R is for Relationships

I have many relationships in my life. Friendships, familial relationships, coworker relationships.  But I have only ever been in two romantic relationships.  Those two were 14 years apart.

I love all my different types of relationships.  My family are some of the most fun people to hang around with and there is always plenty of laughter when we do.  Hanging out with them reminds me from where I come and that I have a solid foundation to fall back on if ever I need to.  I am grateful for them and so happy to have all of them in my life.  My friendships are amazing. (See F is for Female Friendship) They keep me grounded and help me see my life more realistically than I tend to do and have saved me from going off the deep end many a time.  I am so lucky to know these women.  My coworker relationships are a bit more complex. I truly like some of my coworkers (some are even in my Female Friends category) and there are some I could do without. I do have respect for most of them, however. They are some of the smartest people I've ever met and they are doing pretty innovative things. My romantic life I will not talk about at the moment, but I will have more to say about it in a later post.  Let's just say things are looking up!

  1. Dropping by from A-Z, and glad to meet you, Mary. Relationships are indeed the engine behind our lives, whether we see it (or admit it) or not. Good relationships, bad ones, superficial ones, deep ones--they all define us and shape us in one way or another. Glad you have a good family life! Mine is terrible, haha--small family, only child, dad died 20 years ago, mom is--well, Mom :) And I live far, far away, which also doesn't help. I've been lucky to find (and keep) great friends along the way, as well as a fantastic man that landed, totally undeserved, in my life around 9 years ago. Without them I really don't know where I'd be.

    Great post, and good luck with the rest of the challenge!
