Everyone wants to have good relations, especially with family members and a few friends. Isn’t that right? But they apparently are not automatically established. Individuals are different, even those in the same family. They do not always see things in the same way. They may often respond to circumstances and encounters differently. And individuals are subject to changes in their moods, interests, and needs as they grow older. So establishing good relations is an ongoing challenging process, but it is an important part of being a human and living with other humans.
What are the qualities that are present in good relations?
What do you think that it takes to establish good relations with other individuals? What personal attitudes and behavior are necessary within and from individuals if they are going to be able to establish and to maintain good relations with others?
I would suggest that a person who wants to have good relations with others must first be a person who has the virtue of character. Then he or she must be able and willing to share the gifts of forgiveness and encouragement to others for their offensive actions and attitudes and their efforts to make good changes in their lives and relationships. For further insight into these qualities see these statements on my website: “character”, “forgiveness”, and “encouragement”. Let’s talk about this.
