How has the meaning of connection changed for you?

“Connection has taken on a deeper meaning. It’s so valuable to connect with those we can’t see on a regular basis. I do miss hugging and look forward to those hugs. They’ll be sweeter when it’s safe again.”
– Robin R.

“The more I started to connect, discover, and accept my inner self, I discovered I wanted more company. Then I forgave any misalignments with my family and friends. At some point I realized true connection meant connection to the entire world, just as it was.”
– Tiffany P.

“1. Being present when connecting with family and friends. Taking a genuine interest in what makes others happy and showing that you care about what matters most to them.”
– Lisa C.

“Normally, connection for me is ‘being there,’ telephonically, virtually and personally. It hasn’t changed; just how much I use them has shifted.”
– June N.

“Connection is the realization of oneness.”
– Mike M.
