Having trouble connecting with someone in your life? Know this. Every person you meet desires the same things:

1. To be loved.

2. To be seen.

3. To be happy.

4. To feel like they matter.

This is true for the difficult relative you can’t get along with. It’s true of your boss, your kids, and your spouse. This means that with every encounter you can choose to grow closer or further apart by:

1) Deciding to end abuse.

2) By choosing to be more mindful of how you’re feeling before you react.

3) By holding compassion for the self-sabotaging ways we all partake in to protect our injured selves.

If you’re in need of assistance in any of the above, you’ll glean wisdom, advice and insights in our top posts below.
