Is Consistency important in relationships?
I have my thoughts but will share this first from Brandon Tarver, in TX.:
"Consistency is crucial. Think how animals are compared to man. They are consistent and have been that way since the beginning of time. Man is so inconsistent it’s ridiculous. Let’s pick a wild animal such as an alligator. Imagine if an alligator acted like an alligator one day, then a duck they next day, then a tiger the day after that and like a dog another day. Would you have any respect for it? No b/c it’s inconsistent and you don’t know what to expect, trust, feel or predict. Now imagine that same animal being consistent with another animal, a human and its own kind, how do you feel about it now? I bet you would respect it. That’s how powerful consistency is and no relationship can survive with inconsistency b/c it will frustrate you. Trust me on that one."
I agree with a lot of this is saying here, consistency is our expectations in relationships. Expectations are good in the right context, but expectations can become a hindrance if you are not willing to be flexible in the long term of the relationships. Every relationship will start at one point and if there is movement and growth in the relationship then there will be change. This change is probably the most consistent in life and its up to us Maximizers to be in those moments when we sense change and to be patient in our own understanding and the other person understanding as well.
