IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
"To find your people, you have to know how to signal your passions and interests and seek out theirs."
This is a group based on being of or in a certain place.
To build such communities, use dedicated websites or use geolocation on your social media to find information about upcoming events, news and people close to you that you might find interesting.
This is a group driven by a shared interest in a particular subject (for example, anti-animal abuse).
It is slightly different from a community based on a common activity.
Provident communities are the product of seemingly random connections (like meeting friends in high school who introduce you to your future funders on Kickstarter).
However, this process is not as random as it appears.
Purposeful communities are those that share a vision of the world. They don’t always have user groups and are often not geography dependent.
Finding people with a common purpose means finding those who share a concrete commitment to a specific cause, and this involves a more sophisticated method of signaling and seeking.

When you're an impostor, you expect to be exposed at any time. You feel that at some point, someone might appear and see you for the fraud you think you are.

Viruses aren’t the only things that spread through networks of people. Attitudes and behaviors do too. And we should take advantage of it.
Spreading happiness and kindness right now is ...
70% of our happiness comes from your relationships with other people. And the social distancing situation has left some with zero people around them.
So reach out. Extended time without social contact is bad: Send a text, make that phone/video call, anything you want to let people know you care and are thinking about them.
Ask people if they need anything. There are people out there in need of a little more than well wishes right now. And when people see others helping, they’re more likely to help.
Also, if you need help, don’t be afraid to ask for it.
