If you want to belong, find a third place. What’s available in your community?

You don’t need to take on the herculean task of making new friends to be less lonely. You may just need a third place.

“It is where you feel most connected with the people around you, and that you have people who love you and that you love.”

Loneliness is a growing problem in our social media saturated world.   Please add a comment if you have a gathering, event or network in your community that encourages social interaction, community discussion or anything else that nurtures the human spirit. 

Here are examples in Missoula:
