Connections to me are the people who know when and how to gently ease themselves into your daily life, their words or faces sitting in the palm of our hands, knowing what to say and when to say it. They don’t need to be encouraged to connect with you, they don’t need to be reminded of your situation and the potential hardship you’re facing – common sense says we’re all facing it, some worse than others. It’s the intangible yet undeniable connection with friends and family who know you inside out, who know the steps you have taken to get where you are now and the reasons for where you are at this very moment in time. It’s an inherent level of understanding.
