Relationships

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 8:11 am

We primarily tend to think of relationships as romantic ones, but we have them with everyone we meet. Some of them last and some of them don’t. It seems to me that the one common thread to any successful relationship is work.

Relationships take work.

You may consider yourself blessed to be in a relationship that just seems to run under its own steam and doesn’t need any work. WARNING: Rocks ahead!

If you get in a relationship and “set and forget” it, you can forget about it lasting.

Life, for most, is busier today than it’s been in the past. For example, you may work multiple jobs. NOTE: if you are a working parent, you are working multiple jobs even if you only have one. Your time is not your time as much as it used to be and you may take for granted the wonderful relationship you built and watch it crumble before your eyes.

If you are too busy to work on your relationships, you will have less people to relate to in your life.

I suspect we can all plead guilty to the practice of taking some relationships for granted. We will pay a price for doing so.

For those rebuilding relationships, the work doesn’t need to double; you just have to recognize that work is a constant. Once you get back on track, work is still required. Work is a small price to pay for something that pays so many dividends.

If you are unwilling to put in the work, it may be a sign that you don’t want to be in that relationship any longer. That’s also a valuable thing to know. But before it gets to that point, you have a choice to either put on your work clothes or sit on the couch. One action suggests you’re ready for relationships; the other makes you an unrelatable slouch.

 

All the best,

John
