When meeting someone we never know what purpose they serve in our lives. When we are attracted to this person we try to give them purpose.
It seems these days everyone is training for a sprint. A short race. It’s true some relationships may turn into a marathon but they are usually more difficult because we have conditioned our mind, body, and soul for a short race.
Short races versus marathon require different training. For a short race, one may focus on quickness, explosiveness, and power. For a marathon, the focus may be endurance, stamina, and conditioning.
As it pertains to relationships we never know what type of race we are preparing for.
In my life I found people broken by abuse, abandoned or addictive family behaviors require healing as all these issues encompass one keyword in a relationship: Trust.
I live by two creeds. Always Assume Positive Intent and Seek to Understand.
I myself have been in relationships, situationships, married and divorced.
What I found to be true is the more information you have, the better decision making you do. The more you work on the vision in the mirror, the better you become which in turn makes you more aware and more prepared. Lastly, You create the pace in the race and you decide if it’s a marathon or a sprint by your training.
“The more you work on the vision in the mirror, the better you become which in turn makes you more aware and more prepared.” -SMG
Remember however the person you are interested in may not be as prepared as you. If you see and better yet feel you would like to run with them, pace yourself and get to know if they are even training at all.
