  • Building Relationships

    It is funny how we talk about building relationships; yet, we do not seem to spend a lot of time focused on what we mean by “building.” At some point in life we realize relationships are constructed. When that specifically happens, I do not know. In primary school, we make friends. We come home to our parents and say something like, “I made a friend at school today.” In the early days of school, friendships seem to come spontaneously. As we mature, it appears that relationships need more specific attention so that they might evolve. The easy friendships we were able to strike up in our beginning school years do not seem to come as easily.
