You have a greater circle of connection than you realize. Often we feel insignificant and like we are not doing anything of value, this is so untrue, you impact people without even being aware you do. Stop and look around at the people in your everyday.
Hello, My Friends
How is the way you do what you do affect those around you?
Do you know?
Do you even care?
Today I want to talk about relationships.
Even hermits have relationships.
We all have parents, family, friends, people we have contact with.
What is a relationship?
I’m using the definition of the way two or more people are connected.
Do you watch You Tube content? I hope you watch my channel.
Do you scroll through facebook, instagram, twitter, all the social feeds?
Do you purchase groceries from the supermarket, a farmers market, or a dairy?
Do you work with other people, face to face, or over zoom?
Each of these are considered a relationship.
You have an effect on them, and they have an effect on you.
If society and people where a lake, and you were a pebble being thrown into the lake, how many people would you affect? Like the ripple effect, starting small with you at the centre and moving out in ever greater circles.
Often we feel like we are alone, and lonely.
What we don’t see is how we are all interrelated to each other.
Every comment you type, has an effect.
Every reel you upload or download has an effect.
Every smile you pass onto to someone you greet in the shop or on the bus, or in the café, has an effect.
The way you interact with your family, and friends has an impact.
If you are always grumpy, and mean spirited, do the people around you enjoy your company? I’d say probably not. They may put up with you, or they may actually use your mood as a way of deflecting there own mood, making you responsible for their actions or non actions.
Today’s challenge is to stop and see the number of people you actually have an impact on. All those likes represent one person who took the time to click a button, and there were so many more who didn’t click.
Look at the cashier behind the counter, the person filling shelves, the person walking the dog, the bus driver, the car or truck driver also caught in rush hour traffic.
Stop and look at the health professionals who see many people everyday.
We are more connected than we think, and the way we relate to these people can leave a permanent mark on their lives, for their benefit and for yours.
Challenge the way you normally interact with the people around you, stop and actually see them as people.
Until next time, share your authentic self with someone you are sharing space with.
As a life coach, part of what I do is challenge your normal thinking. You don’t know what you don’t know, until you do.
I help bring clarity to what you do know, and shed a light on things you may not know.
If you are stuck, challenging your normal thinking can produce results you weren’t aware of.
Let’s begin a conversation about what you view connection to be.
