Relationship is like a traffic sign. There are three main colors: red, yellow and green. Red is a sign for you to stop. Yellow- to be ready to go. And, green for ready get set go. What am I talking about?
Whoever invented traffic signs, kudos to him or her. People needs traffic signs in order to avoid road rage on the road and bumper to bumper traffic. When there’s traffic signs: the road to driving is smooth and flowing.
Like traffic signs, there are also signs to look at in the relationship. These are clues and hints in order to maintain a good relationship. So how do you define relationship?
While others would like to define relationship as to bond, to build friendship, getting to know the person, some people would define it as something you need to work hard for. And that is true in any relationship; you need to work hard for it in order for the relationship to survive. Either romantic relationship, friendship or any type of relationship, giving it time, effort and more hard work.
Below are some sayings and quotes that other people look at it on their own perspective:
“See, each man and each woman actually does have an owner’s manual. Nothing’s written down anywhere, but the directions for operation of an individual in a relationship are detailed and specific nonetheless. So when you start out with someone, you’re essentially driving a strange car for the first time and none of the controls are labeled. So the wipers can come on at strange times, sometimes you stall. On top of that we’ve all met people with bad steering, no brakes, needs a muffler, headlights a little dim, too much in the trunk, not enough under the hood, prone to backfiring, won’t turn over, and just plain out of gas. Which is why when people get ready to get married they so often seem to choose basic transportation. It’s simple, it’s reliable, and it gets you there. That’s important on a long trip”
“We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, “This is the problem I want to have.”
I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way.
Let our scars fall in love.”
