Tired of failed relationships and toxic friends? Maybe it's time to ask both yourself and your prospective friends some serious questions designed to uncover fundamental issues of incompatibility before wasting more time on relationships that are doomed from the start in easily identifiable ways!
This General Relationship Management System is a work in progress for improving the healthiness of relationships and the standards by which the qualities of healthy relationships are measured and maintained.
Naturally, an underlying principle of this system and the very idea of improving the healthiness of relationships, is the principle of discrimination. The entire discussion of such improvement becomes moot or meaningless where the principles and standards that apply will not be incorporated as a requirement for continuing relationships.
Accordingly, it is the declared intention of those who use this system, that relationships will be increasingly limited to those individuals who agree with the reasonableness of examining interactions and assessing the behaviors that reveal themselves in an effort to identify departures from reasonable and acceptable relationship standards that might arise, and where applicable, identifying reasonable approaches to remediation, in the interest of maintaining healthy relationship standards.
Clearly we understand that not everyone agrees that such examinations are worth the effort or are healthy exercises. We get that. It is not our intention to make any effort in this presentation to convert such individuals over to our point of view. There are plenty of people who agree that such examinations are worth the effort and healthy things to attend to, already. They require no convincing. It is with such individuals that we seek association. The others, not so much.
With that in mind, let's consider some basic relationship standards (dynamics, protocols, and expectations). We will learn where we agree, and where we don't. But first, please consider this question and share your answer:
Do you agree with the reasonableness of examining interactions between us and assessing problematic behaviors that reveal themselves in an effort to identify departures from reasonable and acceptable relationship standards that might arise, and where applicable, identifying reasonable approaches to remediation, in the interest of maintaining healthy relationship standards?
