My Friend Tracy

My friend Tracy and I had this much needed conversation about respect(see: respect in relationships; previous blog). I told her about this experience that I'd had with one of my closest high school friends, and how I had to have respect for his priorities. He joined a fraternity, and although it caused tension in our relationship, and our relationship isn't the same to this day, I had to have respect for his aspirations. To a certain extent that just meant stop bitching about our friendship not being what it used to be. But this wasn't a very big deal. I just had to come to terms with the fact that I existed as a part of his 'old' family, and his 'new' family was top priority now.

But a lot of times I feel like those things are lost, sometimes you just have to honestly respect someones wishes, because its just selfishness that drives you to stop a person from doing what they aspire to do, in order to exist with you. Of course any type of relationship needs a certain level of balance, thats something to keep in mind as well. But recognition of someones priorities is a vital part of that. But on the other end there's sacrifice, but thats another blog all together.
So the words of the day are, respect for peoples priorities.

These words were brought to you be Dreams.
