We are build for connection with other people. Our heart requires fellowship, and our mind demands negotiation. Our mouth longs for an ear that will listen and understand. The Creator established the need for us to reach out for relationships. Retationships will satisfy TWO NEEDS in our busy lives.
1. The need to RECEIVE.
2. The need to RELEASE.
We have an inborn craving to make a personal contact with another human being. That is why the hurt and wounded person who has been divorced or rejected and feel like a victim will still reach out one more time to find love again. Many times at the cost of emotional upheaval.
All relationships are at best A RISK. They demand time, energy, attention and discipline. Like small plants, they require patience, before strength. Even though relationships can be very painful, we have a desire to pursue them. Remember this, “YOU WILL NEVER POSSESS WHAT YOU ARE UNWILLING TO PURSUE.”
