What makes something better is connection

It’s so easy to push hurting people away because we don’t know how to respond to the sadness. This short animation does a great job of showing how being with someone in their sadness can be more effective than trying to buck someone up.

If you’re a parent, I invite you to watch this and imagine the sad fox is your child. How can you be more like the bear and less like the goat? We parents, we’re awfully good at “at least”-ing.

Thank you to commenter Louise Allana for the heads up!
