“You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.”

“You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.”

–Indira Gandhi

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.
