Relationships of Life
Every time we interact with a person, place, or thing we are experiencing a relationship. We have relationships with people, money, food, holidays, flowers, feelings, emotions, computers, pets, friends, relatives, spouses, children, employers, religion, significant others, society, politics, neighbors, online communities such as MySpace, Facebook, Online Dating Sites and forums, medical professionals, telemarketers, etc., etc. … and depending on what you believe, perhaps even with Angels, Demons and God. Indeed, relationships are pieces of the jigsaw puzzle we refer to as our life.
It is a common misconception that a relationship always is a reference to an interaction between two people when actually a relationship is between two variables, perhaps two people, or a person and a place or a thing or a concept, or maybe even two variables neither of which are people. For the purpose of dealing with the Relationships of Life on this site I will be making the assumption that there is at least one person involved.
As I approach writing articles for this web site I invite you to join me on this journey in looking through a looking glass at the relationships of life that we encounter each and every day. Every day we have the opportunity to learn to handle the relationships we deal with in our lives in a positive manner. It’s not always easy to be positive and optimistic when sometimes something or someone that you encounter causes you to be annoyed; but even then, sometimes if you are open-minded there is some benefit that can be gained even from an annoying relationship.
According to dictionary.com a relationship is “an emotional or other connection between people; or the condition or fact of being related; or a connection or association”. According to Marriam Webster’s online dictionary the definition for relationships is “the state of being related or interrelated” such as variables relate to each other. What does this mean? An example might be that one can study the relationship between variables and the variables might be people, places or things. Life at its best should be full of fulfilling relationships with people, places and things. Unfortunately, there are times when life is not always at its best and our relationships are draining and difficult. Given that fact there are endless relationships that we can explore and as we move forward in our journey it would seem that I should have no shortage of topics to explore with you on this site. Hopefully you will find my articles thought provoking, interesting, useful and helpful and your relationships fulfilling and colorful as I like to say – Season after Season - We must search for Reason after Reason – To look everywhere - For the colors of Life!!! Let’s start with our relationships!!!
