There are 7 billion people in the world, all unique. Sometimes in the midst of this madness, we meet someone and talk.
Connecting with people is one of the greatest joys in life.
Discovering a common humanity with someone, sharing in their story. It’s energising.
Sometimes that person might become a partner, and that connection is life-changing. More often that person is just a new friend. But a new friendship is still wonderful.
And it starts with a conversation.
We are each unique in the combination of how we were raised, where we have lived, what our passions are, what our opinions & beliefs are, and what our experiences have been. While that uniqueness is special, it’s also limiting.
So we need to connect with others to open up our world to the wider world.
It’s in connecting with others that we become bigger than ourselves.
And through connection and seeing another’s perspective, we may discover a part of ourselves that we didn’t realise was there.
