Not All Relationships Are Meant to Last Forever

The term “relationship” is quite misunderstood by a lot of people around the world. When people hear this term, they instantly consider it to be a romantic relationship with one’s partner. But honestly, this is not always the case! A relationship is a relatively broader term and it can be used to address a special bond that you share with your friends, siblings, colleagues, and even neighbors.
In a world, where people constantly try to please others just for the sake of maintaining their bond, it is not always necessary that the other person will respect your efforts and stay there for you when you need them the most. What if the same happens to you? You spend years trying to save a relationship but in the end, every single effort goes in vain. What will you do? Being depressed and heartbroken are the only choices left with people under such a circumstance. But is it worth all the pain? Definitely NOT! Let me tell you, it is completely OK to let go. No one is going to stay with you forever either way.
If you had a really large group of friends during your school days that have eventually shrunk to a maximum of 2 or 3 group members, then it is completely fine. You must have noticed that when people separate and get engaged in their official work life in different cities, the bond eventually tends to weaken. They start getting close to people with whom they are interacting one-on-one on a daily basis i.e. their office colleagues. You should never feel bad if a relationship gets broken due to distance because if a relationship would have been strong enough the case of “letting go” wouldn’t have aroused.
Similar is the case with any other relation. Even if you had a so-called “unbreakable bond” with your neighbor that eventually became a part of your family, there is no assurance that this bond will remain intact forever. A lot of people will love you according to their needs. Many will establish a relationship with you in order to gain some benefit out of it and some may also intend to hurt you emotionally. These kinds of relationships are best to be broken and it is completely fine if such bonds come to an end. Not every relationship is meant to last forever, so instead of sobbing in a corner just get up and accept the fact that letting go of some relationships is best for a bright future.

It is impossible to cultivate too many deep friendships at once. It’s easier during school days, but after we leave daily contact and move into new circles where we meet new people we see daily, we need to choose which relationships mean the most and cultivate those — old or new. I’m only in touch with a couple of my closest friends from high school now and only a handful of college friends – including the one I married. As we move away from old friends and grow into new ones, some of the loosest old bonds no longer make sense to expend energy on maintaining. Once people have families, a lot of the time and energy they used to maintain casual friendships has to be invested in family instead. My time goes into the people who have been closest to my heart — the friends who have always been there for me in every sense. I want to be there for them when they need me.

I totally agree with you, Barbara. Even I am in touch with only a few of my friends for years now. It is better to have and maintain a few meaningful relationships instead of piling up a dozen meaningless relations.
