By Hand On The Hip - Priya Raghuveer - 8/01/2018

You are always looking for ways to bring people together in your community. Whether you have a shared passion for health, spirituality or fitness, there are so many ways you can join together to support and celebrate your enthusiasms. Choosing to set up your own community support group can be advantageous in many ways. You can help people conquer anxiety   and share their stories in a safe environment. In order to do this you need to be truly motivated to make a difference in your local area. If you think this venture is for you, consider the following reasons and you can get started.

1. To Bring People Together

There is nothing worse than feeling alone and isolated when you don’t quite fit in. Starting a support group bring people together into a loving community. Choosing your meeting space will be easier than you think, especially if you have a local church nearby. You might need to invest in more church chairs and other supplies to get the group going, but once it is off the ground, all of these people with a common interest will look forward to coming together regularly.

2. To Feel Fulfilled

Perhaps you have always wanted to give back to your community and feel a sense of fulfilment. Setting up this support group will help you to achieve personal as well as professional goals and it’s true that there’s no better feeling that giving back.

3. To Help Others

When you have been through something in your life, you often feel the need to help others who are going through the same issues. Watching people grow in confidence and happiness will be hugely rewarding if you set up this community group. Volunteering is a noble and gratifying job that might just help hundreds of people in your area.

4. To Discover People Like You

Like many people, you probably go through your lonely moments too when you need to talk to people who know what you think, feel and believe. This community group will help you to connect with people who are just like you; meeting up every week in a supportive and non-judgmental environment will help you to feel less isolated.

5. To Hear Other People’s Stories

Hearing how other people have dealt with their problems personally can help you to understand other sides of the story. It is true that community spirit is so important and coming together in a group will allow everybody to feel heard and understood in their own away. This type of all-inclusive approach will prevent people from feeling left out, isolated and alone when they have been through a difficult time.

So embark on a fulfilling and enjoyable journey with the people in your area. Come together for a common cause and take pride in what you can all achieve together. Whether you’re seeking advice from a traumatic incident in your past or sharing your love of yoga, there are so many reasons to bring your community together into a support group.
