Maybe it’s just me, but I can think of loads of times that I have shied away from making a connection, told myself I couldn’t reconnect with someone because it had been too long, or let a story I had concocted in my head convince me that I shouldn’t connect with someone. I don’t really think it is just me. Despite the fact that the science is clear – we are social beings that are happier in connection, we come up with stories that can be fatal to building, rejuvenating and strengthening our connections. In today’s episode, I explore some of these stories as well as offer what happened when I pushed through some of mine.
