One of the best ways to connect with others is through self-disclosure—really opening up to them.
Think of the people with whom you would like to create a connection.
For each one, consider something about yourself that you could disclose, something you’d like that person to know but haven’t been bold enough to share.
Continue by reflecting on how this disclosure might change your relationship with him or her.
Tip: Journal, Then Speak
Being thoughtful before self-disclosure makes a huge difference.
Take a few moments to prayerfully pause, reflect, and consider others before you speak. This will help you have long and healthy relationships.
