Have you ever:
Caught yourself holding your breath as you share a shameful or guilty moment you had and gave a sigh of relief when your friend responds with kindness and grace?
Caught yourself midway through the conversation feeling surprised at how much intimate details you are sharing and how comfortable you are in the conversation?

Today, take the courage to ask for it.
You deserve it.
Everyone deserves it.
