Relationships

November 16th 2019

Relationships are both fragile and enduring, they can create the greatest joy in our lives, or they can create the deepest depths of despair. Why are we then so cavalier much of the time when it comes to the relationships that mean the most to us?

Relationship are intertwined with our identities and our identities are intertwined to our emotions. Our emotions are generally very fragile and can result in all manner of verbal or behavioral response to those that may offend or that we perceive to have offended.

Relationships and the emotional behaviors stemming from those relationships create a variety of interactions that reverberate back and forth between those closest to us and many times those that are quite distant from us. The perceptions that we generate from everyday interactions with others can stem from recent events or events from our very distant pasts.

This may lead many to wonder how we manage our relationships at all and, if we do, how do we make our relationships both lasting and loving. Learning how to create deep, loving relationships is a vital step to living a fulfilled and happy life. Why? Because we are social creatures that need love and attachment in our lives.

The next several blogs from me will give steppingstones to building the types of relationships that are meaningful, loving and enduring.m a paragraph.
