  1. However, there are many times when I just want a connection via a simple acknowledgement, and no more. An indication that I’ve been heard means worlds. I don’t need someone to (re)experience it with me, or to even know what I’m talking about. To have to explain the whole context is more painful. Just feel me, that’s enough.


    • Spot on! I feel the same actually. Sometimes I want/need a deeper engagement, and other times just having someone be present, just being there, even in a shared silence together, is enough.

      Thanks for your insightful comment.

      Peace, Mike.
