Relationships are everything. They’re so valuable and important. Precious. And at the same time, even the most cherished, heartfelt, well-intended relationships can be challenging. Still, the relationships with people who mean a lot to you are the ones worth sustaining.
Somehow, life gets complex. Perhaps, it was in our elementary school days when we practiced the best relationship-building skills in our lives. We just didn’t know it at the time.
Think about it.
From a very sincere, healthy, and secure place, we communicated like:
“Do you like me? Do you want to be my friend? Check Yes or No.”
I can only wonder if our innocent simplicity could last a lifetime, how much better our relationships and lives could be as we all navigate adolescence, adulthood, and beyond.
Sometimes, I wish the rest of the journey was simple.
Sometimes, I wish we could still check Yes or No.
