alone, we are not the only one.
Community is a support structure that allows us to go from "I'm the only one" to feeling seen, supported, and understood. What does your community look like? What is your relationship with the concept of community?
We are stronger together. This episode is about exploring the power of community, why choose it and how to create it.
