The joy of cracking wide open

We live in a Snapchat, coffee catch-up culture. Often we don’t get down and deep into the conversations that matter. Yet, when you do there’s a joy in cracking wide open and revealing who we really are. 

Not only is it so bonding when it comes to relationships and friendships, conversations can also become the joiner of the dots in our thoughts. They allow us to put the random meanderings of the brain into some sense and order. In doing so we discover the bigger picture of ourselves. When you find a friend you can share a deep conversation with you ground yourself. I think this can be such a strong anchor when you get pushed sideways by life. 

In our busy lives, try hard to find chatting time with friends that can last a few hours. Even over a bottle of wine. That ‘cracking wide open’ only takes place with time. It’s the difference between having surface level friendships and those that last a life time. Bonded in truth and love.
