Do you have people you “do life with”
You may be saying, what does that even mean?
Doing life with someone means you have, at minimum a person, but at best, people whom you trust to support you with your “stuff”. And you do the same for them.
Stuff being whatever your issues, problems, triumphs, celebrations, life moments are.
We all have issues, problems, triumphs, celebrations, and life moments.you are not the only one who has issues. We all do! Click To Tweet
This month is actually self help awareness month. Who knew?
It got me to thinking about my church back home, New Community Bible Fellowship (NCBF). Our tag line is we do life together.
NCBF had a concentrated focus on members getting connected via small life groups that were topic focused.
When I first started going I was having issues with my daughters father. Baby daddy issues…lol. So I chose to go to the single moms group. Even though I came in at the end of he season, I immediately got connected with some women who encouraged me and spoke positivity over my situation. It was just what I needed at the time.
From there, I got involved in the Titus group. A women’s group focused on the importance of personal growth and mentoring. It was so appropriate for the season. I was newly engaged and it’s when I truly tapped into my desire to continually be a better woman and help other women grow. When dropped the notion that female friendships didn’t work. I opened up to the idea that having other good women around me would help me be better.
The decision to allow myself to do life together with other people was one of the greatest ways that I have helped myself.
I continued on into a marriage group with my new husband, and then a wives group, and even a motherhood group which was right on time when I was ready to check out and give up with my daughter.
In every group I’ve met new people, with similar issues. We watched each other grow through some hard times, make some hard decisions and even celebrated overcoming and victory.Life is better when you do it together Click To Tweet
I cannot stress the importance on helping yourself through involving yourself in a community who wants to see you grow and glow up.
Even if life feels great right now, I encourage you to find your community and start supporting others.
You may be wondering how getting involved with other people is a way to help yourself.
Self help means to put for effort and utilize resources to help yourself. So while doing life together does involve other people. You have to make a conscious decision to be willing to be open. To allow yourself to interact and mingle with people in a transparent and real way.
So choosing to do life with others is a simple strategy that you can use to help yourself.
Life is so much better when you do life together.
You have been made aware. Mission accomplished.
