Ever heard the sentiment "like attracts like"? It means, if you are nice, nice people will be attracted to your presence. If you are kind, kind people will be attracted to your presence as well.
It's why society gets broken down into groups - likeness. Those who share similar experiences, cultures, etc will naturally group together.
So, if you want kind, loving, generous, faith-filled people in your community, be a person who embodies those characteristics. When you have good people around you your life will be better (not perfect or without pain). Having a positive community is a key element of healing.
