What do you look for in a relationship with someone else? I heard someone recently say that, in developing a relationship with someone else, you look at what you each bring to the table for the other. I have thought a lot about that. I have never approached relationships that way -- personal or business. I try to look strictly at what I can bring to the other person because that is what Christ commanded us to do (love one another) ... I figure that my reward for doing so will eventually come in some form.
Any thoughts? As I have thought about this, I have realized that my ideas are so diametrically opposed to this other person's that I really feel I need a reality check here and would love your input. Furthermore, is there a difference between relationships that are strictly personal and those borne out of business?
