In your daily life you will meet different kind of people. Some will become your friends for life and a couple of many others you might never meet again. There are some you will regret not taking down their details for they created an impact in your life for the first time and now they are gone. As we go through life, we will meet a variety of people and will build relationships with them. Some of these relationships will be good and beneficial while some others will be bad and toxic.
Relationship is not just about dating, love making and having fun. It is powerful and unique. It involves lots of sacrifice. From the moment we are born into the world we all crave for relationship. We all feel the need to be connected to people in one way or the other.
Some relationships are healthy and others are not. Naturally the first relationships we have are with our parents. They care and nurture us. We learn so much from them. We learn good and bad depending upon their beliefs and morals. As we grow older we develop friendships – both platonic and romantic. Many of us become parents ourselves. We continue to learn from every person we develop a relationship with.
Relationships are very important in life. Healthy relationships are a vital component of health and wellbeing. There is compelling evidence that strong relationships contribute to a long, healthy, and happy life. Conversely, the health risks from being alone or isolated in one’s life are comparable to the risks associated with cigarette smoking, blood pressure, and obesity. Loneliness has long been commonly associated with depression, and now research is backing this correlation up: a 2012 study of breast cancer patients found that those with fewer satisfying social connections experienced higher levels of depression, pain, and fatigue.
As human we have the desire and the need to connect to other people and we can only do this through some kind of relationship. The connection is the relationship. The kind of connection gives it the kind of relationship. No matter how tough we all are, we are humans in the first instance and as humans we need to feel love and acceptance. This gives us the urge to connect to the right kind of people that will make us feel this way. There are people we know and they are categorised under the group call acquaintances. We might hang out with them some times, but their lives don’t really intertwine with ours. They’re usually not our first choice to go to dinner with. Their life struggles don’t personally affect us in any way.
You become like the people you spend more time with. This is why it is very important to be careful when choosing the people you hang around with. People are very important in your life. They play a significant role in your advancement and fulfilment. People also play important role in your life when you fail. Life is all about people and how we relate with them. Successful companies understand the need to have a healthy relationship with their customers either through their services, products, communication, pricing, delivery and maybe all of what they do and how they do it.
Relationship makes us to learn to share. We learn team-work. We develop likes and dislikes. We also tend to gravitate towards people we look up to. This could also be people we fear. Truth is no man is a failure who has friends. With friends and people by our side we can achieve anything. It’s important that we build strong relationships with those we love. They are the ones that matter the most to us. We should always treat them as such. Never take them for granted.
Relationship is about value. You need to understand that the people you relate with has certain values and you respect these values in them because this is what makes them unique. In your relationship you need to value the unique aspect of each individual. Can you imagine how boring life would be if we were all the same? You need to treat everybody with respect. Accept people where they are. Allow them to make their own choices in life. Remember you can’t change anyone but yourself so concentrate on being the best person and the best friend you can be – and you’ll have no problem establishing and retaining real long lasting relationships.
For you to have a good or healthy relationship with anyone you need to understand the human behavioural pattern. In life we are all meant to be human resource managers because we deal with people on a daily bases. Basic people skill is about being nice, friendly and interesting. In life people have so much they can offer you and until you relate with them you will never find out. It is important for you to value people and not to write them off in the first instance.
The reason most people fail to understand human behaviour correctly is that they look at their behaviour without taking other variables into consideration. When trying to understand human behaviour don’t ever examine a single item without examining all the items in the system. The biggest danger we have is the misconception of first impression. Your first impression of someone can really be a misconception. You are only seeing one aspect of their life that could not be theirs because you don’t know at the time what they are going through.
One of the things that make life so fulfilling, is the people we encounter and build relationships with along the way. Any sort of relationship, from a simple chat with our daily mail carrier – to the first meeting of our future spouse, can give us either a moment or a lifetime of happiness. Having the right people in our lives is healthy but there are some relationships that are not and we need to cut these kinds of people out of our lives. The problem is that many people are unaware of their ability to cut these people out of their lives. It’s easy to get comfortable, develop attachments, and really not see the damage that their negativity is doing to your life. The wrong people will make you question what you, yourself, are capable of. It’s important to realize the weight they can put on your shoulders, and that these feelings are not coming from within.
The right people will motivate you to become the absolute best version of yourself, without changing who you really are…just by being around you. The right people will be pursuing their own dreams and therefore believe it is possible – so they will encourage you to follow your own; even if they don’t have to say anything to do it. The right people will be standing next to you not only on the sunny days, but also on the rainy days. In fact, they’ll be the ones holding the umbrella over you. Your ability to create the most positive, powerful legacy possible will have much to do with the people you chose to surround yourself with on a daily basis. Choose wisely.
