No one wants to ‘feel’ alone in the sense of feeling isolated and lonely.
We understand the importance of alone time and solitude, but we also know that as humans it’s vital for all of us to engage socially. But it doesn’t always feel great. Sometimes relationships can feel a lot more trouble than they’re worth.
However, this doesn’t always have to be the case. Relationships are an inevitable part of life, and create plenty of great stuff that you can’t find when you’re alone.
The truth is when we find ‘our’ people things change for the better.
In this week’s episode I explore 6 characteristics of relationships in which introverts and highly sensitive people can truly thrive. And what we can do to create the foundations for such a relationship to develop.
The 6 characteristics that many of us truly need in relationships:
- A Relationship That Fills Your (creative) Energy Reserves
- A Relationship With a Shared Sense of Humour
- A Relationship That Makes You Feel Good About Your Hopes and Dreams
- A Relationship That Brings Comfort to Discomfort
- A Relationship That Understands The Need for Space Without Explanation
- A Relationship In Which You Can Be Alone Together
Over to You
