Nowadays, personal relationships are losing ground enormously. All RELATIONSHIPS...friendly,familial ... have diminished importance in the current societal scenario. Most relationships are centered around gaining personal motives. Even children choose to be extremely lovable and liking to squeeze out some kind of gain from parents and elders in the family. Friends for that matter pose to be of utmost sincerity in an effort win personal gains. Siblings follow a path of contrived coordination in winning self plans. All these and many more ....relationship of binding nature is a drop in ocean.

Some people choose to create a win/win in their relationships. I know that because I'm one of those people. We don't all have a desire to 'take' in our relationships. Some of us are willing to give and receive so we can experience a quality connection with each other.

Quite true my friend, relationships in fact are not taken accounted to in full strength and belief. Relationships...the quality of which has dropped to a lower extent unimaginable!

People have changed alot. People are selfish and self serving. They are out for themselves and don't care about anyone else. It is sad. Even in families this sems to be the way. A family should be where you feel safe and loved. Not so that much anymore. They are out for #1.

Yes indeed, relationships nowadays are measured on the basis of personal gains.People flock to those from whom they get something and if not then they desert them.Once upon a time family relationships were binding and members stuck to each other,depended on each other,lived together, helped each other in times of distress, supported each other and enjoyed together. Now all these ties have broken up.Children live seperate lives and sometimes send their parents to old age homes if they don`t want to support them.It is a sad commentary on modern age living and a sad state of affairs.

Sometimes it does seem that there is a trend that way, but not everyone is shallow. Here and there you still do find people with values.

Though I think that this is something that is true for some people, I really don't think that it is something that is true for most of the people that I know in my life. You see, I find that my friends are my friends because there is something about their personalities that connect me to them. Most of them don't even have anything that they would be able to offer to me, but I love them none the less.
