Sometimes we’ve got to do things you may not want to do. And I’m not being facetious or glib when I say it. There will be times where your participation will be needed after the end.
If you join a group, you’ll have to pull your own weight. No one is going to let you sit around and leech off the hard work of others for very long. Dead weight will be cut as soon as possible and when you need someone to save your back, you’d better be willing to save theirs in return.
Participation in many forms will be important—whether it’s helping to make the place you call home thrive, or out in the field where combat or collecting supplies is of the utmost important—and if you don’t stand up to be counted, you’ll be left at the wayside the first time the opportunity arises.
Participation: it’s in you to give.
So give it, and give it freely.
