Are You A Safe Space For Communication?

Some people would never share the things that are important to them because they already feel as though they would be judged.

In so many cases, true communication is penalized.

In a world that asks us to break up who we are, be innovative, have a beginner’s mind, learn from your mistakes, the hypocrisy is that none of this is actually happening.

What did you learn?

That it is not okay to be you.

You must try to be someone else, or try to fit into a mold of who you are wanted to be. You will die trying and this is the last thing you should do.

Where does innovation get to live in this environment?

Where does possibility show up when everyone wants to put their own filters on everyone else’s communication.

The minute you think you know them, you’ve lost the plot and the person.

Once we know all about who the other person is, that relationship is dead.

That just means we weren’t really listening, to begin with.

I used to think that the worst thing in life was to end up alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel alone. — Robin Williams
