Connection happens when you get:

  • Concrete help such as having a friend help you figure out your schedule
  • Emotional support, like hearing someone say “I’m really sorry you are having such a tough time today”
  • Perspective, like being reminded that even the moodiest teenagers eventually grow up
  • Advice, such as a suggestion that you plan your daily workout schedule ahead of time.
  • Validation, like learning that other folks cry at sad movies too.
