“We have to recognize that there cannot be relationships unless there is commitment, unless there is loyalty, unless there is love, patience, persistence.”
― Cornel West

Relationships are everything, they always have been and always will be. The fix to all violence in the world is a good human relationship with the adversary. This takes work, hard work, and frankly most people just aren’t willing to put the time in. Mot people hide behind the feeling of “I don’t care” but that is the problem. Nobody cares! We only care about what is directly involved in our lives, or what we think is directly involved. Relationships take commitment. You need to commit to a definite mindset

Relationships take commitment. You need to commit to a definite positive mindset , once this accomplished you can begin to build the relationships that make you thrive as a person. In turn, you will help others build thriving relationships with people in their world. We must, however, be loyal to one another if we are going to get past the hurdles that will no doubt come with any relationship we begin. The foundation of any successful relationship is built on love, patience, and persistence.  You need the love as the real foundation, the patience when things get rough and the persistence to get past the stubbornness of the rough situation.

Bottomline, be true to yourself and treat everyone as you would love to be treated. Nobody wants to deliberately be treated like a bad person, so return that favor to all that you come into contact with. Get better every day!

    1. Thank you for taking the time. You’re right, it is hard work. I have always built great relationships with people but keeping them great is a challenge. Especially when we get pulled in so many different directions. Always forward.
