The Principles Underlying Our Relationship

Dialogue by Kit No Comments »

My Dear Kat,

I feel a need to start pulling together the principles we’ve been discovering through self-observation.

  • Make no demands
  • Be present
  • Speak the truth
  • Be consistent (though I don’t know how an inconsistent person is expected to carry this out)
  • Do as you would be done by (a reference to The Water Babies)

That’s not very many, and maybe 2 and 3 are the same thing, expressed differently.  But maybe we’re not in the business of collecting as many aphorisms as possible; it might be the opposite, of reducing it to a few guidelines and explanations of how they apply in a variety of situations.

For comparison, the couple we saw had three rules:

  • Speaking the Truth
  • Taking Healthy Responsibility
  • Expressing Appreciation
