Was interesting to note recently that many individuals caught up in their careers and their successes don’t really want relationships, they instead seek an audience of sorts. They skip the involvement, the sharing, the relating as it were and just seem to want someone they can discuss their acheivements with, mention the challenges, and be on their way. I find this wholly disconcerting as I am an involver. I enjoy the actual sharing process, the getting to know on more than one level, and the participation in other’s lives and they in mine. Is it just a consequence of a world moving ever faster?? Or is it a way of playing it safe? Safe is isolating, risk is what brings reward (okay sometimes it brings disaster and pain too, believe me I am no stranger to that one!). But I do agree with the old adage that the size of the reward is equal to the size of the risk, and personally if you don’t get involved you are only selling yourself short!
