Breakfast Babble: ED’s own little space on the interwebs where we gather to discuss ideas and get pumped up for the day. We judge things too. Sometimes. Always. Whatever, call it catharsis and join in people.
Relationships are beautiful. Be it a relationship between a mother and a son, a father and a daughter, mother and daughter, father and son, brother and sisters, with other relatives, friends, boyfriend and girlfriend.
Blood relationships come with an attached meaning as soon as a child is born. He/she knows who his/her mother, father, uncle, aunt, brother, and sister are. But, besides these relationships of family, a human being chooses his own family of friends and lovers.
From a very young age, we are taught to make friends and play together with other children and bond with them. However, it isn’t necessary that we or they might consider us as their “friend”. What if they might just enjoy our company, and not our behaviors, attitudes, or personalities in general?
After a certain age, we start developing an attraction and love for people from opposite or similar gender. For instance, a girl may develop a feeling for a boy in her school or a girl in her locality. Or, a boy might have feelings for a boy in his neighborhood or a girl in school. The two might interact and have fun together but does this straightaway mean that they want to be our girlfriend/boyfriend or spend their entire lives with us?
The answer to both the questions is simply that we must focus on the partnership and the bond we have with another person instead of worrying about the name we want to give the relationship.
For example, a guy has a good time with a girl in his class. So, it is essential and far more important that both of them should focus on the relationship and the bond they share.
Now you may ask why. It is because, in my opinion, relationships are very fragile. A slight mistake can lead to separation, especially in a new relationship. Let’s take the above-mentioned example once again. It can be a possibility that the guy wants to be the girl’s boyfriend, but the girl thinks of him as her friend, and nothing more than that. In such a case, naming the relationship can be crucial.
Thus, it is important for people to focus on their relationships and enjoy the moment. Be involved with the other person, listen to what they feel, get to know them, and laugh and cry with them. But, don’t worry about the future or rush on giving the relationship a name. Because many times, both might feel that okay we are together so let’s be boyfriend-girlfriend, but the relationship doesn’t work because there might be several gaps in the relationship.
Hence, it is essential to live in the moment and make the most out of it. Of course, at a later stage, you feel like giving it a name, like “marriage”, which is also important but don’t rush things. Take it slow, evaluate, vigilantly think, and then consider taking the relationship forward and giving it a name. Because marrying your best friend is a thousand times greater than marrying a stranger you know nothing about.
