Connecting to others is what life’s about
Without meaningful connections life becomes meaningless
Connection is based on vulnerability
Letting our guard down
Appearing less than perfect
Admitting to not knowing
To uncertainty
To confusion
Asking for help when we fall down
Sharing the good and the hard times

If we let in someone into our life
And confide in them
They will confide in us
But someone has to have the courage
To be the first one

We have all known adversity
But we will only share that with
People we feel close to
Those who won’t judge us
Those who have time for us
Those who are willing to hang around
In tough times

These kinds of connection
Only come about if we are open
About our ups and downs
And are willing to take off the mask
Of feeling fine all the time
