So I've been a little slow in posting for a little while. I got a little distracted because I met an incredible girl. I fell in love and that's all I could think about for quite a while. She was definitely a distraction, but she was a good one. I'll miss her lots, but life goes on.
There are a couple things here that I find very interesting. I recently read "Man's Search for Meaning" and one of the big themes that I saw in the book was about man's ability to adapt. In the book, the prisoners in WWII concentration camps adapted to their conditions to the point where it seemed almost normal. I've seen similar things happen in relationships. At first, they seem so exciting and happy. Then maybe you just adapt to it and that excitement wears off. I can remember that happening in my last few relationships. I don't necessarily think it's bad, it's just a different phase in the relationship. I think that's where you decide how committed you actually are to the other person.
The other interesting thing is that I've been noticing is that people will pull themselves out of relationships because they feel they're not worthy of their partner. I've heard people tell me that they feel they're not good enough for their partner or someone else would match their partner better. I find this interesting because I think it's a human trait. I can't imagine other animals do this. I don't know, I just think it makes more sense to have the other person decide your value than to sell yourself short by thinking you're not good enough.
Anyway, those are some of the interesting thoughts I've had on relationships lately. I don't know if they necessarily apply to my last relationship.
I am excited to get back into interesting things again. I have some thoughts from this year's Google IO. I also have made some advances in my sad book. On top of all that, artist night will return again :)
Still waiting for artist night...ReplyDelete
