When people feel their emotions and memories flooding the front of their minds, they often feel the need to reach out for something else or to create something new. They need to go on a trip, make a new plan, or they need to create a new relationship.
This is what it’s like for people who are experiencing emotional trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other forms of mental illness. For many, the search for something new or something that feels new and fresh is a very real and intense experience. For others, it’s their version of OCD. And for the many people who are plagued by depression, anxiety, or other similar mental illnesses, the need to create new or different relationships may be a very real experience.
This is an extremely broad topic, and I don’t want to get into the finer details of what the different kinds of relationships are. Suffice it to say that the most common one that I hear about is the love triangle. The woman is in the relationship with her sister, and the sister is in the relationship with her boyfriend. The man is in the relationship with his best friend. The best friend is in the relationship with his girlfriend.
This is exactly how I’d describe the relationship I have with my two best friends. We’re both in relationships, and we both tend to fall in love with the same girl. We both have different friends, but we both like the same girl.
