We each, individually, think we got this. We KNOW we’ve got this. Our friends and followers send us supportive quotes about how we’ve got this. In some ways, from some perspectives, they are right. AND there is much more to the story.
We are hardwired to connect, to need connection.
And we are hard wired to have at least some degree of autonomy. Learning to live in the dance between connection, sometimes called communion, and autonomy, is an important part of leading a healthy, thriving life.
Your typologies, beliefs, cultural background, experience and evolution all come in to play around your relationship to autonomy and communion.
