In our interactions with others, we strive to make ourselves presentable in order to be accepted and thought well of. If we are in the dating season of our lives, we take a tremendous amount of time preparing for a positive first impression. Are we spending equally or more time determining who we want to date?
When our priorities focus on the physical, rather than on the spiritual and emotional, we can quickly become disappointed and delusional during this time.
Taking the time to learn how to enjoy our own company, assist us in learning what type of relationship compatibility we desire. Each individual who comes into our lives, helps us to define all relationships in our lives. Different personalities are compatible with different aspects of the various types of relationships we have.
We may be very compatible at work with an individual where synergy occurs on a task, but would be very incompatible outside of work. Our friendships with others can be strong, but would be weak in a work or personal relationship.
Some individuals who come into our life, come for just a moment in time. But their impact in our lives can last a lifetime, in helping us to understand who we are as we refine and define the relationships in our lives.
Let's spend a bit more time, exploring the different aspects of the relationships we have. Let us be mindful of the weak and strong relationships in our lives. When we discover the attributes which make these relationships work or are a struggle, we can better align with the type of personalities and character traits we would enjoy at work, with friends and associates, and in our personal lives.
