What you will learn:
Developing Social Courage requires practice. Speaking up, being clear about one's boundaries, addressing issues with others and calling out cruelty and disrespect can be awkward. Challenging norms and expectations in one's work place, social circle, or family can create tension; enduring awkwardness and setbacks is part of stretching one's Social Courage range.
Authentic connection can be challenging with the bulk of daily interactions occurring on social media, through texts, on email, in group chats and through dating apps. Despite the ease and efficiency of "connecting," it is common to hear people report feeling disconnected, anxious and inadequate in comparison to others. The courageous act of unplugging can leave a person feeling left behind and lonely at first, but those who take this step usually report improved mental and emotional wellbeing.
