“Take care how you travel”.
There are many times a loved-one will encourage a person leaving from home, “Travel Carefully”. It is a suggestion that is given no matter the mode of transport.
Similar advice can be given for travelling through life. There are many corners and crossroads to negotiate. There are numerous ideas and philosophies for happiness and success to be pondered. Going steady through life will encounter major as well as minor decision crises. Take it steady!
Now, what about that special girl friend? She is telling her girl friends some of her secrets. Another boy approaches her with hopes of a positive response. You hope her response will be, “I’m already going steady”.
It’s a special time for learning to trust each other.
It’s a growth experience as, together, you traverse differences. Ones hopes and aspirations may be non- negotiable. Going steady can then come to an abrupt end!
It’s a learning adventure. There are ‘gives’ and ‘takes’. Going steady means getting to know each other’s likes and dislikes. It is also a time to become aware of important areas of compatibility.
It becomes a faith journey. As information about each other increase, so does the mutual respect and admiration. It is not surprising that the “Love Bug” bites. Then follows the confusion as to what part aches or what part itches.
Then when the “Cupid Bubble” doesn’t burst there is the joyful entry into prospects of marital bliss.
Going steady continues.
