So often we get caught up in feeling the need to communicate.
It is true that we need to communicate. But the fact is that we are already doing that.
We are always communicating.
Sometimes we do it well. Other times we do it poorly. But we never don’t communicate.
What about connecting? Are we always connecting? That is another story.
What do you think is more important? Communicating or connecting?
I believe it is connecting. The reason I believe this is because when we are connected with our spouse it is easier to communicate. When we are disconnected with them it is harder.
It is when we are deeply connected that we truly hear another.
It is when we are connected most that we hear best.
I recently watched a TED talk that was one of the best I have ever seen. I want to share it with you here.
The speaker is a psychotherapist from Israel whose story is riveting.
She presents a paradigm of connection that involves three main elements: the space, the bridge and the encounter.
I highly recommend taking the time to watch. It will be well worth it.

Honor the sacred space between you. Build a bridge to his or her world. Really encounter your spouse.
