Talk about any relationship, be it between relatives or friends, is very unique and abstract. Strange is the thought of how this develops. When a man and a woman enters into a marital relationship, they take a vow to be there for each other under the same roof. Over a period of togetherness, they develop an unbreakable bond for which there cannot be a 'term'. As time passes by, the man and the woman become very good friends surpassing their physical attractions. This is only a general statement and might not be true in many cases.
A small example to cite: This is about a couple who had been married for a few months and the closeness between them is just building up. The man meets with an accident and is in a critical state. The wife is beside him 24 hours. His siblings fly from here and there to be with him.. When the man comes out of the danger state, he tells proudly to his friends about the air dashing of his brothers and sisters who had come to see him and how much they love each other. His friend replied that his siblings had to come as it is a blood relation and it is natural for them being drawn closer in times of difficulties. But, he should, in turn be proud of his wife who has been connected with him only for a few months and is there shedding tears and keeping vigil 24 hours with prayers at heart. That is the greatness of this relationship. This feeling of belongingness goes much beyond the marital status.
Relationship is the vibe one feels when you get along with someone. Not everyone can gel with anyone. It is an unique quotient . Relationships widen as we grow and meet more people in different places. But, do we recall each and everyone of them? Travel is an ideal time when you meet new people but most of them bid goodbye once the purpose is contained. I know of many of my relatives and friends who share the most wonderful relationship with their pets. This is an inner feeling which is shown and reciprocated.
It is difficult to build a relationship but dissolves so easily without we realizing that it has ended. There are other times when you meet your friend after a few years, you can sense the current flowing between each other. It looks as if you had not missed much and easy to get back to the news of the good old days and also updation of each other.
It is fact that we cannot live alone,need to have someone to talk to and exchange views and news. I am sure many of us would be having someone , be it a friend or sibling with whom you can confide all your feelings. For some of us, it may be the spouse himself. Relationship develops on its own over a period of time and it is worth all the treasures of the world. There are some who come close to us and leave footprints and we are never the same again.
Was impressed by the following quote, hence thought would share with you all. Do try to revive your old friendship and also develop new ones.
'You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.' ~Frederick Buechner
