There are many complementary ways of describing human relationships. No one way of describing a human relationship is adequate in and of itself --- in isolation from other complementary ways of describing human relationships. How we describe our human relationships often affects the nature of our human relationships; depending upon what we emphasize in our descriptions, and what we systematically ignore. Our physical bodies are objective elements within our human relationships; yet we may have extensive knowledge of the objective elements and of the interactions among the objective elements of our personal relationships --- and be virtually ignorant of the nature of our personal relationships which are reflexive in nature. Personal relationships cannot be "defined" in terms of some limited range of the aspects of the personal relationships; e.g.,: formal, familial, legal, financial, religious, secular, business, professional, work, sexual, intimacies, dialogues, conversations, political, traditions, etc. It becomes exceedingly difficult to describe our personal relationships accurately --- if our relationships entail interactions within webs/fabrics characterized by: addictions, codependency, collusions, dishonesty, pretentiousness, arrogance, self righteousness, conflicts, violence, etc. There is then virtually no reliable perspective from which to apprehend the true nature of our relationships --- for our dysfunctional relationships are likely to profoundly affect any persons who seek to apprehend their true natures. Such relationships seek to conceal their natures from those who seek to truly apprehend what their true natures are. Outsiders cannot "define" or "control" the nature of a relationship; even though outsiders may play significant supportive or distractive roles. Insiders cannot unilaterally "define" or "control" the nature of their personal relationship(s); even though insiders will clearly play significant rules in the initiation and evolution of a personal relationship. The following factors will be significant elements in the initiation and evolution of a relationship: 1. Desires, hopes, visions, expectations, fears; 2. Abilities, disabilities, health, disease; 3. Communication and listening skills; 4. Attitudes, dispositions, assumptions; 5. Beliefs, convictions, doubts, certainties; 6. Differences, similarities, conflicts, needs; 7. Childhood experiences, injuries and memories; 8. Previous significant relationships. Relationships change the participants in the relationships; and the changes in the participants change the relationships in which they are participants. Relationships change in ways which cannot be unilaterally controlled by the participants --- according to any systematic plan on the part of any person(s). Relationships can change in ways which nobody can anticipate --- no matter how hard they may try to anticipate the direction and timing of changes. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
