In my previous Relationships posts #1 – 9,  I indicated that during my wanderings through the internet, I’d come across a lot of statements and quotes about relationships. So it time to share some more of my favourites:

  1. In human relationships, distance is not measured in miles but in affection. Two people can be right next to each other, yet miles apart. So stay in touch with those who truly matter to you. Not because it’s convenient, but because they’re worth the extra effort.
  2. No road is long with good company ~ Turkish proverb
  3. Sometimes, we need a few people in our lives who will calmly call our bluff. ~ Dr. SunWolf
  4. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Don’t expect others to read your mind, and don’t play games with their heads and hearts. Don’t tell half-truths and expect people to trust you when the full truth comes out. Half-truths are no better than lies. And don’t ignore someone you care about, because lack of concern hurts more than angry words 
  5. Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you. They are not perfect but are always perfect for you. ~Author unknown
  6. People change and forget to tell each other. ~Lillian Hellman
  7. We are, many of us, a planet orbiting somebody’s sun, unconscious of a lonely moon, orbiting our planet. ~Robert Brault
  8. How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. ~From the movie Annie
  9. Indifference and neglect often do much more damage than outright dislike. ~ J.K. Rowling
  10. One of my main regrets in life is giving considerable thought to inconsiderate people ~ Jarod Kintz

My personal favourite is #10 – why? probably because I think every single one of us can probably think of times when we’ve tried to help/assist someone who gives no consideration to other peoples’ feelings or possessions.

I hope you never take your closest relationships for granted as suddenly finding these people no longer in your life one day will cause you heartache and pain, so look after your relationships by telling those you love just how much they mean to you.
