Connection is the energy created between people when they feel seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.
If you’re a pet person, think back on your favorite cat or dog.
Do they come running in excitement when you return home?
Do you pet them, pick them up, or cuddle them?
Do they know they can depend on you for more than just food and water?
Are you companions to each other, each deriving comfort from the closeness of the other?
Do you still love them even when they have dog breath, mange, rub their butt across the rug,
hack up hair balls on the floor, vomit on your bed,
or intentionally knock over any beverage left unattended….every…single…day?
Do not the people closest to you deserve the same quality of relationship?
