As we get older, relationships and the connections we make, regardless of their nature become central to our lives. The energy around them become more noticeable. This is often and obviously attributed to our own growth, emotional maturity and needs. The productivity and support we garner from these relationships carries a heavier weight with age.

It can be a scary revelation, one that we would rather, at times, ignore. Relationships evolve but they can also devolve. We may realize that longevity carries a weight that becomes more of a burden than a blessing.

There has been some talk on Twitter about relationships and the recognition of helpful v obstinate connection, and what happens when the dynamic shifts.

Thank you for listening.
