So much of life can be consumed by stress and anxiety. Each individual, no matter their circumstances, is faced with challenges in life that may produce negative feelings or emotions. For those we serve, this anxiety may manifest in the form of finding a next meal, paying rent or buying adequate clothing for their children. For those in our professional field this anxiety may be trauma induced due to past administrative experiences, meeting a funding deadline, or reaching the goals in communities that we strive for. No matter the circumstances, there is a common bond that all of us share to combat such anxieties. Regardless of social class, race or gender, the power of community can unite us all and create a support system that offers positive growth and development through difficult times. Community can be family, a circle of friends, a group of co-workers or a neighborhood of caring residents who want to make a difference by lending their emotional support. Your community can be as big or as small as you want it to be. Your community can give and it can also take. It can solve your problems or simply listen to those problems that at the moment, may seem unsolvable. When we feel these anxieties we must look ahead towards the future and ask ourselves: What is my community? What does my community mean to me? How can I seek help from my community and how can I give back? Remember, our community is all around us and we can create it, mold it and nurture it the way we want it to be.
