practice investment relationships.Based on what youve learned this week,tell one thing that you will do to change the way you invest in relationships. Investments are what we put into relationships that we could not retrieve if the relationship ends.One way to practice investment in relationships is the giving of time and attention.One thing that I will do is learn how to devote more time and attention to those relationships that means the most to me. 2.Give an example of how you practice committments in relationships.Based on what youve learned this week,tell one thing you will do to improve your approach to committment. Committment is the decision to remain in a relationship.Committment is defined as a decision,not a feeling.One thing that I can do to improve my approach to committment is to realize that I have made the decision to committ and I must abide by the decision. 3.Give an example of how you practice trust in a relationship.Based on what you've learned this week,tell one thing that you will do to improve trust in your interpersonal relationships. Trust involves believing in another's reliability to do what he or she has promised,and emotionally relying on another to look out for our welfare and our relationship.An example of trust is the giving of your heart to another and trusting that they will not break it.One thing that I can do to improve trust in my interpersonal relationship as ameasurement for new ones. 4.Give an example of how you've observed relational dialectics in your interpersonal relationships.Based on what you learned this week,tell one thing that you can do to reduce dialectical tensions in your relationships. Relational dialects are opposing forces,or tensions that are continuous and normal in relationships.An example of relational dialect is the desire to remain independent.Romantic partners want to spend time together and share joint interests,but at the sme time want to make sure that their individuality is not taken over by the relationship.One way that I can do is to reduce the relational dialects in my relationships is to devote some time to my self and an interest that is mine,and not have to feel as if I need to devote every waking moment to another person. Respond RE: MAIN POST Lora Dolberry 3/3/2013 6:33:13 PM Lashuna I like your post that you submitted about what you would do to change the way you invest in relationships. Spending more time and given more attention to those that means the most to you just makes a whole lot of sense. We are only here on earth for just a little while and we must not take it for granite, so time spent means so much more than we could ever imagine. Respond RE: MAIN POST Instructor Luscher 3/6/2013 12:12:34 PM Lashuna, the text points out that investments are those things that we put into relationships that we cannot get back. You mentioned time and attention, obviously two things that can never be retrieved. What else could be considered an "investment" under the text's definition? Respond week8classdiscussion Lora Dolberry 3/3/2013 7:00:47 PM Give an example of how you practice investment in relationships. Based on what you've learned this week. tell one thing that you will do to change the way you invest in relationships. I practice investment in my relationship with my eight month old granddaughter by spending as much time with her as possible and also by investing materially by making sure she has what she needs. The one thing I would do to change the way I invest in her is to give her more of what she needs instead of what she wants, when she is old enough to distinguish between the two. Give an example of how you practice commitment in relationships. Based on what you've learned this week, tell one thing that you will do to improve your approach to commitment. An example of how I practice commitment in relationship is by investing in my children future. The one thing that I would do to improve my approach to commitment is to do as much as I can while I exist so far as going the extra mile. Give an example of how you practice trust in a relationship. Based on what you've learned this week, tell one thing that you will do to improve trust in your interpersonal relationships. I practice trust in a relationship by relying and opening up to someone that I have earned their trust. The one thing that I would do to improve trust in a relationship is to continue to remain close to the person and believing in their reliability. Give an example of how you've observed relational dialectics in your interpersonal relationships. Based on what you've learned this week, tell one thing that you can do to reduce dialectical tensions in your relationships. I observed relational dialectics in my interpersonal relationship with my spouse by wanting him to always be here with me, but at the same time wanting my space. One way to reduce dialectical tension is for us to separate from one another for a while to regroup. Respond RE: week8classdiscussion Lashuna Robinson 3/4/2013 12:23:33 PM I agree with you on your post when it comes to how to practice trust in a relationship. Respond RE: week8classdiscussion Instructor Luscher 3/6/2013 12:15:14 PM Lora, thanks for what you said regarding commitment. The text points out that commitment is deciding to stay in a relationship. From you post, it seems you have decided to stick it out with your kids as long as it takes. Have you ever had a work relationship in which you practiced commitment? Respond Welcome to Week 8 Discussion Before putting up your main post, please review the section at the beg Instructor Luscher 3/4/2013 8:52:59 AM Welcome to Week 8 Discussion Before putting up your main post, please review the section at the beginning Chapter 8 of the Wood text called "Features of Satisfying Personal Relationships". There you well find a detailed explanation of each of the concepts you are being asked to discuss here: investment commitment trust comfort with relational dialectics I look forward to reading what everyone has to say on this important topic. I will be joining you in the discussion. Wood points out that “love” is an emotion, yet “commitment” is a decision. Can any of you give us an example of a relationship you know of (or are part of) in which the two partners are in love but not committed, or the opposite…committed but not in love? Respond
