How do we build meaningful connections? ∞ 💕∞
People want to connect, people want to feel good and special, but instead of building bridges of love we get pushed away by feelings of betrayal, fear, abandonment, exploitation, distrust and suspicion. ~
As soon as this happens we need to take a step back and ask ourselves:
Where are our edges to feel alive in life?
It’s our most challenging seasons that serve as our greatest teachers. ~
The reason why a lot of people leave relationships is because the minute they feel seen, their ego says “I’m out”- our ego is constantly looking for away to keep us in a safe container, it leads us to the things we are already great at, like business, work, social life, traveling,...
Although that is not necessarily wrong, it does keeps us away from deep meaningful relationships where we’ll be fully seen.
The biggest opportunity for our highest growth is in leaving our comfort zone in relationship to one another.
People will trigger us, test us, reveal where we still need to heal over & over again until we learn the lesson.
And yet, they can also call us forward into our greatest potential for growth at an exponential rate. If we let them.
We must be willing to lean into our relationships with compassion, honest communication & love, instead of running away the moment we feel annoyed, challenged and triggered. 📷credit @nothinmyst
