Do you think that relationship is more important than accomplishment in life? for me, i would say so cause relationship to me is more important than any material things on earth. It is so hard to keep a good relationship to anyone so i would consider it as an accomplishment also. Having a relationship with somebody that really means to you cannot be replaced by just anything. Once you lose that relationship it's so hard to bring it back again. Having an accomplishment in life is important too but my 1st priority would be the relationship over any accomplishment in career or life. What would be more important to you? Relationship or Accomplishment?

I guess it depends on what a person considers an 'accomplishment'. To accomplish something doesn't always mean meeting a materialistic goal. For me, falling in love and being in a relationship certainly is an accomplishment, but I won't let my other dreams and desires fade away just because of my love-life. I still plan to achieve the things in life that I want to - even if it is just finishing a project such as a painting or poem.

I think having a relationship can be an important accomplishment if you have a good mate and you are happy.I know it can be hard being single and trying to accomplish things being single and feeling fulfilled.You should still try to work on personal goals that you have set for yourself.

So I guess that proves the old adage that it's not what you know but who you know. Just Kidding I agree that relationships are extremely important, but it does not minimize your accomplishments. Relationships can come and go, some will be around for most of not all of your life. But your accomplishments are always there. Once you've done something they can't take it away from you.

i second you brothertuc. i just hope that your partner, if he really loves you, he would somehow see that your accomplishments in life, individually, is as much as important as your relationship.

Yes I agree that relationship is more important than accomplishments cause its hard to have a good relationship with someone.Just imagine your relationship to your family, I think it's an accomplishment having a good relationship Your accomplishments may let you fell very good but with a good relationship you can feel that life in this world is worth living....:)

Both of them are important. You need to maintain relationship with your best friends and other people who are care about you. But there are some people whom you can't maintain the relationship with. People who are used to bully others or people who are selfish & arrogant and don't want to understand both you and others are not worthy to maintain relationship with them. Accomplishment is yours -- no matter where and when, it will still be intact with you. But to achieve it, you have to consider and maintain your relationship with people who are considered "worthy" to be pursued as mentioned above.

Im not sure that I know what you are asking. But the way I see it is people have dreams when they are kids. They want to be this or that. Well if they get there I would call it an accomplishment. But maybe they fall in love along the way. Now let's pretend we are in a perfeft world where everyone meets their soulmate. So the two people fall in love and start trying to make the other peoples dreams come true because they want them to be happy. Then they have kids adn they try to make their dreams come true. Well now there are no regrets because even tho you may not be exactly where you thought you would be as a kid you are happy because you have spent time loving and caring about someone else. and you have had someone doing the same towards you. Well that is what i think, a good relationship is an accomplishment. Plus when you have that support who says you can't have a great career, a great marriage, and 5 -6 kids??? Hope I answered your question.

i'm sorry the question is not clear to you but what the topic all about is what would you choose as more important to you, relationship or accomplishment? Just pick what's really important to you and what you really prioritize over the other, it doesn't mean you have to give up on something.

this is true, accoplishment will always fade away when something better replaced what you've done, but your relationship will always stay when everyone leaves you behind even when your fame fades away. When you're about to die, are you going to request to see your trophies and plaques? no right? you will still want to see those whom you value and also valued your existence..
