Connecting is such a human condition. We need to feel connected to others on a day to day basis. We strive to make connections based on like thinking or our own interests. It’s difficult to say the least.
Fitting in is a human condition that we set ourselves up for failure with. While we look for the connections where we do fit in, we either loose our uniqueness or others find us too different. All to often we are afraid to embrace what is different from ourselves. And all to often, that fear causes us to miss out on some of the most interesting connections.
We’ve all met someone and thought “She’s nice. I like her.” and as our lives go on, we forget about that connection until the next time we see them. I personally need to strive to be better at that with out looking pushy. My personal circle is small due to my mom’s and son’s illnesses. Now that Mom is gone, I find myself missing the connections I had from before I began taking care of her.
How do you see connections?
