According to Relational-Cultural Theory, we get healthier and do everything better when we have mutual relationships. This means friendships and work-connections with people who celebrate who we really are, without the overlay of dominance or power-grabbing, without subtle place-setting, without the assumption we all think or feel the same.
Mutual means having shared power.
I build you up and you build me up
and we're smarter, healthier, richer,
and more joyous because we know each other.
