Connection is the glue to a happy and long-lasting relationship. Connection does not merely mean having common goals or outlooks on life. In fact, you may have completely difference goals and outlooks on life and still be able to maintain connection. Connection is much more than commonality. It is the choice to step out of your world of thinking and feeling and to step into theirs. It is about selflessness, and choosing unconditional love and acceptance for the person they are. It is choosing to give of yourself wholeheartedly and not withhold from fear. This does not mean that you have to accept poor choices or bad behavior. It means that you relinquish control over that person while choosing to still pursue connection from your end.
When we withhold love and acceptance out of fear we automatically create distance. That distance may be a couple inches, a few feet, or yards long. You choose. Now, in order to achieve healthy connection it must be practiced by both parties. One person may give and give of them self and the other withhold. There is still going to be distance as long as one side is withholding. A mutual understanding must take place where both sides agree to lay down their own needs and desires to focus on the other. When this takes place both parties are satisfied! Your needs are going to be met as long as you both are giving 100% to each other. It is a very selfless act, but the reward is always great gain.
