However, they can also be a source of a tremendous amount of pain and suffering. There are many relationships that we can never control.
I thought a lot about what I wanted to write about for friends, family, romantic relationships, and professional relationships and was stumped.
There is so much advice on relationships, of every kind, that it can be overwhelming. Advice, and research, often end up being contradictory. There are so many different moving parts with relationships, from dynamics to personalities to the environment.
There are no easy answers and there are often no clear answers either.
So I thought about all of this for a long time and realized that it wouldn’t be right to give you a few newsletters on how to generically have a better romantic relationship, or better friendships, or better work relationships, or a better relationship with your family.
What can be good advice for one person in one situation can be awful and destructive for someone else.
So here is what I am going to do.
If you have a concern, a problem, or a situation, email me directly about it. It is easier and better for me to give you personal advice, based on your situation, than to write about something and hope it works for you, knowing full well that it might be the worst advice ever for your life and your situation.
Then next week, I am going to send you a list of relationship guidelines, which are for every relationship you have, be it family, friends, romantic, or professional. You’ll get general etiquette, social media guidelines, and suggestions for dealing with difficult people. Believe it or not, the same rules apply to pretty much all relationships we have.
Thanks for reading- I appreciate you.
