Having studied human psychology, I was always interested in the intricacies of human relationships. The power of an honest conversation is truly underrated. For sure, the times have changed.! Sometimes we learn so much if we pay attention and indulge in meaningful conversations.
I have somehow experienced more support from strangers than friends. Maybe all we need to do is talk. Some experiences even if they’re just 30 minutes long have the power of changing your thoughts and hence your life. After all they say you’re one decision away from living your dream life. Maybe it’s all about experiences that alter the course of our decision making process. Let’s breathe, observe and of course talk!
Conversations can have the power of making life altering decisions!
