There is always one relationship in any lifetime that becomes more than was ever hoped for. It stands as a beacon and throughout all life it is felt and tried as the perfection of what particular relationships should be.
It is to be kept in mind, when one wishes for a relationship to develop and it does not, no matter the effort or wishful thinking, simply because it cannot. At another time it already was and cannot be duplicated. This does not mean that another relationship cannot be fruitful. It does not mean it cannot be meaningful and rewarding. What it does mean is that in a certain place and time you were a someone you are not now. This new someone requires other than what was.
