REGAINING HEALTHY CONNECTION

Regaining and optimizing personal skill and interpersonal interaction,

Feeling the warmth and pleasure of connecting with others,

with openness and depth,

while managing healthy boundaries.  

These are skills that can be identified as present or needed,

Then practiced, and confidence rebuilt with time.
