Distance makes the heart grow fonderWe as humans sometimes definitely need break from our hectic life schedule and slow down a bit. This allows us to rejuvenate ourselves and then again start fresh with new enthusiasm. But is this true about relations too? Do relations also need a break sometimes so that they become even stronger and sweeter?
It is said that distance makes the heart grow fonder. Similarly, for any important relationships of life like husband and wife, friends, son/daughter and father/mother sometimes a period of absence or distance from each other actually refreshes the relationship.
Just for example a husband and wife may be always with each other every day for years and years. This may sometimes lessen the sweetness in the relationship as more they stay with each other, more they talk and get close to each other, sometimes there will be misunderstandings and difference in opinions. The daily drag of a busy life can also have an impact on the relationship. They may start taking each other for granted. But it is seen that for some reason if they happen to separate from each other for some time due to the things like a husband going out of city or country for office work or wife going to her parent's place then things change. This is the time when they can no more be with each other and they start missing each other. They understand the importance and value of their relationship. Hence when they meet after the break the relations start with a fresh bonding.
So, do you feel sometimes relations get tarnished a bit by constantly being with each other or talking to each other and getting too close and used to each other? Do you feel distance or period of absence in any relations sometimes works as a catalyst to rejuvenate the relationship?
