GATHER / the importance of coffee dates

You are not in this alone

Let me say that one. more. time.

You are not in this alone. 

Yesterday was spent with a good friend of mine. We are always really open with each other, but yesterday, we seemed to melt into a space of vulnerability right from the get go. In talking to each other about our stressors, our current state of mind, and the things that were weighing us down. I realized that we are all walking around in this world thinking that our problems are our own. That they are singular and are not felt by other people. We we allow ourselves to really speak from that place of vulnerability, it becomes easy for others to say "I feel that too".

Sometimes all we need is someone else to acknowledge where we are at, to help us understand how to keep moving forward.

Take a trusted friend out for coffee, tell them how you really feel; no guards, no pretension, just truth. You will leave feeling a deeper, more profound connection to your friend and yourself.

We all need each other and we are all in this together. Who knew a coffee date could do that.
