How Do I Turn My ME Into a WE?

During the Reclaiming Families Weekend for our Trek residential clients and their friends and families, one of the breakout sessions discusses healthy relationships of ME and WE:

Me

When talking about relationships, you have to start with an understanding of a healthy individual.

  • Understand who I am
  • Know my thoughts and feelings
  • Recognize the source of my thoughts and feelings
  • Family of origin
  • Life experience

We

Creating a “We” through cohesion/togetherness

  • When ME and YOU come together, we form a WE
  • Varying degrees of WE, or emotional bonding
  • Balance of separateness and togetherness
  • Independent from + connected to
  • Build consensus vs. do your own thing”
