EAL 29: The Impact of Teasing


In this time of accelerated change and shake up, it is so important that we set ourselves up well. Making choices that build trust in a support system in our lives is an invaluable thing to consider.

Today I want to talk about a simple adjustment that many people need to consider—the impact of teasing. All too often in this world of competition, sound bites and technological distractions, we are losing the ability to communicate in heartfelt ways with one another. Sometimes we end up replacing those real investments of ourselves in one another with quips and teasing… without really considering the impact we might be having on our ability to trust and feel safe.

Let’s talk about that, so that you can make more conscious choices about what you want to create and experience in your life.
