Relationships....

Relationships are so hard to understand... Sometimes a very simple straightforward relationship may seem much more complex to others... Sometimes we get torn between two people, not knowing whom to be spend more time with... We miss both of them equally... And hate to call quits to anyone of them... It could be a husband sandwiched between his mother and wife... It could be a friend whose two of his best friends are staunch enemies to each other...

Friendship is a relationship that includes a wide and varied range of feelings. We do not know the invisible line that divides friendship from love... Many of us may keep jumping across the line and not feel the pain it leaves once they cross the border to the otherside of the line... 'Don't give any name to our relationship,' they say... But are they atleast clear on what kind of feelings the two feel for each other? Alas! Our closest friend may be the most unfit one to fall in love with and at the same time a lover can never be a close friend! Lucky is the person whose love and friend are one and the same and luckier are those who get undivided attention from their spouse...!

What happens when we are at the receiving end of a relationship? We are left with no choice but to show a blind eye or a deaf ear and pretend as though everything is fine... What else can be done? We would not want to lose the relationship, do we?

All the love in the world does not seem enough when we do not get enough attention from the person who means the world to us... Our whole life seems to revolve around this single person... Whatever we do is directly or indirectly for this person... We are even ready to do things that may hurt us the most, to see that happiness and glow on the special one's face...

Is this pain, love? Or may be it's a combination of madness and obsession...

true! maybe thats love and I feel, we need to have that kind of love only towards God. not towards any human. We need to strive to make God happy and in turn everything in this world wil become beautiful and nice

Hmm.. You are right Renu... But inspite of ourselves, we start loving our closed ones in this manner and it does hurt a lot when it does not get reciprocated!
