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…”
