success has continued to elude you in the development of certain types
of relationships in your life, whether in romance or friendship or
professional contexts, it may be because you're treating this particular
relationship-type as too utterly different from the other types you may
find easier to develop. In other words, if
you're so good at making friends, why are you approaching dating
situations as if they require following a completely distinct set of
rules? Or why aren't you treating that annoyingly inescapable co-worker
with the same level of peaceful acceptance you learned to foster with
your pesky sibling? People are people… and no matter the role (chosen or
involuntarily acquired) they play in your life, the same basic habits
of authentic exchange and sympathetic understanding will serve you well.
You may find yourself better able to shine in whatever relational
context(s) have previously tripped you up if you stop putting these
certain types of people in special categories… a complicating device
which only makes you act weirder than you otherwise would.
