being on the same wavelength is the stuff that dreams are made of.
thanks shants

With that said, I have begun to realize that there are several key aspects present in having these relationships (friendships and otherwise) come to fruition:

1.
Intentionality (being open and honest about who you are, what you want and where you’re coming from).

2.
Responsibility (owning your shit, no matter how difficult).

3.
Accountability (checking your shit. this includes sites of privilege and power that you may possess as per your social location).

4.
Communication (being able to articulate to your community about numbers 1 through 3 in an open and respectful manner).

5. Trust (understanding that trust is something that is built and earned over time and is indicative of investment in one another. bell hooks says that “trust is the heartbeat of genuine love” and I believe trust is absolutely essential in the formation of a healthy community).
