Loneliness is an unspoken truth in society. As someone who hasexperienced bouts of loneliness throughout my 30 years of life, it hasinflicted a wide array of emotions from despair, anger, hopelessness and grief.Throughout the darkest of moments, hope was restored by the meaningful coffeedates I mustered to book with friends and family as well as surrounding myselfin positive and inspiring spaces. The saying 'You are the sum of the 5 peopleyou hang-out with' couldn't be truer. This got me thinking about my circle or'tribe' and how it was disconnected and negative. Thanks to The Collective,I've found my 'tribe' of fearless creatives and life seekers whom I can bevulnerable and free to dream with.
