Relationship + intimacy skills
We're wired for connection. It's also the thing we're the most terrified of.
We're not born knowing how to relate to others. It takes caring, compassion, courage, mistakes, heartbreak and tears to grow into a better version of ourselves. I have no doubt it's the most important thing we're here to do.
Communication creates connection because it allows us to see that we're more alike than different. Being willing to face inevitable conflict that shows up when two individuals share any degree of intimacy is a required skill for meaningful relationship.
