Humans are creatures of relationships. Without supportive and loving others around us, the human mind cannot survive long. Neonates maladapt in the absence of emotionally attuned and available primary care-givers. Likewise, adults can fall apart when the most important relationships in their world become irreparable. It’s been said that almost all psychiatric/psychological disorders began as a relationship problem; be it the love totally withheld, conditionally given or a substitute relationship with addictive substances, such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, and so on.
The quality of your close relationships decides your mental wellness or stress. In fact, relationship is thought to account for over 80% of our happiness in life. According to the Pareto principle, 20% of your most important relationships in life accounts for 80% of your happiness; while 80% of your problems will be linked to 20% of the most difficult people in the circle of your relationships. Of course, not everybody is bad and even great relationships can go through patches of connection-rupture. Humans are fallible and therefore can fall out of an important relationship that is meant to be evergreen, ever-relevant and ever-supportive.
