Reality Becomes Fantasy (In that order)

I view life as a journey. As we each travel our individual paths to our various long and short term destinations, we encounter other people as their paths cross ours (sometimes we stand at crossroads with signs around our necks, waiting for someone's path to cross ours lol). In a healthy relationship, of any duration, people communicate open and honestly about there needs, desires, and expectations.

From a dialog of this nature, a decision can be made as to whether or not there is a mutual desire to travel together. As two people travel together, they will each perceive, and react to, the things they see and experience - differently - based on their differing backgrounds, experience etc... This may or may not result in one or both of the people changing their long or short term destinations, or the path(s) they wish to take to reach them.

If open honest communication is maintained throughout our journey with others, the risk for disappointment if minimized. But the reward for the effort that that level of trust and honesty require is far greater!!!

With a foundation in reality, relationships, of any duration, can become fantasy. Instead of our differing backgrounds and perceptions and reactions being catalysts for conflict, they become they basis of a synergistic relationship, where the two people together, through SHARING the journey, experience greater pleasures traveling together than they would have had traveling alone.
