Sometimes we get the impression that we have to handle all life throws at us alone, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. We are social beings, meant to lean on our community in difficult times. Foster connection by reaching out when you need help and being there for someone in need when the time comes. We can find ways to connect in this culture of independence and create the community we've all been missing so deeply.
Today's words are by Brené Brown from Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead.
Healing Words is an ongoing series with the intention of once a day shifting focus away from suffering and onto healing. Healing is a daily practice of listening to your inner voice and turning pain into purpose.
Please feel free to share words that have helped you heal or your thoughts on these healing words.
