one thing to feel less alone?

In the last several days, I’ve heard or read about how alone people feel in their lives and in their work, particularly people in leadership. I’m no stranger to this, having been in various organizational leadership positions over the years. So over the last few days, a question has been percolating on the back burner of my heart:

what one thing could you share that would help you to feel a little less alone?

A particularly irksome challenge at work? A parenting struggle? A problem with a friend? Concerns about money, about health, about the world?

Who would you share this with? What do you need to ask of them so they receive you as you need to be received?

And perhaps most importantly, what would it take for you to commit to do this – identify one thing that you’re not sharing, that if shared, would help you feel less alone, figure out who you need to share it with, and actually sit down and have the conversation? Put differently, what would it take for you to step into interdependence?
