Thought Adjuster: “Dear child, this morning you are thinking about relationships; you are expressing your sadness when it appears that others don’t invest as much effort as you do in some of your relationships. Life can be distracting for many and sometimes pressing matters prevent one to cultivate precious friendships. Yet, relationships and friendships are precious to everyone--whether they are conscious of it or not. Some people are still over focused on what they can get out of the relationship and need to learn to give so that the circle of that relationship can be sealed.
“The same goes for the love relationship between the parents and the children. At first, it appears that the parents do all the giving. But such is not the case. You well know the gifts contained into a child’s smile, the joy that it brings to the parental heart. A good parent understands the level of maturity of his/her child and does not expect more than what the child can give at any given time. It is the same with friendships. Many of them have to mature as the partners are maturing. Frequently one of the partners is more mature and holds the relationship together until the other partner begins to see his/her role and starts contributing more to the relationship.
“Many relationships are taken for granted and the element of gratitude is missing until such time when there is a wake-up call of some sorts and the importance of the relationship becomes evident. Relationships should be mutually nurturing–each partner bringing some unique teachings to the table.
“Do not get discouraged, dear one, when it seems that your desire to have close relationships and friendships is not immediately reciprocated--or not at the same level. Look at everyone in your life with a patient parental heart. This phase will teach you to be a loving mother.”
