    The word pictures you so artistically paint are so thought-provoking!

    Salina,
    I think you’ve covered every possible aspect of this topic and honestly; it’s so good to see these points written down!

    It’s good to be reminded we’re not alone in these common human struggles and that we are never separated from our precious Lord!

    I appreciate your referring to “The Dance” of life and how we can get out of step with one another. I like the idea of putting effort into learning some new dance steps when it comes to bettering pivotal relationships and at the same time letting some go.

    Everything you shared was very wise and very helpful! You rocked that blog cover as well!

    You’re the Best!

      Hi Annie. Thank you for your kind words. I’m so glad you found this blog helpful! I like comparing relationships to dancing, because they really are a type of dance. I’ve had to learn a lot of new steps as my children mature into adults. The relationship has to change with the changes for it to remain healthy and vibrant. And for the relationship to change, I have to change. I guess it’s a good thing I like change! ~ Salina

    This reminds me of live and let live. Expectations are premeditated resentments. We are constantly changing. My X and I knew this and we are still in each other lives, even though she has married again. In order for relationships to grow there has to be freedom to be who you are. I agree the relationship with God is the one that has no end.

      Hi Sal. I love this: “Expectations are premeditated resentments.” WOW! That is worth pondering, to be sure. I know when I am hurt, frustrated or angry about something that happened in a relationship, it is usually because the other person behaved outside of my expectations. In some cases I can let go of my expectations. In other cases it isn’t appropriate. It takes real wisdom to know where to draw the line. Thank you, my friend! ~ Salina
