Yes, we are. It explains the human need “to belong.” And in periods of pain, darkness, and disconnect – it is imperative to make that connection with “one’s tribe.”
No one understands a feeling or a situation any more than someone else who has been through it – or who may still be going though it. This is what “finding your tribe” means to me.
If you’ve ever felt disconnected – or on the outside looking in – I highly recommend David Whyte’s collection of poetry, “The House of Belonging.” He approaches this deep-rooted human desire in the most eloquent of ways.
As you continue on your creative journey of life, think about who you can share your joys with, cry your tears with, and who (or what) will give you the space “to be you” without any form of judgment. There is no need for perfection in a circle of support. This is a place where you can be your most vulnerable and still feel loved and appreciated for who you are.
As you ponder your own tribe, consider these words from American writer and activist, Starhawk:
“Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power.”
Somewhere, there is a tribe waiting to welcome you with open arms and an open heart as the creative soul that you are.
You belong. We all belong. This beautiful planet isn’t just for a chosen group of us. It’s for ALL of us!
We all have a place in this world. Don’t let anyone tell you any differently!
