the scientist

I found this, written from a year ago, and wanted to share with the world (or the few people that read this):

It’s amazing how everything can be boiled down to science. It’s really a wonder why I never enjoyed it more. Today’s lesson has to do with relationships and physics. Relationships are like the Newton’s laws of motion. Every action as an equal and opposite reaction. My therapist tried to convey this to me when I was younger, but instead used the game of “tug-o-war” as an example. She said that every time you pull, the other person pulls back. Sometimes I think what she meant was: every time you push, the other person pulls away. 

Anyway, back to Newton. Briefly stated, the laws are as follows:

1. An object will remain at rest, or continue to move at a constant velocity, unless an external net force acts upon it.
2. Net force on an object is equal to its rate change of momentum.
3. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

The most obvious one that I am trying to relate here is the third. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Meaning, you push on something, it will push back with the exact same force. Sometimes I guess it feels like two similar sides of magnets trying to be pushed together. They’ll get close, but they will never completely connect because of… well, whatever magnets do. They repell away from each other.

The second law, I think, if pertaining to relationships, has to do with pressure. If there is a force on an object (or, well, person) pressuring it (he or she) to do something, it will change momentums just as quickly and move on to something else. If you are trying to force feelings or pressure someone into a relationship, they will find a greener pasture and move there. Quickly.

And finally is the first law. An object… or a person… will be stagnant until something else tries to change it. When this happens, of course, the second law comes into play and they move as quickly as the force allows them to. Once this happens, the third law comes into place and the force that is moving the person away, pushes harder for fear of losing them and they push back and propell away.
