#MEExposed: What Do You Want From A Relationship?
I had never thought anyone was a mold from some special cookie cutter of life, but many of us were conditioned to think that we would find this perfect person by x time, be married by x time, have kids by x time and the rest of x times would naturally follow.
Maturity and life experience has really been teaching me that everything we decide comes down to what we want, irrespective of the obstacles, but also not everything we want…we get. Some people know very early in life what they want and they go for it aggressively. Others of us figure it out later, or sadly never at all.
Today I propose to you a question - Do you know what you want from a relationship? Not just intimate ones, but friendships, acquaintances…Have you ever really stopped to assess whether they are healthy or even necessary relationships that nourish your soul, or function to empower your growth in any way.
Is your vision a big house with a picket fence and an army of kids running around its big lawn? Then why not have it? Persons like these tend to go for stable careers that can afford them such luxuries, as working in an environment that makes them unhappy is a sacrifice they are willing to make to have that soccer team of kids. Someone like myself on the other hand is still seeing Grammy awards, world tours and building fan base as a lucrative desire. I find it quite revealing because as much as I want the house with the picket fence, I don’t think I currently want it more than what I’m striving to achieve. Persons like myself choose passion over stability. Make less than we are worth now, hoping to make tonnes more for what we love later, and that passion becomes the driving force in nearly all the decisions that we make. None of this is to say that passion and stability can’t coexist, so that is also a viable option, but it has to be right.
Today all I’m asking you to do is to think about your successful and your failed relationships, and truly assess what you had wanted then, and what you really want now. It will help you on your path to rise from the ashes like the Phoenix and find exactly what you are looking for. Once you choose with your heart then the rest will follow accordingly.
I am still searching for what I want. I don’t think that search ever ends in this life, but so far I know:
From my friendships I want loyalty, honesty and trust.
From my acquaintances I want pleasant interactions and encouragement to enjoy life.
From my intimate relationships I want attraction, spiritual connection, love, loyalty, honesty, trust and true compatibility.
For my career I want focus, fearlessness, originality, an understanding of my audience and creative and financial success.
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
