People who are connected, seem to have the best of their conversations even when they don’t speak a word.. Yet it is so important to be expressive and let the other person know how much they mean to you. Where do we draw the line then ? How to differentiate if your concern is perceived as care or an invasion to privacy ? How would you figure out if your small acts of expressing your love are equally delightful on both sides ?
It is an eternal truth that the perception of things and events that keep on happening around us is always unique to every individual. It is shaped to one’s own thought process which is often a subset to the complete meaning of the subject. And it is by this virtue of humans, that we also understand emotions differently. The feeling of belonging to someone neither arises out of the same reasons nor has the same effect across individuals. Yet loneliness is so common to all of us. And we put our own humble efforts to get out of it, often by leaning on to the nearest available shoulder, preferably of the opposite sex.
As humans and social animals, there is always a deep urge of association that resides in us passively, To get paired with a soul around is probably the only aim of more than half of the wild sacred hearts around us. And with the modernization of things , both inside and outside of our brains, there is a great degree of pressure also that we get exposed to. The pressure of being single ..and to add to it , the memories of a broken relationship. I guess, its just human to keep falling in love again and again.
Is it just luck that couples stay together for more than a decade and then get married and stay together for a few more decades. Or is it just that, they have a better understanding of the relation and their conduct to it ? I personally, would go with the latter thought, because love is a language spoken differently by different people. And its just quite practical that you don’t understand the language at first, but you do later on with effort..
I am often bugged by this question, and I would leave with the same bug… Should you do something for your partner, because its something you expect him to for you or because its something that you want to do for him ?
