It's Sunita here.
Pick a friend.Make the time.
To sit together.
Not a bunch of friends.
Sit. Ask. Tell. Be quiet. Be deliberate in your intention to connect. Be honest in your conversation.
Be mindful of not using the word ‘busy’ in your conversation.
Let the time unfold instead of having a plan for the visit.
Above all, be kind and open.
I had a friend do that for me recently.
Our nervous system responds to such events in a very positive way.
Connecting to others is a primal need and drive of ours.
We are living in times that are not conducive or structured for such evenings to be common, unless we make them happen. We are trained to keep saying, and ultimately believing, that we are busy.
That is a lie.
Often, we find our worth only when we have a pile up of things to do. And people to meet. But inside, we are left feeling deeply unsatisfied, stressed, and yearning for meaning.
We have control of our time.
We have a choice.
Thank you friend, for choosing to be with me.
