I dont understand your world and you dont understand my world. And until we leave the safety of our own worlds, we will keep on judging & despising each other.
We learn. In all relationshops, at some point in our lives we learn. We learn that company doesn’t mean security. We learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises. We learn that futures have a way of falling in mid-flight. After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. So you plant your garden and decorate your soul instead of waiting for someone else to bring you flowers.
And then sometimes, we learn to love. Appropriately. We learn that love needs to be sincere and intelligent. Not sentimental gush. We learn that perhaps their is a way for relationships to outlast differences.
But what you learn in the one relationship will determine the success of the next ones.
May you be inspired [to learn to love appropriately]
In 20 years from now I’ll most probably be married. Be a superb father. Travelled a bit. Bought a house. Done the 4 Deserts Challenge. And have my helicopter license.
In 20 years from now, I might have failed in all of them and be very disappointed.
But not giving any of these a shot will leave me more disappointed.
So I will give it a shot.
I will start with building relationships. Just relationships. I know that in 20 years from now the thing that I will be most disappointed by is if I realize that I didn’t value relationships and cherished them.
May you be inspired [to value relationships]
