I've been thinking a lot about the various diversity, connection, team building activities we have done at camp. I also feel in a bit of a blog rut - and only really talk about therapy. So, I figure, answering some of these will be something else.
These questions came from an activity we did during group's last night. These questions were asked, in no particular order, and each member could answer. "Pass" was always an option, but generally, folks got into it.
What is more difficult for you, looking into someones eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someones eyes when they are telling you how they feel?
I think that's its much more difficult looking into someones eyes when you are telling them how you feel, whether its good or bad. If you are telling them something good, like what a difference they have made to you, its almost awkward to be looking in their eyes. If you are telling them something not-so-good, then its just horrible to see the look or hurt or sadness in their eyes.
It's not so bad looking into their eyes when they are telling you something. That's almost easy. If good, you feel you have a soul connection. If negative, their eyes might be a little softer than their words and take some of the sting out it.
