In all relationships, we are either experiencing connection with the other person or else, we are moving away from it.
In my trainings over the years, I have found that two of the more difficult aspects of connection are the difference between: observation (fact) and Interpretation of the Facts (judgement).
If we are in interpretation, it’s easy to hook into the “story” of wrongness and this can create distance and fear between us. When we are able to name the “facts”, ie the “observation” of what triggered us, we can drop the “story” and come back to what actually happened. Now it’s so much easier for the other person to hear us and connection becomes so much simpler.
In this week’s video, I discuss these differences and how they apply to very real situations that many of us experience daily.
Wishing you all the best for a wonderful week ahead.
