Did you have a pen pal as a kid? I loved sitting down, writing and sharing something from my heart, funny or serious. I was able to share my authentic self to someone else in a meaningful way. I remembered how excited I was when my letter arrived in the mail. It was a wonderful experience to hold a letter that someone else took the time and thought to write just for me.
My first pen pal was assigned to me in the 5th grade. She was another 5th grader from Alabama. In the 6th grade, I was assigned my second pen pal from Germany. Both pen pals added so much to my learning because of their cultures as they were different from mines growing up in Illinois.
Writing a letter provides time for us to be ourselves, honest, dream, listen and understanding. It can be hard to embrace ourselves, especially if we’ve been taught that we need to change based on so-called norms in our society and/or culture. Meaningful connections with others have been lost due to our overuse of social media and texting. I love technology and its benefits, but nothing will ever replace the human connection needed within ourselves or from others.
Ways to embrace yourself and connect with others now:
If you want to feel more connected to others, then you have to first connect to yourself. Well, it is important for you to notice what you are feeling at a specific time. Besides accepting yourself, you must value yourself in order to embrace who you are. By engaging in delectable solo commotions, you can accept your introspection and emotions. I think it will be helpful, if you practice self-compassion, as it is a huge part of connecting to your true self. That's all!

About two years ago I learnt about a successful HEPATITIS B Virus treatment from Herbal Health Point (w w w. herbalhealthpoint . c om). I was on the treatment for over 7 months and tested negative after I completed the treatment. Its almost unbelievable how the treatment alleviated the virus. I completed the treatment two years ago and still negative!
