Random Thought: Relationship Vs. Partnership

Relationships can be so tentative & fragile. One moment a man & woman are head over heels in love, the next moment they can't stand each other. I have absolutely no interest in being a part of a relationship that can be tossed aside so easily. Many times people enter unions with one thought in mind, having 'their' needs met. For those of you who haven't gotten the memo yet, relationships are not meant to simply meet your needs. They are opportunities to learn, grow, serve and become better human beings. Doesn't sound like much fun when I put it that way, huh???

A relationship should instead be viewed as a partnership. defines partnership as,  

"An association of two or more persons engaged in a business enterprise in which the profits and losses are shared proportionally."

In this case let's just say the "business enterprise" is the relationship itself. When two people view themselves as partners they both accept responsibility for the good, the bad, and the ugly that results from their union. They pursue gains and are serious about finding ways to minimize loss. They are relentless when it comes to their business (relationship) and will do whatever it takes to ensure success.

In today's climate of K.I.M (Keep it Moving) partnerships are in no way common. Yet, I hope very much to be a part of one someday :-)
