Share your stories to nourish your body and soul.
Reconnect for Health
The recent pandemic has thrown the world a bit out of whack, hasn’t it? We aren’t gathering together and swapping stories over drinks or holding meaningful conversations during meals. Family events have been postponed. Tiny cracks in relationships grow into huge canyons. Isolation has left us a bit adrift. But what can we do?
Instead of face-to-face discussions, where we can watch expressions and listen for the intent behind the words, now we have to figure out what someone means from an autocorrected text or a missive on social media. Texts and posts are short, which may make them seem abrupt and rude. I’m betting people don’t intend to act that way. They are busy, exhausted and overwhelmed.
How can we reconnect with friends and loved ones and get back to healthier relationships?
Share Your Stories Authentically
In every culture, stories are the bridge between communities and personal relationships. That’s why the Bible and other holy books are filled with parables and narratives. We learn through stories. We knit our lives together through tales of woe and exultation.
When we hear people’s stories, we start to see how similar we are. If we embrace our similarities and appreciate our differences, we build connections and forge relationships. We tighten those bonds by letting people know who we really are.
Take time to share your stories with your loved ones, friends and neighbors. Listen to their adventures and histories. Video chat or pick up the phone and tell someone a few of your stories. Learn a bit about them and let them get to know you.
Relationships nourish your soul. Share from your heart to forge new and better relationships. And always, always write your stories down for posterity.
