Recently, I've seen the word “tribe” flying around, particularly on the internet. It refers to a group of people who share a common interest, usually in the form of a close knit group of friends or an online community. The hashtag #findyourtribe has over 300,000 hits on Instagram, and #findyourtribeandlovethemhard has nearly as much traction. People are seeking a community that gives them a feeling of unity and collective purpose. Belonging to a tribe means that we are not alone. We are surrounded by people with whom we can face the world as a unified front.
