WHAT IT TAKES TO BE IN A RELATIONSHIP
Relationship are of different kinds and this includes that of a mother, father to children, boys and girls, husband and wife, friends to friends, relationship in the church with other members, the clergy and relationship at work with colleagues. Every relationship has its own challenges and in reality, challenge are like someone trying to calculate mathematics and having a test on English, but the result of the calculation and test is what really counts. whatever the case or situation we find ourselves, we should understand that life is full of challenges and there are various kinds of challenges e.g challenges in marriage, parenting, life challenges, social issues or challenges. We need to understand that we humans cannot occupy a space like a home or office without transgressing and having problems with others sometimes, that is why families, work places, churches, schools and neighborhoods. The relationship between a mother and a child could be very challenging especially when the kids are growing up and when they become teenagers.
In reality relationships are tough, hard sometimes due to the situations and challenges that comes with it. It is unfortunate that we all have gone through life situations one way or another and sometimes we might hurt or be hurt due to this circumstances, we always want better relationship, despite that have received many relational injuries, either at work or at home, with friends and acquaintances. We have all one way or the other insulted or injured our parents , siblings, spouse , children and a lot of other people by causing them pain which we kind of regret when we look back. The good thing is that with every challenge comes forgiveness. We have to forgive and forget the past and that is the only way we can overcome some life challenges . The result for challenges and forgiveness is simply a decision to let go of our regrets and views, so getting rid of your partner does not get rid of the problem you have , because half of the “problem” is yours . You can walk out on your relationship, but you can’t run away from yourself, no matter how hard you try! Rather than blaming each other, couples can learn how to work as a team and coach each other through the troubled and struggling times.
In order to avoid any kind of regrets or challenges in a relationship we must :
- Learn to forgive others
