So Close, yet so Far – Relationships

Written as a Facebook Note, August 23, 2011. 

So close, yet so farRelationships are challenging because they require maintenance, transparency, honesty, humbleness, constructive criticism, nurturing, spontaneity, creativeness, stimulating conversations, acceptance, peace, the presence of God, sacrifices, respect, understanding, appreciation, and the list goes on.  However, there are times when two people, who were once inseparable may grow a part and begin to steer in opposite directions. This division could be attributed to individual challenges, failure to find middle ground, over confidence, the date to marry metaphor, lack of creativity and the list continues.  Thus, we must be mindful that nothing comes easy, and anything that is worth keeping will require personal sacrifices.  Just make sure that you do not sacrifice self in the process because it takes the whole self to produce healthy-productive results.
