Cords of Love and Trust

September 11, 2017

"Man is a social being", said Aristotle, the famous Greek philosopher. And every social being requires society as his/her prime support and every society consists of people both good and bad, issues both pleasant and unpleasant and bonds both healthy and unhealthy. But at the outset every soul on the earth needs his society to uphold him, make him think, let him live, share his heart, cry out his eyes and knock senses into his head.

The society is a vast concept that comprises of various things. In fact the society is a 'web of social relations' as said by Max Weber. Social relations as of such include relationships that are held by love, trust, friendship and sometimes even for one’s own good and not for any particular good reason. A relationship is something that enhances a man’s social living condition. As stated earlier it makes a man think and lets him live. Any relation to the matter makes a man from independent to interdependent, selfish to caring, sympathising to empathising, spending time to finding time for another. Besides, a relationship has much more to do in the life of man.

No man on this earth would ever remain happy to the highest peak all by himself, trusting in his own thoughts and living in his own compact world. The first step into any relationship breaks off the boundaries that held your compact world. It expands our vision of the world, lets us out into the clutches of life, exposing us to a whole new experience completely unknown to us. Being in touch with people around is not a sign of dependence. It is but the start of new experiences, bonds, love and trust.

While in this journey of life we meet new people, we learn new things each time approaching closer to the exit of our cocoon of compression. A relationship can vary widely. Relations can begin between friends, younger ones, parents, teachers, brothers, sisters and more. Unless we let ourselves out into the mainstream of life the sweetness of love and trust can never be discovered.

With the passing of time every relationship develops. It steps from mere friendship to a bond of hearts; passtime chatters to irresistible urge to converse, urgency texts to texting-to-feel-closer and more. There is an unknown power that lies in relationships. It starts casually but ends up with strong ties of love and trust. In fact it sprouts out unintentionally. It happens with the meeting of people and to fulfil the need of the moment but it ends up in different ways.

The world is a vast admixture of meeting people, losing people, falling in love, failing in love, parting away from people and more. Our life on the earth is more like a "Holiday Abroad” wherein we meet people and later have to part coz we have to return back to our native lands, the "Dust”. While in this wilderness of life, though we meet many millions of people, some touch our hearts, some leave behind a mark on our life, some people are worth trusting, some are worth being loved, some people make a place for themselves in our hearts without us realizing it.This is the reality of life.

Moreover 'Cords of all Relationships' between people are kept strong through love and trust. They are two of the most important factors that hold humanity, that hold people on the earth. This bond has beauty, peculiarity and great uniqueness. A mere relationship gradually develops into impartible bonds. As time passes by this bond grows. It all starts from a tender seed, growing all the way into a huge tree, unshakable in flood or storm. These cords of love and trust keeps people unto death, it brings unconditional strength and faith. In fact love and trust in any relation is not planned, it isn’t decided or planted, it is let to grow, and it is let out by itself to have its own way in the air.

True friendship and bonds last for ever when people trust and love each other. They gradually trust each other in storm or wind, pain or joy, calamity or great rejoicing. They are kept by the cords that will never break. And even when they are broken they can always be mended through oneness of the heart and understanding of minds.

"Cords of Love and Trust' binds together hearts, stitches together minds and flourishes the spirit like nothing else in the world. Every relationship would have failures, uncertainties, pain, sorrow and squabbles but at the end of every beautiful story they are kept together if people trust each other undoubtedly, love each other unconditionally and make up with each other momentarily. Real magic in every relationship is when people value their relationship above all the obstacles that come on the way to collapse the hard built tower of 'Love and Trust'.

    Well written and narrated. Mostly short sentence and meaningful. You have the skill and talent to be a good writer and keep it up.

    Please avoid words like '"coz", which are like slang words and at times lowers the quality of excellence in writing. Also, using AND word to begin a sentence, means continuing the thoughts from previous sentence, which can be minimized and avoided using thought connectors.

    A sentence more than 18 to 20 words, as in last paragraph, you may loose the reader and not able keep with your intended thoughts.

    Looking forward to read from you, relationship within siblings and how it is working in 2017.
