The language of relation is resonance.
Relating is data-streaming, which means, I feel you and I feel you feeling me. That’s the music of relating. We update our relationship, moment to moment, through data-streaming, like a camera that takes many photos and becomes a movie.
But if we get triggered and don’t feel our partner anymore, then our data gets old. We’re no longer looking at the resonant, updated version of our partner. Trauma interrupts the data stream.
