Anthony Hopkins is a great actor but someone else is a wise writer

(at least physically at first, it takes longer to move on in your mind emotionally but it gets better)You may have seen the meme with these great words attributed to Sir Anthony. He didn’t write it , but no matter, I needed to see and read this yesterday. If you are around people who don’t want to change, move on. And I love how it says if you do give up on them,, you will find another community. So true. Community is not just built by people who buy houses near each other, esp. if they fit the bill to what is in this essay.

About CJ

I was a Spanish teacher for 5 years in the Public School system in 3 different states. I homeschooled and taught at a democratic free school. I heard about cohousing in 2010 and wanted to move in right away. I met a group building one in 2018 and got to move in the summer of 2019. It only took a year to want out.

    I want to share that this may be my last comment on this blog. While I support insightful thinking around Cohousing in all its forms the constant negative threads gets tiresome. I get that Cohousing not a panacea and living successfully in one takes work but it is not for everyone. I wish you well in your future living situations.

      Thank you for your honesty. I was trying to be more positive lately but sometimes my emotions bubble up and there is nowhere to speak the negative. I also hear from those having a hard time and choosing to leave or figure out how to stay. I also know that all the blogs out there on cohousing sites are positive (they have to be since they want people to live there). There are one or two that aren’t particular to one place that have some of the challenges. I just wish I had heard more of a balance since it is a financial and personal investment to move into a place with a lot of people. Maybe no one will ever read my blog, but it’s out there for those who are curious and it helps me heal from something I never expected to happen. In the most recent Communities magazine, one group dreamed of all the best things they wanted when planning to live together. and a lawyer told them to also think of all the worse.
