Relationships - a reason why they are sometimes challenging

Updated: May 3, 2022

Relationships, well this is complicated at its most extreme. Why are they challenging? Yes, they are, and I don’t have all the answers but I will give you one general reason. It's because people are in different cycles/directions/phases in their life compared to a person they meet. I will try and explain, see the picture, as you can see there are many train lines and stations. All lines going many different directions with stops along the way. So, let’s say that “A stop” is people meeting, and the different lines are the direction they are currently on. So, let’s see how this works.

In life you will meet many many people, some you will get along with and have a relationship and some you won’t, even though the chemistry or feelings are there. It’s because you have met this person at the wrong time. For example, if you meet a person that is just come out of a long-term relationship, chances are, they are not looking for anything serious. Say you meet a person in a relationship, maybe they are just looking for some fun, or if the person is married or live in another country. A holiday romance or the person is not honest with you.

Some people are like “Kingscross Station” very complicated with many emotions going in many different directions. This could even be you. What you should try to find is a person that is going in the same direction as you. Say like the “Victoria & Piccadilly Lines”. These two lines go in the same directions and meet at FIVE different stations. So, 5 chances for you to join their line or for them to join you. After Finsbury Park goes north, it is too late. To understand what direction people may be going in to understand what they could be to you. Don’t expect more from a person that is not even going in your direction in life.
