Saw this on Facebook today… Consider not hating anything, including small talk. Hating anything means hating ourselves. It means resistance to life. Many of us need to engage with small talk to feel safe, to build a bridge that may, just may, result in me entrusting you with my heart.
Sometimes, we may not get there. Small talk may be the best we can do. And that’s okay. If it never goes any deeper, rest assured, there are good reasons for that. Besides, there is much to glean and appreciate between the lines of the small talk – hard to see and feel when all we’re concerned with is what we like, expect, want and need.
