Jacob Dye 9 October 2015 RD2 Word Count 1204 Detoxifying Relationships: The Natural Way Nature is the foundation for all things, it is the source of everything deemed right in the world, while also being the source of everything deemed wrong. Humans have used nature as a resource, as a home, a friend, and now a teacher. Generally, biomimicry is “the design and production of materials, structures, and systems that are modeled on biological entities and processes” there have been examples of biomimicry throughout human history through advancements in fiber, material, and design (mainly the physical forms) As suggested in a TEDx talk video “The spiders are sharing the most ancient secrets to me” (Cheryl Hayashi), it is as if nature is calling out for humans to watch how it solves solutions.

A problem that is not my issue but more of a humanity issue is the effectiveness and healthiness of social relationships. Particularly and for this paper only, monogamous relationships. I have seen so many monogamous relationships fail in my life, the only marriage so far that I have seen maintain and work through problems effectively and efficiently (in great detail) is the marriage of my parents. Relationships in the modern age both intimately with another partner and family or social “friend” relationships have all been treated with a grain of salt. Relationships are an option, a choice, something that extends another person’s life. The problem is the toxic ability and hindrance social relationships have on our lives, they only do well when they are healthy, however, when they turn negative they tend to deeply and emotionally hurt or change the individuals within the relationship personally or about the other individual within that relationship.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
