Our connections to others make us vulnerable, but they are also what make us human. Without social and intimate connections to others, our lives are often empty and meaningless. To be fully human means that we must connect to others and form relationships based on caring, trust, compassion, and love. We must reach out to others, and we must let them in. We must open ourselves to others so that they can see and begin to love the real person each one of us is, and so that we may see and love each of them as well.
When we operate from a place of honesty and vulnerability, we can connect with others and find meaning in our lives.
When we open our hearts to others with our true beings we will encounter others that we truly connect with.
When we learn that we need others as they need us we will learn to connect with them and form bonds of friendship and true caring.
Once we allow ourselves to be open and vulnerable, our souls can connect with the souls of others and our connections will heal us and make us whole.
