Me and my besties, Anitra!

Finding your tribe will be one of the most important things you do in your life. Let’s go over why it’s so important. And what the hell is a tribe anyway?


Your tribe is literally your people. They’re the people in your life, who may not be your family, but you’ve grown to treat each other like your family. If you’re like me, then your parents might not have been the most understanding to your dreams and goals. And it’s not because they were “bad” parents; they thought they were doing the best when it comes to that. And it becomes easy to listen to your parent’s dreams for you over the ones you have for yourself. But when you realize that your dreams are ones different from your parents, that’s when your tribe comes in.

Your tribe are the people who GET you. They understand your dreams and goals. They will never judge you but won’t hesitate to keep it real with you when you’re f-cking up (you know that friend that snatches edges on a regular when ish gets real). They accept you for who you are, and won’t make you feel bad when you try something. And you’d do the same for them. When you’re with your tribe, your heart soars and you become your best version of yourself, creatively, spiritually – all that. See why a tribe is so important? So how do you find yours?

1. Figure out what you like.

Is it the theater? Books? Makeup? Whatever you like, trust me, there are so many others who like the same things just as you and are waiting to be scooped up in a tribe! Or better yet, maybe when you find someone with a common interest, they can be your tribe guide. Figure out your interests, first and foremost. Know the person you want to become.

    Love this post! I’m kind of at a crossroads in my life, I have the same group of friends for a long time, but I find myself not connecting with them any more. Most of them are married and/or with kids and I am neither of those. Although I have a wonderful boyfriend who I get along with very well and he actively tries to takes an interest in what I like and vice versa. But there’s just something about good conversations with another woman. I love the show Insecure and I have no one to talk with about it (this is just one very small example). I just feel like I don’t have anything in common with the people around me, it’s time to change this.
