Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.John F. Kennedy
Connecting with others is great. It’s something that’s important to me for many reasons. One that comes to mind first is that I remember how alone I felt. I had a great job with an amazing baby girl. I had my own place and dreams for the future. But even with all those things, I felt so alone. I felt sad and ashamed even though I had amazing accomplishments. When I felt alone, conversations with strangers that cared about how I really felt were rare. Even so, every time these positive conversations happened, my hope for the future grew. I felt inspired. I felt like maybe I could make it a bit longer. They way that you connect with those around is more valuable than you will ever know. So if you’re ever wondering how you can connect to others, start with basics. It’s always more valuable than you think.
