Finding My New Tribe

I’ve been lost. I was born into a family and raised by a village. But after you grow up, you have to surround yourselves with those that make you feel good and help you put one foot in front of the other.  This is your tribe.

I realized I’ve lost my tribe.

American journalist and writer Jane Howard is credited with the following quote: “Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family.  Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” I found these 12 steps important.

As I look to find a new tribe, I’ve come across many new things:

Sisters In Bloom

Sisters in Bloom is a Christian Woman Community.

(in)courage has a new (in)RL (In real life) and there is a group in Mt Pleasant/Charleston.

I don’t know if I’ll find my tribe at these places or not.  I’m not sure if I can go to Mt. Pleasant meetups.  They are not close to my home and I’m not ready, in any way, to create one, closer, right now, either.

I guess I still have a real trust issue with women, in general.  They scare me.  Some of you may understand this, because they’ve also experienced my burns, of the past.  Some of you will just go on thinking I’ve lost my mind.  That’s okay, too.

I am looking for a tribe that will lift my spirit, and help me hold onto the Light I’ve found.  I need a group that accepts me unconditionally.  I can accept some that almost believe like I do, instead of those that only believe as I do.  Most of all, I want those around me that believe in me.

Its taken a long time for me to find me. Now I need to find others who can find me, too.

Do you have a tribe?
