What a relationship is
Communication is synonymous with relationship. What else is a relationship besides ongoing communication?
It is also synonymous with vulnerability. To communicate with someone is to open and expose yourself the them.
It is also synonymous with truth. For there to, in fact, be communication, truth must be present; otherwise it would be miscommunication.
The opposite is unrelatedness, defensiveness and lying or withholding.
Unrelatedness, defensiveness and lying or withholding are not morally wrong. They just simply don’t work to be more related to someone, closer to them… to have a better relationship with them.
What a relationship actually is… is communication.
