Relationship is a beautiful word that brings forth joy,happiness and satisfaction.It can also bring us sorrow and sadness, if it’s the wrong relationship.In this fast-paced society, how often do we take out time to call up a close friend to have a hearty conversation? How often do we express our love for our parents,our spouses or our close friends??


We are witness to the increasing number of divorce cases in our society.The number of divorce cases is alarmimg and something to ponder about.Today, most people have become self obsessed,self centered and believe in the motto”I ,ME and MYSELF”.This is one of the major factors for the increaing divorce cases.Another factor is fast changing lifestyle which is preventing couples from spending quality time together.Thus, one needs to put in the extra effort to bridge the gap.In many families, kids often do not spend time with their parents.There is no family bonding and ultimately  there is no warmth in the relationship.Parents end up in old age homes.So, what’s important to maintain a good relationship??

A meaningful relationship has certain characteristics.The most important one being communication.A two way communication is essential where both the partners should be able to express their thoughts and opinions.It is important to express your words,thoughts clearly, and inturn understand what the other person is communicating.Respect for each other is also important.Respecting the other person’s individuality and accepting them for who they are are.Honesty,trust and spending quality time together is very vital.


 We have to work  hard on our relationships and its worth enjoying the fruits of a healthy relationship.Absence of good people in our lives can leave us lonely,depressed and it could also cause major psychological problems.Wealth,status and materials can never give us happiness however,genuine people by your side can give innumerable joy.I’d like to conclude with this quote by Frederick Buechner -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.
