How well do you know someone; I mean really know someone? When we experience a connection with someone, we know everything there is to know.
It’s easy to feel that we know someone well, but the little bits we know about them isn’t the same as knowing or having a soul connection. We can know someone for twenty years and still not know anything about that person; or we can know someone for a year and know everything we need to know. I believe that is true.
In society it’s easy to scratch at the surface as far as relationships or friendships are concerned, which is why it is even more important for us to be aware of the level of connection and the bonds we have. I believe that if we get to know the people we have in our lives and they’re right for us, we will value those friendships more deeply and will avoid problems such as loneliness.
We will also go on to recognise our own unique self-worth, which will help us go on to form better relationships. It has become easier to meet and interact with new people through social media, but because we haven’t always grown up with the people we meet on line, we seem to connect with them differently; but not always in a good way.
What I know is that we need to put time, effort and compassion into all our relationships if they are going to work, if we are going to continue to form deep, stronger and more meaningful relationships.
