Got relationships? Most of us are surrounded by people every day but do you have at least a couple of people with whom you have a relationship?
It’s been a well-known fact that people who have a healthy support system of relationships with other people are happier, less stressed and are better able to handle the challenges of life.
Why is that? As humans, we are designed to be in relationship: it’s just the way we were created. It is a fact that relationships are also found consistently throughout the animal kingdom. Living creatures need each other for support and survival.
In our modern day society, one of the greatest impediments to maintaining healthy relationships is the lack of time, or more accurately, not making the time to create, nurture and grow them.
Don’t get so busy that you forget to take time for your relationships. As the old adage goes, no one on their death bed has ever wished they’d spent more time working!
