And Universal Health Care would help with self-health care, but I digress (only a little):
Some years ago I was stuck in my habit of “over-complying,” as one person put it, and trying to meet the needs of everyone else rather than my own. Against the background of increasing world lack of connection, it seemed then, and still seems, perhaps more so now, that connection and working to understand one another is crucial to individual and world-wide health?
This post comes from A. Michelle’s interesting post .
…after the attacks a few hundred miles away. It seems Paris is all anyone can talk about today, and the radicalization of kids here. But no one wants to talk about the injustices and social problems that the manipulators who manage to brain-wash kids used to do so.
It is that feeling of disconnectedness … I keep rolling up my sleeves one more time, and once again into the breech, dear friends, …

So, it turns out that NVC does help at least a bit. De-escalation, listening, trying to understand all points of view. How does connection, or the lack thereof, play into our choices and our actions, examined and un-examined?
(Did I mention that comprehensive health care for all would help?)
Yassas, γεια σας!
Action Items in support of connection that you can take right now:
1.) Search for two different resources for connecting with people you do not know.
2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.
3.) Share your thoughts about connecting with people you do (already) know, and whether that is easier or more difficult than connecting with new people,
4.) Write a blog post or tweet that uses those thoughts, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.
