Often in conversations, it takes someone to be vulnerable to go below the surface level of small talk. Small talk is necessary at certain times and with certain people, but we long to be able to open up to others. We want to share our fears, our loves, our stories.
We can spend time on the surface, talking about trivial things, but we have to choose to dive deeper in our conversations. If one person decides to be vulnerable, the atmosphere of a conversation changes completely. It opens up new possibilities and opportunities for everyone to learn and share.
But someone has to choose to do it. Will that person be you in your conversations?
