Jake had the honor of having Jesse Lott from Zephyr Wellness, who is a marriage and family therapist and also an alcohol and drug counselor, as a guest on the show, to discuss deeper on the topic of Connection and Intimacy.

Connections with other people form our “web” of relationships made with other people. These can be made face to face, online, over the phone, any means of communication, you name it. People’s networks opens up countless new opportunities they wouldn’t have had otherwise, which can range from just having some food at lunch with someone to the immense offer to travel overseas.

Intimacy is about knowing someone deeply and being able to be completely free in that person’s presence. It is an emotional state that is often reserved for just one person. Life and relationships go better as we make room for our human vulnerability, not shut it down. When our self-protective instincts try to safeguard us from emotional pain, we attack, accuse, or withdraw.

Connections and Intimacy in your relationships are very rewarding. Remember, the more effort you put into your connection, the greater the satisfaction and benefits you will receive.
