There are a lot of ways to connect with yourself.
You can connect using meditation.
You can connect using music.
You can connect using religion.
You can connect using sports.
Anything with a lot of dedication and hard work helps us connect with ourselves.
But one of the best ways to connect with ourselves is by connecting with others; specifically with the people who need us the mosts, knowing them, knowing their pain, helping in their distress, and being with them in thick and thin.
