Jose, thank you for leading us on this journey. Your comment, “respect and trying goes so much further than getting it perfect” was full of grace for me. Maybe I can stop being so self-conscious in my trying. Also, “we humans all share the basic emotions sad, mad, glad, fear, etc.” helps me center on what is important in a relationship. Once we connect on that level, everything else is learning and growing about each other.
Melanie, thank you for sharing this journey with me. I appreciate your insights, many of which I share. I appreciate how you are able to step back from a situation and see where you are at. This has helped me see when my stuff was getting in the way of a relationship. At times when this has happened to me, I have shared this with the individual, which helped the relationship grow. I hope you have an awesome time in Costa Rica. I look forward to maybe meeting again in another seminar.
