Connecting…….why and how?

Connection, love and belonging are in our DNA. We simply cannot exist without them. And we require them in order to feel complete. People with whole hearts put good out into the world, and that benefits all of us.

Today’s world makes it difficult for us to truly connect with each other. Our busy lives get in the way, as do our fear of judgement and our inability to accept ourselves for who we really are. We know this, but we’re either too busy or too afraid to do anything about it. And so…we continue to travel down an empty road with little gas. We forget who we are, where we’re going and how to get there, leaving us discouraged, emotionally isolated and needy.

This Girl Puts Out is a place for you to find yourself again, connecting with other women by sharing stories of your not-so-perfect life. Sharing our vulnerabilities and experiences helps both the reader and the writer experience the wholeness that comes from having our needs for connection and being loved met. And more whole hearts make the world a better place. So put something out, fill someone up and change the world. One story at time.

When Conflict Brings Clarity

None of us like conflict, or knowing someone is angry at us. It’s our nature to be in harmony and “connected” to others. People may say, “I don’t care if they’re mad at me, that’s their problem”, but the heart truly doesn’t rest until the conflict is resolved. The...
