The Relay-tionship!

“A relationship’s real value manifests not in what it is to you, but in…what it does to you.”                     


When it comes to long-term relationship, rather than choosing someone who can give love to your heart, choose someone who can give ‘balance’ to your life.

The logic is a pretty simple one. Lasting happiness doesn’t come in the form of excitement; it comes in the form of equilibrium. That’s why, it is better to be with someone who can ‘anchor’ you, and give you deep roots to hold the structure of your life.

And yes, then it is important for you to play the same role in the other person’s life. Well! Such mutuality creates a synergy that helps both the persons grow. And then rather than being a high-maintenance machine, the relationship actually becomes the mechanic of your life.


Oh! But remember, the mechanic does ask for service charges 🙂
