What makes something better is connection.
Wow! I find that statement by Dr. Brene Brown to be very powerful for the truth that it holds.
Connection makes something better. Definitely true for our reconciliation. We had lost our connection. We have it back now and that has made it better for me.
Also, connecting with people here at SI definitely absolutely made it better for me. That is why SI is so powerful. Connecting us all together really does make it better.
Her explanation in knowing the difference between sympathy and empathy is, as usual, spot on. I really like what Dr. Brown has to say.
