Relationship Management

“You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.” – Frederick Buechner

At the heart of life lie the relationships we have with other people. How you handle these relationships has a significant impact on your happiness and that of the people involved.

Are you complaining about your relationships? Methinks it’s time you assess how you’re handling it.

You can turn that complain to an advantage when you realise that what irritates you about others can lead you to an understanding of yourself.


Treasure Your Relationships!
Did you know? – Studies show that women are attracted to men in blue.


  1. When one discovers what irritates one, I guess it’s an advantage ‘cos you get to know more about yourself but does it guarantee you continuing in the relationship? Like when one is pissed off already. One can still be friends to the person though but cut off the relationship a bit right?

    • Remaining in the relationship or otherwise depends on many other factors, such as the nature of the relationship, stage of the relationship, etc. Whatever decision you reach about the future of the relationship, one sure gain is to use it to understand yourself better. And yes, like you rightly mentioned, remain friends even when you opt-out. In that case, you hold no grudge or hatred: you simply have removed yourself from a position of further hurt.

  2. You can’t determine who is your relative but you can choose who your friend is.
    If you want to be loved you must learn how to love others.
    So, value your relationship.

  3. It’s doesn’t mean because you learnt something you need to keep it. It could mean you learnt that you have little in common or the person doesn’t respect or talk right to you. Everything isn’t so black and white. It doesn’t have to be your fault. Sometimes you do grow apart from a relationship or it isn’t healthy for you.

  4. One should think very we’ll before building a relationship, otherwise, one can find him/herself in a perpetual unhappiness. Methink that, like you rightly said, the love one shares in a very strong relationship cannot be totally extinguished but can only diminish to that of an ordinary friendship.
    Hence, in our relationship we should always treat our partner the way we want him/her to treat us.
