A Vital Ingredient of Relationships..

Given below is a famous quote by Aristotle:

“Man is by nature a social animal; an individual who is unsocial naturally and not accidentally is either beneath our notice or more than human. Society is something that precedes the individual. Anyone who either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need to, and therefore does not partake of society, is either a beast or a god”

Many of us can not live alone..We have to enter in to relationships for living our life..No person can deny the fact that mutual dependency on others plays an important role here..

We have to manage many relationships starting from family, friends,neighbors, colleagues and list is  always endless…There are some persons to whom we are very close and we share everything about us…There are also others with whom we are not that much close and it’s just a hi – bye relationships…I am not more concerned about not so close relationships..But close relationships always play an important role in our lives..

All of us may have different opinions on relationships and I feel there is no hard and fast rule here…

There are some people who believe that only  love is  important and they can easily forgive and forget betrayals of others’ and move on in their life..

But some people like me feel that trust is very very vital in any relationship and we usually combine both trust and love..

OK, let me be clear..I usually take time to believe others and if I believe them, I  always remain true to that relationship…But if I find out that they betray my trust, I really can’t forgive or forget them..I won’t shout at them but I always try to make myself emotionally distant from them..It hurts me a lot but I can never trust them again..I know I may be labelled as sensitive and immature but I strongly feel trust is necessary in any kind of relationship..


I have heard this dialogue from some people “If you truly love someone, you can easily  forgive whatever they do”

I usually reply that “I know that everybody including me makes some mistakes in life..I can always forgive mistakes,but I can never forgive even a small breach of trust”


According to me, trust is very important in any relationship..It makes or breaks a relationship..

  1. Respect. I think respect for each other despite knowing each other inside out is what makes a relationship. When you respect someone you choose to focus on their positive points, you choose to see the best in them.
