I’m interested in the first two.
I had never experienced the feelings of safety and security living on my own as I did when lived in community with people whom I interacted with on a regular basis. I am not a hyper-social person. I need and like a lot of ‘alone time’. I also do not like sharing a living space with anyone. That being said, I love living in community; sharing resources; sharing meals; ride-sharing; knowing people are keeping an eye on my place and stuff; knowing people have my back.
Community life isn’t for everyone, but many people do find it rewarding and many others seek that kind of experience.
