Relationships, Mine, Others', and Lessons

Coming up in this Life blog, I’m going to start writing about relationships, including – how I’d go about finding; maintaining; stories of others, and lessons I’ve learned. I will also include my own stories, past hurts, and past mistakes that less than a handful of people know about.

When God recently indicated to me to embark on writing this series (on this completely unexpected subject), I was taken aback. At first, it didn’t make sense to me. Slowly and surely, it started to make sense to me more and more. I began to remember the connection between relationships and the emotional-spiritual affects which affects your health, your minds ability to function, and your work or academic performance. Take for example my student who had trouble concentrating in her school work when she was dealing with problems with her boyfriend. (He was cheating on her.)

Take also for example the man who developed a life threatening condition (aneurysm and cavernous sinus thrombosis) shortly after he started having problems with his marriage. His wife has a boyfriend and the husband wants a divorce. But in his country, his son will almost certainly be awarded to the wife in the courts as well as a lot of his fortune. He doesn’t want to lose his son, and he doesn’t want his son to grow up without both parents. Also, he is emotionally distraught from having to live with a wife who has a boyfriend out there. He is constantly full of anger, depression, and emotional pains. It was shortly after all these that he developed his life threatening condition. I believe that it was no coincidence. I am not saying his relationship and emotional troubles were the sole cause of his health problem, but I am saying that his troubles at home were definitely a major contributing factor.

Anyway, my point is that our relationships and emotional states are completely related to our SpirFit states (mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical state.)

Therefore, it is not really "out there" (as it initially felt to me) that I am writing about relationships. I think you will find the lessons and stories I provide (including my own experiences) interesting and helpful.
