RELATIONSHIPS

Today we were cleaning out the shed...I have papers stored from I don't know when...I came across this. and I thought it was worth posting....

For more deeper and broader and closer Relationships remember the word:  T R A V E L.


T IS FOR TRUST.  TRUST IS THE GLUE THAT HOLDS PEOPLE TOGETHER (NOT SUPER GLUE)  A RELATIONSHIP WILL GO NOWHERE WITHOUT TRUST.


IS FOR RESPECT.  DO NOT SAVE YOUR LOVING SPEECHES FOR YOUR FRIENDS TIL THEY ARE DEAD.  DO NOT WRITE THEM ON THEIR TOMBSTONES.  SPEAK THEM NOW INSTEAD.  IT'S ABOUT RESPECTING OTHERS AND LETTING THEM KNOW YOU VALUE THEM.


A IS FOR AFFECTION.  SOMETIMES AFFECTION MEANS LOVE.  SOMETIMES IT MEANS A TOUCH.  ALWAYS IT MEANS KINDNESS.


V  IS FOR VULNERABILITY. THOUGH WE MAY FELL AFRAID TO LET ANOTHER TOO CLOSE, NO RELATIONSHIP WILL GO ANYWHERE WITHOUT RISKING VULNERABILITY.  THE WALLS WE BUILD AROUND US TO KEEP OUT SICKNESS, ALSO KEEP OUT THE JOY AND THE LOVE. 


E IS FOR EMOTIONAL INTIMACY.  LEARN TO BE OPEN.  LEARN TO COMMUNICATE FREELY.  WHAT KIND OF RELATIONSHIPS YOU MAKE ARE LARGELY DETERMINED BY HOW OPENLY YOU HAVE LEARNED TO COMMUNICATE.


L  IS FOR LAUGHTER.   LAUGHTER IS THE SHORTEST DISTANCE BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE.  IT IS ALSO THE MOST ENJOYABLE.   


For Relationships that can really go somewhere, just remember, the word:  T R A V E L.
Then enjoy the trip!
