Satisfaction with stagnation is repugnant and eventually fatal. We are land sharks of a sort. We die if we stop moving forward for too long. The same happens in our relationships. Everyone is always moving in some direction, even when they appear to be set in concrete. If two people in a relationship stop moving forward, they stop being real people and start becoming topsoil. If one stops while the other does not, the first becomes an anchor whose cable often isn’t strong enough to hold them together. Likewise, if they begin moving in opposite directions, the relationship can’t last for long. It’s work together, always moving forward, or die.
