Relationships are like plants. Some relationships grow into trees becoming tall and strong. Other relationships are like bamboo, easily cut and grown. Some last only a season and others are annuals as they may or may not return.

We need to understand what relationships we have. Once we understand that, we can see the value they are. When one changes enough, we are left with a choice. Do we change it? address it? or let it go?

It is not easy and as 2018 closes, I’m at that place. What do I do? What relationships are savable? changing? too far gone? growing? It is a lot to think about. Relationships are living things.
