Are relationships genuine, or have they been?
How to start answering this question? The word genuine means that there is no interest attached to the individual, but to be authentic and correct. To follow the natural law of decency towards self and another. So are relationships genuine at the point of not hiding any discomfort or unhappiness? Because this is what genuine is. Perhaps relationships are more invested in denying vital truths in order to keep the interest alive? Could be a common interest to deny facts? Maybe for some although is that genuine? No.
It feels like an endless cycle of positive expectation and then disappointment to me. As much as a person seem to be temporarily able to sustain a benevolent feeling, easily this fades out when it touches the psychological emptiness that they experience. Then it is the pain that comes first, and the need to operate first aid quick fix procedure. The times are not for first fast aid any longer. The current times ask for thorough procedure. One of deep investigation into the kernel of our knowings and existences.
People that have not attained the skills they need to go through, the fire of authenticity might feel devastating. This is though the natural course. Without eggs who can make scramble eggs? Perhaps imagining making it gives some a kind of deceptive pleasure, which can indicate that some got used to living in a world of fantasy.
