Not friends anymore

by Kavita

What do you call it when you connect with a human being? A relationship. And what about when you connect with an object? Yet another relationship.

Whatever attracts us to bind us to itself is a sign of a relationship. It’s a bond. Whether it’s short-lived or forever, weak or strong, fickle or reliable falls onto the entities and the environment. How we nurture, cherish and savor a relationship defines if it’s rewarding and enriching.  However, if it is not as good as you want it to be, we rarely blame the entities. Most of us end up stereotyping the relationship itself.  And we most often consider it unworthy and futile to get into one.

One such relationship is popularly known as friendship. While it’s highly regarded important for our day to day life, it’s hardly understood and hence, undervalued. Friendship seems to come easy to people. It’s almost considered abundant. In the basic human urge to be social, to be in company and to have fun; friendship is accepted and enjoyed regularly.

However, the convenience and ease of access to such a relationship ends up

demeaning and sub-powering a relationship like this. Friendship in the true sense can be extremely influential. Our need for reliability, trust and care can be extended and fulfilled with an honest friendship. True friendship can provide us with far more comfort and confidence than a family does.

But it’s a pity that most of us fail to cherish and take care of it the way we need to. The indispensability of a good relationship is not feared in this particular one.
