We are human and are always evolving, growing and learning. Many times, we don’t communicate what we are feeling. We often neglect those close to us and lack the skills of how to effectively communicate. Sometimes, our biases feed our agenda and we take others for granted, not recognizing what they do for us or misdirect our mindset due to misunderstanding.

Thankfully, the human experience is fluid and allows us to learn from past mistakes to make improvements, which only stand to benefit us, for we are the recipient of our own growth. Matana shares lessons learned in her family relationships, with her husband and children, taking us on her journey from learning to correctly identify caring from those around her to appreciating those closest to us, who often get the least honorable mention.

Learning to listen in order to understand is a critical tool in self development and harnessing the power of silence when having a stressful conversation, can deescalate and the defuse the tension, allowing for understanding, healing, connection and growth.
