Watched this video recently and it got me thinking. Not talking about the video though.
I took to friends and asked a question, what’s a relationship?
Someone with whom you share a connection, an understanding, interest, and so on.
It’s not news that society has taught us to be sort of conscious to our need of people and little do we bother about their need of us. We respond to people based on how they treat us.
Note that am not trying to undermine the fact that we do our best for people and sometimes run out of patience with their irregularities, but answer me.
How many times have you grown weary of your siblings and still not ended the relationship you share with them?
So maybe next time if someone asks for your opinion on what relationship is, think home, think family, think self. Our mere existence proves that we weren’t created to exist in isolation. You have to choose who you walk or work with and you have to choose right.
Its a relationship, friends, dating, colleagues, classmates and so on. You just have to place people in order of preference or value and ensure you take responsibility for how your treated and how you treat others.
The first relationship you cultivate is with yourself, you can never give (emphasis on GIVE) What you’re not and what you don’t have. So have about I ask you this, what is a relationship?
