What types of happenings do you put value on in your life? What do you consider to be characteristics of "success"? What type of legacy would you leave? Do you consider yourself to be independent, dependent or interdependent? However you choose to answer these questions, understand that you don't live life a lone, therefore a major key to what happens in your life is impacted by the people around you, and the relationships you create. There are of course many types of relationships; platonic, romantic, casual, professional, distant, childhood, familial, etc. Believe or not, all these relationships mean something. They either make us stronger, are a reflection of how we view ourselves or how we think we should be treated. The challenge is that in the midst of all these relationships, we don't necessarily pay attention to the different categories and of up most importance, which ones are our "QUALITY" relationships. Now, I am very sure we all define Quality differently, but for the sake of this post, quality is defined as something of a distinguished significant nature. A quality relationship is marked by growth, accountability, open sharing, positivity, nurturing, and most of all, something indescribable.
These quality relationships can serve as a mirror that truly shape us as human beings for the better. These are relationships that challenge us to be better people because as the end of the day no one should stay the same. One should always be open to growing, transforming and becoming better; the only thing constant in life is change, and that should be you. Ask yourself.
Do the people I surround myself with challenge me to be better? Do they challenge me to go after my dreams? Am I in relationships in which, if something drastic occurred, I could depend on someone? Do me and person X hold each other accountable? for the promises we make with one another or for ourselves ? Is there more positivity or negativity exchanged? Does person X majority of the time have my best interest at hand? If yes to all, it sounds like you have some quality . Be grateful, for if the world had more quality relationships, this world would be different.
I guarantee you, everyone comes into your life for a reason, and the people that you create quality relationships with really reflect your character and where you want to be in life . You are a blossoming flower so make sure that those in your life are watering and not drowning you.
