False Sense of….

com·mu·ni·ty
kəˈmyo͞onədē/
noun
  1. 1. a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
    “Rhode Island’s Japanese community”

    “the sense of community that organized religion can provide”
    In the christian community they like to promote community and friendship, acceptance and accountability. They like to call you friend. But lately I have been feeling it is all a false sense of friendship. A false sense of genuineness. A false sense of community.
    I have recently moved to a different state, away from all things familiar. No friends or community to account for, having to be dependent on my gps to get to most places and now having to make all new friends. I am fortunate to have two sisters living in the same city, so I at least have them.
    I moved three weeks ago and only four people have messaged me to see how things are going. Four. Out of all the people I know…and there is quiet a few people, four people cared to see how I am doing. I for some crazy and I guess unrealistic reason believed that more than four people would see how I am doing. I suppose it being human nature, out of sight out of mind, out of daily, weekly community…you will slowly fade away from peoples minds. If you do pop in their heads they don’t pursue that urge to say hello.
    I guess this is a common reality. One in which, proves who your true friends are.
    So I thank you, Janaya, Briana, Anthony and Jen for being true friends. I love you and miss you!
