Love makes the world go around, relationships make love, and you and I can make the relationships we have count. All it needs is a bit of an effort, but you need to make a difference before it’s too late.
Good morning. This is Dimple Kapadia, and starting today, I begin a new journey with all of you; a journey to build a new bond and to talk about relationships — the ones we had, the ones we have and the one that could have been. I’m sure in the weeks to come, there will moments of happiness and most definitely moments of disagreement. But never apologise for showing your feelings. When you do so, you apologise for expressing the truth. People we love are special and we should never apologise for trying to reconnect with them.
Think of the people who are important to you — your partner, wife, husband, children, your brothers or sisters, parents, friends, classmates, co-workers, teachers. Are some of these relationships less important to you now, less important than you wish they were? If so, why?
As children, we related to other people in loving ways. We loved our parents without question. We could be affectionate, generous and loyal to others without any inhibition. As children, it seemed easy to love. Let’s uncomplicate our relationships and not take them for granted. Let’s give ourselves a chance again, a chance to reconnect with
people, a chance to forge relationships and make ourselves happy. These are people who matter; they are in our thoughts, in our souls, in our minds and in our hearts. We should not take them for granted, because if we lose them, it could be too late.
Let’s try and find a lost friend, a loved one or rebuild a broken relationship. There may be people who we fought with, but they still remain in our memories for many good reasons. There may be others who we never gave a chance to explain themselves, and we let the relationship slip; then, there are a few who we stopped meeting altogether for one reason or another. Take a minute and think, and you will see what I mean.
We, I am told, will meet next week again, and by then, I am sure you would have made up your mind to meet that special person again. If breaking the ice is going to be difficult, maybe I can try for you — a note in my next column or a special message to him or her, and you never know, it might just work. Actually, I’m sure it will because if you don’t try, how will you know? As I always believe,
