The Third Level

“There are four different levels of communication,

each with its own context and ends…


“The third level is the level of trust, intimacy,

vulnerability, and transparency.  

Most of us are afraid to be wrong

and absolutely terrified to be rejected

and communicating at the emotional level opens us

up to be rejected, hurt, and scarred…"


“It’s a daily tragedy that so many people yearn

for emotional connection and communication

yet so adamantly push it away.  We spend our days

in conversations about nothing and inert ideas,

yet rarely are we asked about our dreams,

wants, needs, and joys.  

The emotional level is the foundation upon which

relationships, families, teams, and societies are built…”
