10. On Relationships
My relationships with friends and family are a great treasure to me, and they give my life meaning and depth. Good relationships are not automatic. They require hard work and must be nurtured with time, effort, energy, and good deeds. I must be proactive to invite friends and family to experience life with me on a regular basis. Most people don’t. I must take initiative to invest my energy in the relationship and add value and encouragement to their lives.Most people don’t. I can’t make someone be a friend. If it becomes obvious that someone no longer wants a mutual friendship, I must let them go and move on to someone else who might. I am responsible for half of every relationship in my life. I must make sure my half is the better half! Since my childhood I have been blessed with friends at different seasons who have added depth, joy, and meaning to my life. I’m grateful![line]
