I come home tired. My daughter makes me a fresh lime juice to cool me. While she reciprocates my love, I smile at her. But some people think, she has done her duty well or probably learnt her lessons well.
I’ve been bound to believe from very young age, that there needs to be a reciprocating factor, for relationships to survive.
I’ll be sincerely calling someone to know how they are doing, because I care for them. But over a period of time, if I come to realize that there has been no initiative from the other person’s side to call me and show that they care, then my frequency of calling will certainly reduce.
I do agree that the other person need not feel the same way like me. And thats exactly what I am trying to tell – Reciprocation is essential for relationships to grow and survive.
There are many people around us, who are cordial acquaintances, while others are classified as friends. And then there are special friends, best friends and many more…..How does all these classifications happen ????
Its totally based on what you feel about somebody and if the same feeling is being reciprocated towards you.
The sad part is, when you are duty bound to maintain some relationships, but have no great fondness to nurture that relationship. Those are the difficult times, when you are torn between what you believe in and what the situation demands of you.
Its very easy to say, just ignore those relationships which don’t matter to you. But in this game of life, its extremely difficult to take such a stance !!! Or at least I find it so very difficult, in some instances.
And between partners in life, reciprocation of love is the most important factor that sustains their relationship.
So, what do you think ???? Is reciprocation of love important to you or not ????
