I don’t understand why people are afraid. Afraid of being transparent with friends, co-workers… themselves.
You have to. Transparency is therapeutic. Being transparent makes you relatable. Transparency is a starting point for connection.
People want to connect with those they can relate to. And that’s when the real magic happens.
It may not work for every situation — maybe. But in most cases, it’s the only thing we need to break the barrier and reach like-minded people.
And you know what the best part is? Transparency, when done repeatedly, can also inspire others to be transparent and honest with themselves.
That’s the sort of insight and inner-reflection that can change the world. A domino effect.
