The Time My Mind Exited, Stage Left

Thoughts on Relationships…

Have you ever been in a race? More than one, or perhaps been on your school track team? Did you win every race?

If you didn’t, were you emotionally devastated to the point of quitting after each loss?

If yes, you aren’t ready for a relationship.

If no, why not?

Did you blame the winner for your loss? Insult them? Try to hurt them?

If yes, you aren’t ready for a relationship.

If no, why not?

Here’s the thing, relationships are like a three-legged race. That type of race where a team of two races side-by-side with their adjacent legs tied together, adjacent arms over eachothers’ shoulders for support, crossing the Finish line simultaneously. The goal being to cross that line ahead of the other teams.

In a relationship, that three-legged team is racing against the statistic that half of those entering– will never finish the race unless they are emotionally ready to run the race and cross the finish line together… without inflicting blame, insult, or injury upon the person to whom they are tied.

To make things even more complicated, the team doesn’t know where the finish line is. They run through what seem like endless obstacles with some people cheering them on and others trying to distract one partner or the other. When, and if, they finally cross the finish line together, there is no trophy, the only prize are the memories they created running the race together.
