It's What Everybody Talks About
A fundamental human topic
Sometimes it can be challenging to find speakers who deliver an interesting and engaging discussion on a topic that everyone in your group will find worthwhile. Not everything is of interest to everybody. But there's one topic that people already talk about all the time — other people. We are constantly talking to other people about other people. Why? Because, as human beings, relationships for us are everything, from primary (romantic) relationships to family, friends, co-workers, acquaintances and even, believe it or not, an elevator filled with strangers. We literally depend on our relationships with others for our very lives. In addition, relationships can help us maintain equilibrium and move in a direction of peace and happiness.
And yet most of us hardly know anything about the underlying fundamentals of relationships, or why relationships can sometimes seem to go so horribly wrong. Paradoxically, because we've been in relationships all our lives, we think we're experts!
