The 3 C for a deeper connection

3 simple tips to improve any relationship and deepen any connection.

In this fast-paced era, people don’t want to waste time and effort to develop a relationship yet almost everyone suffers from loneliness at one point in their life. We’re social beings and we need relationships.

First and foremost, for any relationship to work or develop further, sincerity is a requirement. Not all connection needs to be deep but they need to be genuine.

Here are the 3 Cs to get past the superficial level in any social connection.

1. Compassion

When we can hold space for the other to be themselves, we’re giving compassion and we’re developing our own compassionate capability. Let people be who they are. Your compassion is the foundation for your relationship to grow.

2. Communication

Nobody is a mind reader, not even a psychic. To grow a healthy relationship, you need to have clear communication. This is the bridge that humans connect their ideas, their minds, and their hearts. Speak your truth, respectfully, do your best to avoid misunderstanding.

3. Cheer each other on

Don’t be a troll. Everyone can be a decent human being by merely being respectful towards others. You don’t have to agree with whatever others say or do but you can give them respect. If people do something good, cheer them on. If they’re bettering their lives, cheer them on, support them if you can.

With these 3 Cs, you can develop genuine and supportive relationships that you can either grow deeper or you can maintain as strong social relationships. Before you know it, you’re less lonely and you might make a few more friends.
