Starting the Conversation

Sharing, Belonging, Friendship  - Words that are important to us!

Starting a conversation - along the way, all of us have paused and reflected on how to share what is important to us. Sometimes it can be hard to find the right words to start such a conversation so we would like to get things started with the words that are important to us – sharing, belonging and friendship.

Finding the right word - we invite you to tell us in a word what the words sharing, belonging and friendship mean to you. For us it is words such as “respect”, “trust" and "caring".  We believe that by sharing with others that we trust and respect we build more meaningful relationships based on creating a sense of belonging and friendship with those we care about and who care about us.

Taking the first step - so join our conversation and tell us in a word what the words sharing, belonging and friendship mean to you by posting a comment below!

What was heard - in the weeks ahead we will tell you what words were shared with us as we do what we can to keep the conversation going!  Stay tuned for announcements regarding special events!


Finding the Right Word to Start the Conversation



  • The word that comes to mind for me is HOME, whether it’s a home that you were born into or one that you made with people who understand and support you.

  • Recovery – Sharing, Belonging, and Friendship are important ingredients of recovery.

  • Community – We all want to feel valued by our communities. I love that this endeavour is encouraging kindness and community support.

  • When thinking of friendship, I agree that trust and sharing are important to build a relationship, but I feel humour is also important because it brings lightheartedness and fun that encourages people to be themselves and more comfortable to strengthen a relationship.

  • Community – We want a community that welcomes and includes people with all types of gifts, strengths and talents, and allows these to be shared with others in an encouraging, exciting and open way.
