The Relation Raft

Some people have relationships and all sorts of other ships.

I being a bit on the awkward side would like to take this time to announce that I don’t really do well in relationships… mostly because I have only have a makeshift raft of relations:

It stays afloat and everything… but it has no sides… it’s not really going to protect you from the water or sharks or anything. Actually it isn’t really helpful unless you need to be marooned on Gilligan’s Island… or you want to hang out with Tom Sawyer and Jim…

I think those last 2 sentences alone explain why I have a relation-raft.

Also the fact that today I am so excited to be able to stay at home by myself…  explains a lot of it too. I mean I’ve just had something to do every night for the last 2 weeks… and tonight screams “Let’s wear sweatpants and watch romantic comedies while you illustrate.”

Any who happy Wednesday!

And how does everybody keep their relationships/rafts/buckets afloat?

  1. The thing that keeps your brother and my relationship afloat is allowing one another “me time” and realizing that we are two individuals who are different, but share a life together. We both have changed somewhat since the beginning 10 years ago, but you have to be friends enough to accept those changes and be in love enough to make it work.

    My advice, don’t WANT a relationship and don’t dream about the movie relationships – it will all work out!

  2. I’ve been married for 18 years now. I have no idea how we’ve made it work, but maybe that’s the key: just keep going and try not to question why things work, just remember to be grateful they do.
