How it should be...

Just a quote today and perhaps a thought or two.

“Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you.  They are not perfect but are always perfect for you.”  ~Author Unknown

Why do people complicate relationships? The way I see it, if you love someone and they love you, just be with each other. There really should be no more to it than that.

If you’re friends with someone, talk to them. Sometimes that’s all they want or need. Just someone to recognize their exitance or just to have a friend they can count on. If you were close to them but have lost touch, make an effort to speak to them. Especially after they make an effort to speak to you. If you don’t, they will start to think that you don’t want to be their friend any longer.

Family members, don’t just assume that everyone in your family is doing “A-okay”. Talk to them. Often times we see a family member not smiling, but fail to ask any questions. Sending silly email to them might make them giggle a little, but having a real face-to-face talk about issues is so important.

That last thought is key for every relationship you’re in, be it a romantic, a friendly, or a family relationship. If someone asks to talk, and they are important to you, don’t just ask what they want to talk about, help them make a conversation where the issues can come up. The human brain doesn’t usually do well when put on the spot. Most importantly, if they ask, oblige them. If a subject is important enough for one party to ask about, and you ignore that request, the one asking for the conversation might, and probably will think you don’t care enough about them to converse.

Email, instant messages, text messages, video calls, and phone calls are not acceptable replacements for a face-to-face chat. The reason being, you can’t edit out what you really feel in a face-to-face conversation. Everything is out in the open then and it gives respect to the other party that you can put yourself out there.
