Going alone is tough because the road is barren, wind is blowing and the destination looks far.
And when you go along with community of people, the destination doesn’t come closer. But it does help in going farther than you might alone. Also the obstacles seems like small because there are many people to help you along.
It is give and take. You help when someone is lagging behind and then the same is reciprocated.
So try community swimming or make a community around swimming. Same like a book club. You swim, take care of each other and talk about it all the time. Go crazy about your community.
