Benefits of Interacting With Like-Minded People

Have you ever felt that pull or draw to a person but couldn’t really figure out why? The answer may be as simple as…

You Are Like-Minded

People who share the same opinions, ideas, interests, hobbies, passions, or side hustles are most often described as being like-minded. Yep… and the more you get to know them you often find you are like-minded in more than one area.

People who are like minded often are:

  • Agreeable
  • Harmonious
  • Concurring
  • Simular
  • United
  • Compatible
  • Unanimous

Wow…Those are some really positive words to describe a relationship!!!

Nowhere in that list did you see words like:

  • Argumentative
  • Frustrating
  • Fragmented
  • Incompatable
  • Divided
  • Disagreeable

Yes, you got it…those are some really negative words to describe relationships with people who are not like-minded.

I don’t know about you but I personally crave relationships with like-minded people. Having been brought up in a home where there was constant discord, I prefer peace and harmony. Is that always possible?

No…Emphatically NO!!!

Everyone is unique and has their own individual likes and dislikes, opinions, and mannerisms. Besides, if everyone were like-minded it would be like the movie “The Stepford Wives”. While being around people who are not like-minded often challenges us to see life through a different lens and have to struggle to be patient, kind, and even tolerant at times. All of that is a lot of work though!

I don’t know about you but for me, life is hard enough as it is…I need:

  • Encouragement when I’m down
  • Someone cheering me on
  • Someone to celebrate my wins
  • Someone to see me
  • To feel relevant

Like-minded people do all that and more!!!

If you haven’t found your tribe of Like-Minded people, here are some ideas to help!

  • Get social. Not scrolling through Facebook, Instagram or TikTok but by joining a group. Search for groups within those platforms that have commonalities with you. I personally have joined many!
