Every relationship, whether it be good or bad, matters. Why? It is because we grow as individuals and we learn from each and every relationship.
Sometimes we learn what not to do. This happens when we are in a poor relationship, one that is not mutual and where the other person shows us exactly how we ought not to be. It gives example of behaviours we need to avoid if one wants to be happy.
More often than not though, our relationships help us grow as a person, bringing us closer to love and making us think of others before ourselves. These are the kind of positive relationships we should all strive to be in.
Whether it be family, friend, boss or peer, the way we hold ourselves accountable, and how we act, will talk to how the relationship progresses. Only we can decide the part which we play in the relationship.
Some relationships are meant to last a lifetime, others are not. For some we would walk through fire, for others we would not. Which path we take talks to the kind of relationship it is.
You have an important part to play in every interaction with another being. Why? Well, because every relationship matters.
One thought on “Every Relationship Matters”
Very true, particularly in young life. Not sure that apart from early school life relationships are necessary that crucial, although much is made of best friends at school etc… It’s on entering the workplace that relationship dynamics start to play in. We do acquire understanding from work colleagues and in personal relationships. There’s that rear view experience where you probably would have paid more attention to the other person and their needs with the knowledge that you have now acquired.
