Beyond the basics of food and shelter every other human need is social, satisfied only through relationships with others, and the more genuine those relationships the deeper the satisfaction. That is why families are created, friendships are made, and communities are formed. And that is also why in almost every circumstance of life, when all else is equal, relationships are the ultimate tie-breakers.

Hi jeanniemay! I do agree that relationships can give us great satisfaction especially when it is genuine and true. With all the trials and failures one has gone through one way or the other, a relationship that is successful can always bring us up when we are down on our knees. To be honest with you, I hold on to my relationships very dearly, it is very important to me that it is somehow smooth sailing. My relationships with hubby, family and friends are what makes life really satisfying. It gives you home and it gives you security. Of course, I won't deny the fact that we need the basics too in order to live a good life but like you said and I completely agree with you, that relationships in its full context and meaning makes life more bearable and more satisfying. Just my thoughts dear friend! Take care and have a nice day!

Yes relationships are the foundation of almost everything, Confucius did say the family was the basis and corner stone of society. But I still follow the theory of Abraham Maslow, that there is the pyramid structure and self actualization; the idea of being the best that we can be is on top and is a personal not social function.

My friendship with my best friend nelda has been a life saver for me as I was so depressed after I was summarily let go for being eighty and still working at the library. I just did not know what to do with all that free time but my best friend suggested we meet every other Wednesdayeve and have supper together and just talk our fool heads off and that has been a blessing for me. Then with mylotting my days are full again and I am happy again.

i agree! No man is an island. We are design to mingle others so that we can feel the essence of life that is "Love". we must value once life and save every relationship we have. Therefore, relationship are the ultimate tie-breakers.

That is so very true. The nature of our relationship with others can make us very happy or very sad. Relationships do get us going or get us down. Look at a pregnant mother who starts to form a relationship with the baby even from in the womb. No man is an island, no man stands alone. Just goes to show how much we all need someone in our lives to show us love and affection.
