I am working through a book on neuroscience and relationships. Read about this concept of how we tend to think of our relationships in terms of how well we know people. That’s pretty much how I think about my relationships. I can tell you who I know well, and those that I do not know well.
This book though had me consider my relationships where I thought about how much I was known by others. It took me awhile, but I was able to think of people that might know me fairly well. I like the idea though. It will be interesting to interact with people from this perspective.
Then I had to consider – do I let other people know me. It’s one thing to be known by others, but it’s quite a different thing to let others know me. That is a much harder thing for me to consider.
One of the ways that you can know – who you are – is to let others know. Knowing is natural. Being known is not as natural. We need to learn how to do that. How do you do that? Are you able to be known?
