Just a quick reminder on connection. So I have a confession: I watch some trash reality TV. Not often, but I do watch it, especially when I’m sick. It’s something to keep in the background and I don’t care if I fall asleep while watching it. I woke up to a series I’ve never watched before, located in southern California and I left it on because I love SoCal. It happened to be an episode where one of the women was talking about healing the things inside of her originating from childhood. Yes, I know these women are on a different level financially than most of us, however, hearing her discuss the same things that I was going through when it comes to healing, I know we all go through the same thing.
The important thing is to share those stories. We all have these ideas and perceptions in our minds that our stories aren’t worthy or that they have to play out a certain way in order to be valid, but the truth is, the more we share our stories, the more we will see we have in common. We can more easily help each other navigate through the experiences we all have. No matter where we are in life, we’ve all got something we carry and we don’t always know what may relate to someone else. We can’t let our idea of someone else shape our experience of them, just like we wouldn’t want to let someone’s idea of us shape who we are. It doesn’t matter who we are or where we are from, we are all human and have the same experience.
