When the rate of communication is imbalanced, both parties need to look within and determine what is driving their action or inaction. This is healthy. This is love. This is mindful intent within a relationship.
Words, actions and vulnerability are inextricably connected. We can make ourselves vulnerable by our actions and words, and yet, our inaction and lack of words can do the same. Ultimately we must acknowledge the constant cost-benefit analysis at play. Choosing vulnerability will always pay in the long-run. The new Hulu movie, ‘Happiest Holidays’ is an excellent example of these ideas.
