Cobweb of Human Relationships – #BarAThon Day 2

Have you ever wondered about the complexity of human relationships?

Have you ever tried to look at a relationship from above the ground?

Such complex confusingly woven web it is.

What’s that one important factor that can help (to a large extent) save/mend complex human relationships?

Relationships are like cobwebs. Tightly woven with delicate strings. A slight push by an external force or a wind from the wrong direction can disturb the balance. Many a times, quite a few strings get broken midway through the journey. The people involved have to be extra careful and equally concerned to keep the strings attached.

Once broken, some of the ties can be mended with efforts from both the parties. But if only one side keeps trying to mend the broken ties, the knot will only get thicker and thicker. Thus obstructing transparency and increasing the load towards one direction. Such relationships finally break beyond repair creating a huge wall that even the wheels of time aren’t able to break. The worst part is that they affect other healthy relationships too.

If two individuals are bound to be present in a relationship, there will be differences, repentance, regrets and the likes. And we have seen people breaking the bridge of communication to avoid further regrets. This I believe is the biggest mistake we all make. Do anything. Fight. Accuse. Abuse. Do whatever. But do apologise. Do forgive. And never ever stop communicating.

The moment you stop communicating, there’s no point in faking a relationship. It’s over. Accept it. Or else, the old wounds will keep stealing and scavenging on the relationship. Talk it out. Maybe there’s something you both aren’t aware of. Something that you’ve been missing. What you don’t know is mostly the reason behind fall outs. Communication, open and transparent, might help recognise these negative triggers and isolating them. Thus saving a relationship from a disastrous end.

  1. I second you on the belief about communication. And I also can’t seem to stress enough on the right communication, as a lot of people confuse accusations as communication too 🙂

  2. Very well said, Rekha!

    Communication helps a relationship to flourish. Some people find it very difficult to say a sorry even when they are wrong. It takes courage to say a sorry, but a sorry can put things right. It makes you feel important, when someone says a sorry, that the relationship is equally important for that person.

  3. Oh yes transparent communication is the key to a good relationship. Sometimes when I see films and there are these characters turing one person against the other I wonder why people don’t talk to each other and clarify rather than believing the worst of their loved ones.

  4. Communication is the key to a successful relationship as you’ve rightly said. If two people don’t communicate it is the end of the journey for them.

  5. absolutely…this holds true for everyone and for every kind of relationship..assuming things and not communicating is always the reason for broken relationships. great piece.

  6. Totally related to your post. At times, I wonder why so many misunderstandings come into picture between 2 individuals in any relationship. Communication is definitely a key-factor and when 2 people don’t work on it collectively, the relationship dies an early demise. Well-written!
