Guest - Johnny LeGrand - KINGS & QUEENS - Real Relationships Explained”.
Shortly after my wife and I separated way back in 1984, for a brief time we considered getting back together. One day, in the midst of our reconciliation negotiations, I said to her, “Honey, if we get back together, you’re going to treat me like a King. Her rather sarcastic response was, “Why in the world would I want to do that?"
Well, my answer to that one question is the reason for the existence of "KINGS & QUEENS - Real Relationships Explained”. It was an amazingly simple, logical, “new” concept, that, evidently, very few people are able to wrap their heads around. My answer to her question was … “Because, I’m going to treat you like a Queen.” Without realizing it, I had figured out, perhaps, the biggest reason for almost all the problems experienced in relationships! For some reason, most people either cannot, or, will not, treat the other person like we all want and deserve to be treated - like royalty. (Note: Jesus washed the feet of his apostles.)
And, from that day to this, I have never wavered in my total commitment to that concept. That was the only thing that I thought made any kind of sense back then; and, today, over thirty years later, I still think that this is the only kind of thinking that makes any kind of sense. Because, at the end of the day, if, in reality, I’m treating you like a Queen; and, you’re treating me like a King, we’ve got a pretty good thing going; and that's something we can both work with, because, that’s a “REAL” Relationship. While “KINGS and QUEENS” is not a religious work, per se, I have conscientiously tried to base the information contained therein, upon many time-tested principles such as: The Golden Rule: “All things, therefore, that you want men to do to you, you also must likewise do to them.” … “Teach by example.” … “Turn the other cheek - Don’t do evil for evil.” … “Forgive others and you’ll be forgiven.” … and, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” These are principles contained in the Bible, and, THEY REALLY DO WORK!!! Through the introduction “KINGS and QUEENS – Real Relationships Explained”, I hope to provide a looking-glass through which people will be able to look at their relationships, (past, present, and any future relationships in which they might find themselves), in an entirely new and different way.
I’ve been around awhile, and I’ve seen a lot of what works, and a lot of what doesn’t seem to work in relationships. I’ve personally been through a lot of what people go through in good relationships, as well as bad ones. Regarding most of the personal relationships I’ve been in, in the past, in all honestly, I didn’t handle the bad ones very well; and I handled the good ones even worse … (Any of you ever think about the really good people you’ve just let slip through your fingers in the past; the really good ones you just casually let get away? … How dumb is that?) Well, anyway, one of the things I bring to the table is experience; lot’s and lots of experience. Not only have I lived long enough to hear most of the really bad advice given by all the so-called “relationship experts” … I’ve lived long enough to see some of the tragic consequences of that bad advice in the lives of some of the people around me.
Now, I feel it necessary to let you know, it’s quite possible you may not like some of the things I have to say concerning relationships … (I don’t even like some of the things I have to say concerning relationships.) But, they need to be said. You may not believe some of the things I have to say; you may not agree with some of the things I have to say. You may not even understand some of the things I have to say. And, if you don’t, that’s ok. I never claimed to have all the answers, (In fact, I don't think anyone has all the answers.). And I have never encouraged anyone to take my advice or do anything I might suggest. All I ask, is, that you take a look at what I have to say with an objective eye. And, if after judging the information on its own merit, you feel it deserves further consideration, by all means consider it. But, if, after closer consideration, you feel there’s nothing to it; you can disregard everything you’ve heard, get back on the “Relationship Merry-Go-Round”, and keep on going in circles the rest of your life - it’s up to you. But, at least, you’ll be better prepared to consider some new and more positive ways of operating within the context of a nurturing, warm, and loving relationship - a REAL relationship. I do think it’s only reasonable to assume that, at least, some improvement could be made in the quality of pretty much any of the relationships most people are in today. And, if what you’ve been doing in the past has not worked as well as you would've liked, it would also seem reasonable for you to, at least, listen to some of the things I have to say. You owe it to yourself to start thinking about trying something new.
I’m not saying I know everything there is to know about love, people, or relationships; but, I have seen some REAL people, in REAL relationships enjoying life, and giving and receiving REAL love. And I’ll attempt to show you some of the things I’ve witnessed and experienced having to do with REAL relationships.
