Balance Your Relationship with Your Friendships

Everyone is in pursuit of a true soul mate, the person with whom you feel you are complete and with whom your time passes quickly. Charles Dickens has said “A man is lucky if he is the first love of a woman. A woman is lucky if she is the last love of a man.” But in today’s world, if you are able to find a true companion (not necessarily your life partner) in this journey of life, you can consider yourself lucky, no matter at what stage.

New found love is ok, but friends are there forever

In today’s liberal society, it is only practical to try dating to find someone special.  While you devote most of your time, energy and money towards dating and romancing, you may often ignore your old friends or take them for granted. It might not be an intentional move on your part, but it’s more than likely that you’ve become too busy in your new found relationship and tend to overlook everything else.

Relationships can fail, true friendships can’t 

Many times it may happen that due to one reason or another, a relationship doesn’t last long and you are left with a broken heart. These cold and hard times make you realize that you already had not one but many soul mates – yes your good old friends. The same friends who were with you in the school, in the college and may be at your work place, who used to bring a cone of ice cream during your breakups, take you to a mall for a shopping spree or just used to sit and gossip so that you can feel better.

 Relationship or Friendship – Which one to choose

Well, both are important. Your soul mate invigorates your private moments, while your friends enliven your personal life. There is a necessity to maintain a balance between the two. It is never too late; if you feel, you are lagging behind somewhere and losing your old circle, it’s high time to take action to refurbish your missing links.

To maintain perfect a lifestyle and healthy relationships, it is important that you shouldn’t forget your special friends in your happier times. They were with you through thick and thin. Remember this gratitude and try to return them your favor.



           Here are some of the tips to make sure your friends always remain closer to you:

*Make a time plan – Take some time out of your busy schedule and mark a date only for them. Spend some quality time. 

*Respect special occasions – Make them feel special on their birthdays or anniversaries. Give them a special gift that only you can give.

*Plan a get together and make sure to include everything special. Have food, drinks and talk. This will only develop your already existing mutual understanding,

*Most importantly, be with them in their tough times. Your support and empathy will be their biggest help.

Don’t forget them even when you are happy and in love, for the reason that in a way many of your happier moments are because of them.
