From soulmates to…

Many couples start out as soul-mates and eventually end up becoming more like… room-mates!                    


At the start, every relationship seems to possess a spark that is hard to define…some sort of a ‘magic’. However, if you look closely, that magic is combination of two factors – the ‘connect’ that the two persons share, and the unique set of ‘circumstances’ they find themselves in. Now, naturally, the circumstances change over a period of time, and thus then onward the relationship heavily depends on the ‘connect’ between the two persons.

Sadly, this connect is hard to retain, and even harder to regain if lost. And without that connect, persons get pulled apart, and the ‘strain’ is palpable.

However, it is worth every effort to regain that connect, because that’s what provides the most important nourishment for a fulfilling life. And the good news is that the ingredients which are needed to regain that connect are quite simple – spending time with each other, giving undivided attention, seeing each other’s positives, bringing back the innocence to trust each other, and showing care & concern. Yup! That’s all it takes.


Well! But here comes the bad news… “As people grow up, they become so complex that for them, doing simple things is no more easy”.
