I love interdependence. We thrive when we collaborate and build community. We are all craving connection and relationship. Interdependence helps us feel less stressed and more effective. There is a deep satisfaction that comes from building that trust and caring.
Very few of us seek theoretical knowledge. Many of us love to hear stories. We love to hear the stories of ancestors, the elderly, and children. We love to tell our story. We need to be heard. We lean in when we hear personal stories. Stories help us feel like family.
We need to be transparent and vulnerable. The more we share our story, the more we become self-aware and whole. The more we listen to other stories, the more our worldview expands and we learn we are more similar than we are different.
"You alone can do it, but you cannot do it alone." - O. Hobart Mowrer
