This week, take one small step outside of your social comfort zone in the direction of someone to whom you feel drawn but have been resisting because of some kind of fear or worry. In doing so, see this action as primarily a kindness to yourself, not to the other person (although it very well could be, of course).
In being kind to yourself in this way, notice if the action ripples out to touch anyone else.
Reflect on when you or someone you know steps beyond a perceived risk to do something thoughtful or kind. Reflecting on it helps normalize it and expands your awareness.
