One in Ten Million
In New York City, I am told that there are 10,000,000 people who live in a 25 mile radius of the Empire State Building. That’s a lot of people!
In my life there is one person that I have chosen to love. That is a very small number. But if I look at it another way, out of 10,000,000 people there is only one relationship that I really need to be nice too and treat with love. That means 9,999,999 people I really don’t have to be nice too or treat as special people (and in New York City that seems to be rather normal) but there is only 1 person who is so important that I will treat her differently than anyone else in the world. It doesn’t seem such a hard task when you think of it. Treat 1 person special out of the millions of others.
But then why do we often treat the 9,999,999 other people better than we treat the one? Because of our EGO. Someplace we make a decision to be vulnerable to this 1 person, and chances are, this 1 person will mess up someplace and disappoint us. My EGO will then start to “get even” with this 1 person and treat them less than nice. In time, both our EGO’s will define the relationship and 9,999,999 people will get a better deal than the one who counts.
Are you in a relationship where you are treating the 1 person better than the 9,999,999? If not, why not? As for me…..while I appreciate the 9,999,999 other people….. I love the 1.
