Two Types of Relationships

An assumed relationship (one based on stereotypes or even guesses) is impossible to compare with an achieved, or actual relationship because the one isn’t much of a relationship. At least, not in the sense of more or less intimate connection. Many (or most) of us don’t, in a given “relationship”, have the capacity to discern the difference. That is certainly me, but I’m studying to figure the whole thing out.

As a game or exercise, try to figure out where your “relationship” with some other individuals (people, god, family members, coworkers, fellow church members, etc.) falls on the assumed/actual spectrum. It’s enlightening.

More tomorrow…
