How do we maintain passion for our relationships over time and distance?
I think passion is most often connected with doing. It's a physical reaction that incites you to action. If you are passionate enough about something, it will cause you to move, right? Well, maybe. While this may seem obvious for certain interests you hold, other passions may present more of a challenge when it comes to incorporating their presence into your daily life. For example, when I refer back to my earlier post of what I believe to be some of my life’s passions, some of these aren’t exactly tangible, such as Loyalty, Openness and Maintaining Friendships.
So how do we translate our best motivations into meaningful action? While the contemplation of ideas and meditating on certain qualities we would like to achieve can be both powerful and useful, there is also something to be said for bringing these ideas to life.
Through the years, I’ve noticed it can be more and more difficult to keep in touch with the people in our lives. Before we know it, weeks or months have gone by without any real interaction. It can be moments like these where we start to feel a decline in our connection with others. So how can we manage to maintain our relationships through time and distance? It’s definitely tough, but I think part of conquering any challenge is owning up to its difficulty. If you’re passionate about loving the people in your life and making sure they know it, the effort you put forth can help your relationships reach new levels.
