Socrates had it right when it comes to friendship –
“Be slow to fall into friendship, but when thou art in, continue firm and constant.”
Having great friends and healthy relationships is an asset. They give you more energy and make life more enjoyable. But not all relations can or should last forever.
Transitional relationships come into your life for a reason and a season.
They could be a transactional relationship with a Realtor helping you sell your home. A mentor who steps into your life – even a new romantic relationship after a breakup.
Transitional relationships enter your life to help you go from where you are to where you want to go. Once you’re there, they are no longer needed.
