One Way Street

No One Way Relationships

← Revise Redefine Release →

A relationship, friendship or otherwise, is not a one way street. Any relationship that is uni-directional is bound to fail. To me, there are only three options to rectify these circumstances. You can fix it, you can call yourselves acquaintances, or you can let it go completely.

A true relationship cannot be forced. Both parties must relate to one another. One cannot make another relate to oneself. If the other party does not want to communicate and have a two-way relationship, you must decide if you will redefine the relationship, or leave it and walk away.

If you do not do this, you will be left drained and frustrated. Possibly even angry towards the other party who may indeed have good reasons for closing their end of the street. That will only exacerbate the situation. By redefining or releasing, I believe there may actually be a chance of reopening the other lane at a later time.
