One of my favorite things to do is to touch and be touched… It was more than 40 years ago in High School when I walked passed my Chemistry teacher and placed my hand on his shoulder and said “excuse me” as I tried to pass him in a tight place… I will never forget what he said to me. He commented on how I was a “toucher” and that touch was very important to me.
I have been around people who don’t like to be touched and for me I can’t even imagine going through life without touches… I certainly understand peoples space and respecting it… but for me to be touched and to touch is such a connection to another person (or animal). When I saw this picture of a beautiful golden Retriever touching this babies head I just smiled… Like humans there are animals who need touch and Golden Retrievers are one of them!
Next time you are around people, notice if you are you a toucher or not?
I suppose there is nothing wrong with not being a toucher, but if you’re not, give it a try. A simple hug, a touch to someone’s shoulder or even grasping a hand with both your hands connects you to someone like nothing else!
Connecting to Some-Body is a beautiful experience!
