Life revolves around relationships.
We're born into them. And the beauty of neurobiology illustrates how perfectly we're designed for them.
Most of our personal struggles arise out of learned behaviors and ways of coping from our earliest relationships - our families, for better or worse. Which later become our habits, and the way we move through the world as adults. Who we're attracted to, who we struggle with, who we feel safe with, and who triggers distress.
Even the way we relate to ourselves. Are we self-critical or kind? Impatient or available? Curious or shut down to our needs?
None of these things are an accident. And at the same time, they provide great mystery. A riddle to solve, a curiosity to behold.
How can we trust, feel safe, and thrive in our relationships? I think that's a beautiful conversation to have with oneself, and to build a life around answering.
