A rolling stone gathers no moss! Can this be true for relationships too? If you take a relationship for granted and do not try to reinvent it, chances are the relationship becomes stagnant with a thick layer of moss. And there comes a point, when this moss forms a profuse dense web around your relationship and exiting this moss becomes next to impossible.
How will you explain, two people madly in love getting married and then getting divorced within a year? I fail to understand how two individuals can come to a stage where they just can’t stand each other when at one point they were madly in love. Isn’t love supposed to be enough to build your relationship palaces? Or does the mundane suck the love out of life?
I spend more time at work with my colleague than at home with my husband. Is that an excuse to have an extra marital affair? Are we so weak that we get carried away so easily? Relationships have become so hollow today that finding that strong foundation is becoming a herculean task.
And when relationships are falling apart, no one wants to be the bigger person and make things better. We are wrapped so much in our ‘false sense’ of individuality that we do not want to come upfront and say sorry. The blame games and the pointing fingers is what is left.
My intention is not to point fingers at anyone, but in general our generation is facing huge problems with relationships. Relationships are deteriorating at every corner and it is treated as absolutely normal by all of us! Is this where we are heading to – a place where bonds are not lifelong but temporary and flipping out of relationships is the new ritual?
So many stories of broken hearts I hear each passing day and it makes me question the sanctity of relationships today.
Maybe we need to give an extra effort to relationships to create strong bonding and unwavering trust in our ties! Maybe we need to go the old fashioned way to talk it out to find a middle way! Maybe we need to sit and ponder how to rejuvenate stale relationships. Maybe we need to walk in parks holding each other’s hands. Maybe we just need to fool around sometimes. Maybe we just need to keep aside our mobiles and talk. Maybe we just need to hug the other person and say you love them!
