“You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.”
This is so true in dating and relationships.
If you’re communicating with your guard up, with walls, with resentment, with suspicion, with heart barriers – you won’t truly connect with someone.
We need to open that fist….
Open our hearts….
Open our minds…
Open up to the possibilities of what could be in a communication dance with someone.
Connecting with another person is creative. It’s an art form. It’s Improv.
Shutting down possibilities doesn’t work when connecting with someone in dating or in a relationship.
People can feel when we do it. They don’t know what it is, but they feel something is off.
