In the book ‘The Gift of Imperfection.’ Brene’ Brown defines connection “ as the energy that exist between people when they feel, seen, heard and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”

When do you feel connected to others?

Do you think there is a difference between being connected and being involved?

During the pandemic have you found it hard to connect?

A passage from the book states:

“In our technology-crazed world, we’ve confused being communicative with feeling connected. Just because we’re plugged in, doesn’t mean we feel seen and heard. In fact, hyper-communication can mean we spend more time on Facebook than we do face-to-face with the people we care about.”

I admit I personally struggle with asking for help. I don’t like anyone knowing I need help. I am all up for helping others, but when others help me it makes me uncomfortable. 

Do you ask for help when you need it? 

On the occasions I do ask for help, it is only to a very small select one or two. I wonder if it’s because they are the only ones I truly feel “connected” too? Personally, I don’t think so. I believe I am connected to many people for many different reasons. I only reveal my true sorrow, wounds and pain with those I know love me unconditionally.

Who do you feel most comfortable around?
