Connection

Our inherent need to feel closer to one another in a physical and spiritual sense is what connects us.

The fundamental nature of being human is longing for social acceptance and feeling connected to a tribe, to belong, to be understood and to understand our own identity through the other.

When our connections are broken they cause us great pain, unrest and anxiety. From social connections through physical birth, our nature is perpetually intertwined in the connections we have to others.

The world is open planned, open sourced, socially connected, although some of us live in mental isolation and fear from our own insecurities and doubt. We move forward through the exploration of ourselves.

Learn to love, trust and allow others into our lives despite the potential for that connection to be broken.

Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

– Alfred Lord Tennyson
