Why Being Part of a Tribe is Important (S & L linkup #1)


Being a part of a tribe is important.

Did you know that we were created for relationships? We were created to be seen, known and loved!

Friendship with women is like a sisterhood. It helps us belong and be known. It fuels creativity, strengthens, and grows us. We go deep instead of stay to the surface. This is very powerful because when we go deep in friendship it forms a bond and is a force all on its own. When we form authentic relationships we find out more about ourselves and it grows us.

Find your tribe, friend! 

I’m blessed to be a part of several different tribes, in person and online with blogging and also creatives on Instagram. Knowing people from all walks of life have certainly blessed my life!

Being a part of a tribe is important. Here are 4 tips to help!

Tips for finding your tribe:

Be real. 

#1 tip. When we’re authentic with each other it breaks down walls. It builds lasting friendships and breeds the “oh, you too?” phenomenon. There’s nothing like talking with a friend and finding out that maybe you have the same quirks. Being real is an automatic connector. If you want connection, you gotta be real!

Lose the judgment.

Decide to look past whats on the outside and get to know their soul. We’ve all gone through stuff. We’ve all had our regrets. Look past all the junk and see the beauty, because it’s there.

Put yourself out there.

Being the newbie is hard, let’s be honest. But, if we want to find a tribe it’s essential that we put ourselves out there. It might be awkward at first, but do it! Just do it. The awkwardness will be so worth it in the long run.

Ditch the victim mentality.

In my life, I’ve failed at connecting with some great people simply because I played victim. I felt like if they really wanted to be my friend that they would reach out to me. It’s the “nobody likes me, I think I’ll go eat worms” mentality. And today, I say let’s punch that mentality in the face. It’s a decision. You’re beautiful my friend. You have gifts and talents that others need in their life. You captivate a beauty that no one else has and you’re one of a kind!

Find a tribe is important, and when you find them, love them hard!


So, find a tribe, and love them hard!

    Love this! Thanks for the new link up, I’m excited to get to know some new bloggers and connecting with some authentic Christian women.

  2. Blessings on your new linkup, Shannon! Love your tips here about finding a tribe! Wise advice!

  3. I love this so much. I lost my tribe a few years ago because I drew a “no more nonsense” line. I’ve slowly been rebuilding it, and I tell you what, it’s hard. But the encouragement you share here is so spot on. We have to be willing to share our heart and lives, and move beyond the surface stuff to true authentic friendship. So good, Shannon!!
