From Frustration to Fulfilment: Embracing Your Need for True Connection

Ever feel like you're the one always seeking connection in your relationship? It can be frustrating when it seems like your partner isn't as interested in spending time together as you are. But have you ever wondered what's behind your need for closeness and connection? In this blog post, we'll dive into what connection truly means for us humans, why it's essential, and how understanding your need for connection can transform your relationship with yourself and others, by supporting you to access an abundance mindset around how to meet this truly essential need in your life.


Why Connection Matters

Connection is a fundamental human need, and it goes beyond mere companionship. As social beings, we're hardwired to seek connection, to belong to a community, and to know that we matter to others. It's not just about physical proximity; it's about feeling safe, valued, and understood. To put it simply, connection is at the core of what it means to be human.

Think about it this way: our ancestors survived and thrived in tribes or communities. Being part of a group meant safety, shared resources, and support. In today's world, we may not be battling predators, but the need for connection remains deeply ingrained in our psyche. It's the invisible thread that ties us to our families, friends, and loved ones.

Why Connection Matters to You

Now, let's get personal. What does connection mean to you? Take a moment to reflect. When you experience connection, what does it feel like? Perhaps you recall a special moment, a deep conversation, or a shared experience with someone. Connection is the bridge between two hearts, the space where trust, vulnerability, and authentic communication can flourish.

Understanding why connection is vital for you can empower you to ask for it more clearly in your relationships. When you know what it means to you and why it's important, you can express your needs with clarity. This newfound awareness allows you to explore different ways of meeting your need for connection, making you less reliant on a single source or method, which can inevitably lead you to feeling frustrated, annoyed and alone.

So, consider your need for connection. Why does it matter to you? How do you experience it in your life, your relationship, and beyond? The answers to these questions will lead you to a deeper understanding of your own longing for connection.

Exploring Different Pathways to Connection

One common pitfall is becoming overly attached to a specific way of meeting your need for connection. For example, insisting that your partner must stick to a prearranged plan, like a movie night, can lead to scarcity thinking. You fear that if the plan doesn't happen as intended, you'll suddenly feel alone and unimportant to them.

But when you're connected to the essence of your need for connection, you realize there are countless ways to fulfil it. Connection can be found within yourself, with different people, or even in nature. By recognizing the multitude of ways your needs can be met, you unlock a sense of abundance within yourself.

The Power of Awareness

By exploring what connection means to you and why it's important, you gain clarity on what you're asking for in your relationships. You become better equipped to express your desires, and you're less likely to fall into the trap of demand energy - the insistence that your need for connection can only be met through a specific plan or activity.

So, the next time you're seeking connection, remember that it's about more than just spending time with someone. It's about understanding why it matters to you and recognizing the many avenues available to meet that need, see if you can get creative about how to meet this need with your partner, yourself or other people in your life. The more connected you become with the essence of your need, the richer and more fulfilling your relationships can be.


Connection is the heartbeat of human existence. It's the invisible force that binds us to our loved ones and communities.

By understanding why connection is important to you and recognizing the multitude of ways to fulfil that need, you can transform your relationships. Say goodbye to scarcity and hello to abundance in the world of connection. Explore the different ways you can experience and share connection, and watch your relationships thrive.
