One should know that life cannot be measured by what material things you own but can be measured by the number of people that you have earned. By earning people I mean, earning their love, their admiration, their trust and their affection. When you build a relationship with someone, you are embarking on a journey with them.
Connecting with people may be one of the most important things that you do in life because it is what shows how much people loved you and how much you loved them. A lot of experts have also come out and said that it is important in the world than the relationships that you would treasure with your closest people. Here are some interesting points that you should keep in mind.
- Human beings are indeed biologically hardwired to form some close bonds with other human beings and even animals in some cases. There are people who have so many pets that they prefer the interactions with their pets more than their peers. Having friends and family and having a good relationship with them is indeed really important. Humans are actually healthier, happier and have known to even live longer when they have strong and close relationships in our lives. Relationships with our romantic interests are also important because that is what furthers our bloodline.
- The quality of the bond that you have with people also matters. Not all friendships have a bond, and not all of them have a connection that will make the relationship last a lifetime. Some are more important than others, some would matter to you more than others, you need to see which are more important and prioritize the genuine and real ones over the ones that are not and you should strive to keep those relationships around you no matter what, for as long as you possibly can. Those are the relationships that will see you through hardships in most situations.
- Make sure that if you are in an unhealthy relationship, you should make sure to do everything you can to make it better. And if it does not get better, you should be mature and logical enough to get out of such a relationship when you can and on good terms.
- A good friendship or a good relationship should actually lift you up and fill you up with life. It should not do anything other than that. Make sure you find someone who applauds you when you rise up and helps you when you are put down. You should differentiate the ones who are genuinely trying to do good for you, apart from the ones who are pretending to do good.
