Have you ever sat down with someone and opened up to them without even realizing where the conversation would take you?
How did you leave that conversation feeling? Relieved? Rejuvenated? Closer to that person?
Deeper conversations, planned or not, make space to either begin or strengthen connections and relationships. Long and deep conversations are important for personal development, and overall happiness. Meaningful conversations are important to maintain and create relationships.
Making space for a deeper conversation with spouses, loved ones, friends, and colleagues can strengthen the connection you have with one another.
