I sometimes speak to a demotivated community builder/manager.
This shouldn't need to be said, but sometimes it does. The work you do is amazing. Your community work is incredible, beyond incredible. You bring people together and give them a sense of belonging. Dozens of studiess show that sense of belonging makes people happier, healthier, wealthier. People that belong to a group live longer and better. That's all because of you.
To take a group of disconnected individuals and foster a sense of community between them is an unbelievable achievement. It’s work worth doing. It’s work worth believing in. It's work worth getting out of bed in the morning simply to see what else you can make happen for your members today.
It's worth remembering that if you're having a bad day.
