We have relationships with lots of different people: our family and our friends; husbands and wives; girlfriends and boyfriends; our work mates and class mates; our boss, clients, contractors and employees; doctors, dentists, gym buddies etc. In addition, we also have relationships with things: our pets, our cars, technological devices, football teams, music and even food and alcohol.
Some of these relationships are healthy, some of them unhealthy and some are just insane! Furthermore, the relationships we have with these people and things changes over time; sometimes your relationship is full of the joys of spring, and then suddenly it or they just get on your nerves and you decide it’s time to run for the hills.
Interestingly, in my relationships it’s usually the other person that’s breaking the speed of light to get distance from me. And, curiously, even the things I love appear to want a divorce. Luckily, my Teckie Knight makes their flight a little more difficult.
So, what are your Top 3 Healthy Relationships, your Top 3 Unhealthy Relationships and your Top 3 Insane Relationships? Come on ‘spill the beans’?
According to my brother, these are my Top 3 Unhealthy Relationships:
- She’s head over heels in love with Leeds United
- She thinks her Apple Nano is actually a human limb
- She has an allergic reaction when she is close to anything that resembles a kitchen appliance, a clothes shop or a hairdresser
Well, is he pulling my leg? The above list just goes to show that blood might be thicker than water but my brother doesn’t know me at all. Seriously, I’m mad about my coffee machine– and that’s a kitchen appliance. Also, what’s the problem with listening to music? It’s an efficient way of experiencing lots of emotions.
