In any relationship, romantic, platonic, familial, whatever it doesn’t matter; what does matter is that you spend quality time together. There is a difference between being in the same room with someone and spending quality time together. Why do people enjoy going on vacations? I think this is because this is when they actually engage with others. I think life is about making memories with other people. Whenever you get together with family or friends that you haven’t seen in a while, how often is it does someone start a sentence with “Remember when?”
If you look back at your happiest moments in life was it while being alone or was it when you were with others? I think we were meant to interact with each other but we’re a part of a society now where we now have the mindset that we should be careful. Who is going to screw us over today? Who is going to abuse our kindness? Why is he looking at me, is he going to mug me? I mean, seriously how many times do these type of thoughts enter our minds?
I know that bad things happen and there are bad people out there but I honestly believe that everyone are out there striving for something. No it’s not money. It’s happiness. I don’t know anyone better to give me a sense of joy other than my family and friends. I just hope that I provide the same thing for them in return.
