With others

Empathy and the connection it creates

Have you ever tried to share something personal with someone and they seemed to make you feel as though you are being ungrateful for the good things in your life? They try to point out the positive things about the situation instead of addressing the pain or hurt that you are going through? I have been there and I know how it feels.

Brené Brown has the best term to describe this. Silver-lining your situation. I have done this to others before too. Learning to connect with others is also about recognising that we are all humans and are very much capable of disconnecting with someone who is trying to create a genuine connection with us. This video is a great reminder even for those of us who are always trying to reach out, show up and create real connection with others. ❤
