This way you are actually distancing yourself and will eventually lose people in your life.
What is ‘Life’ to you? Is it about enjoying and experiencing every breath that you take? Is it about getting to take pleasure out of the tiniest thing possible?
Is it about exploring the different possibilities? Or is it about becoming so successful that your face is the most popular face in the world?
Imagine a phase of life in which you have all the luxury that you can ask for and there is nobody better than you. What would you do with that honor if you do not have anybody in life to share your success with?
Of course, there will be the paparazzi who would woo you as the best person in the entire world.
However, have you ever wondered how those paparazzi would react if you lose your fame or how many of your fans would take up your responsibility if, out of the blue, you are reduced to a commoner? Hardly anybody, right?
This is the reason why it is so important and necessary to have someone in life with whom you can share your ups and downs.
I am not talking about being in love with your boyfriend when I say these words. In fact, I am referring to all the valuable people in your life – your parents, your grandparents, your siblings, your cousins, your friends and much more.
How would you feel if, one fine day, they decide to give you a cold shoulder?
Would you no feel hurt and devastated because you don’t deserve to be ill-treated?
However, would you, at all, care to analyze what had made your loved ones leave you alone?
Quite often, you do not realize that being in a relationship is not just about being loved unconditionally. In fact, a relationship is like a sapling.
You have to nurture it with love and care, and, the day you stop caring for it, it will cease to live. Similarly, in a relationship, you have to understand that each of you is equally important.
So, you cannot impose your decisions on your partner and prove your might. In fact, if you do so, you will make one of the worst mistakes in life.
Being in a relationship requires you to understand the person in front of you. You may not know everything about that person, but, you must know that your loved one does not like to be neglected or looked down upon.
Conflicts are bound to occur in a relationship. However, that does not give you the right to criticize the person before you.
You must understand that you have to treat your loved ones the way you want to be treated yourself. You cannot take them for granted.
They are one of the essential people in your life who would hold your hand no matter how ugly you look or how unsuccessful you become as a person.
They will constantly motivate you and give you the courage that you desperately crave for in the crucial moments of your life.
Thus, you have to understand how significant and caring they are and, thus, treat them the same way as they treat you.
Being in a relationship is about learning to sacrifice and compromise. When you are in a relationship, it does not matter how egoistic you can be.
What really matters is how selfless you can be. If you are selfless, your partner will automatically care for you so much that you will feel like you’re the luckiest person in the entire world.
That feeling of pure love and understanding can only arise if you learn to live for the others instead of living for yourself. If you have made a mistake, you have to learn to apologize for the same.
You cannot expect your partner to say sorry to you every single time only because he or she is in love with you, right? You have to own up your fault!
Saying sorry to your partner when you have done something wrong won’t make you inferior. In fact, if you apologize from the bottom of your heart for having committed a mistake, your bond will strengthen even more and you will become true companions for life.
