third person = miscommunication
he said, she said. a misspoken word, a unheard hello. a glance away, a glance towards. everyday, relationships change. sometimes for the better, but a lot of times for the worse. just because of a misunderstanding. especially when a middle person is involved. take for instance a couple of my friends. two were interested in each other, a third person that was friend to both and totally well meaning told the guy that the girl had said something about him. he had misunderstood and just broke off the relationship that was only just starting with the girl. they are together now, but there was a lot of drama, just because of the involvement of a third person, and because of jumping to conclusions. teenagers need to learn to listen better, and the they need to learn to communicate better and clearer. they need to! or else they will never have successful relationships. that includes love, friendship, family, and even careers and business. teens of this current generation are terrible communicators, and when they do communicate, sometimes it is rudely, or even cruelly. we as teens need to shape up, and learn from the experiences of others. experiences of sadness, drama, hurt, and anger. then we won't have to repeat their 'history.' and if there is going to be a third person in your relationship, let's make it Christ. He's the only third person that can only positively affect our lives. not some well-meaning but nosy friend, but the big brother and friend of us all who truly knows what is best for us.
