Padova - 2 Jun 2024 to 2 Jun 2024
Olivia Palmer

 When we share heart to heart, we share innermost thoughts and feelings.

Heart-to-heart moments build a very solid foundation of a friendship or relationship that lasts for a very long time.

It’s a sign of a true friendship or a good family relationship when you can let your guard down to discuss something that has happened to you, good or bad, and that person won’t judge or shut you down without hearing everything you need to say.

Living heart-to-heart in relationships with others is the hardest thing to have in relationships, but it’s also the most important thing to have.
