Three great tips from Lance Burdett
Never ever be afraid to ask for help. Never ever be afraid to share your story. Never ever be afraid to apologise.
Asking for help is a sign of true courage and strength, a true hero. It takes courage to admit that you don't have all the answers and that you need the support of others. Seeking help from a trusted friend, family member, or professional can make all the difference.
Sharing your story can be a powerful way to connect with others. By sharing your experiences, you might just help someone else feel less alone.
Additionally, when we talk, we release the positive hormone, oxytocin. Oxytocin is often termed the love hormone, yet it is more than that, it is about the human bonding process. Oxytocin is released when we talk with someone in a deep and meaningful conversation. Oxytocin helps to dissolve cortisol.
Apologising is a crucial part of building and maintaining healthy relationships. We all make mistakes, but owning up to them and taking responsibility shows that you value the other person and their feelings. There is not one person who has never made a mistake, and it's never too late to apologise and make things right.
It is these moments of vulnerability and humility that can help us form stronger connections with those around us. When we converse with others in person, we are participating in a centuries-old practice - sharing, caring, helping, listening, telling, laughing - the very things that make us who we are as humans.
