Since childhood we were told that if you waste time, time will destroy you. It was understood then and we started doing stuff with giving respect to time. However today I am drawing another aspect of time. It is true, time heals every wound, it was always said that everything happens on a predetermined time or on the suitable time, but did we ever wonder that devoting our time to a loved one can heal them comparatively faster.
Let me make it clear. It happens to most of us, rather all of us, we are so much busy in our daily routines we never bother about the people we are surrounded with; we never realize that they deserve our time. When you give your time to someone you give the most precious thing because time never comes back, and it works as fuel in a relationship. Nowadays money has become everything as we can't survive without it, but what about our relations, we start taking them for granted, this may cause many mental health issues. Humans are puppets with breath and life and emotions. Emotions need to be cherished & live, but in the blind race for money and career establishment we somehow ignore this. Like an abandoned plant, which dries up of ignorance, relations also start dying.
Here I am not talking about ignorance; there is a slight difference in ignoring someone and not giving proper time. Work pressure of an unspoken competition with colleagues or a self competition diverts a person towards self concentration for achievements. In this practice sometimes one forgets about their most precious aspect, i.e. relations. It is very difficult to recognize when we started taking our loved ones for granted.
It is not necessary to sit 24hrs a day with a person to talk or make them realize your existence and their importance; only a few minutes can do the miracle. In fact sometimes a tight and affectionate hug does a better job. The all a person need is a little attention to refuel his or her life battery. Doesn't matter in which relationship you are, your every relationship needs you equally. It may be your family or your colleagues, family gives you the motivation and the co-workers provide you the healthy competitive environment. A good relationship with colleagues prevent you from work pressure which is more precisely said 'job pressure'. A team of good teammates create healthy competition; undoubtedly it increases productivity as well as sound mental and physical health. So does a family. Family is the biggest support system in a person's life; we get positive energy and enthusiasm to achieve our desired goal. A sound environment has the power to save from mental fatigue.
I suggest one should grab sometime from their busy schedule to nourish their tree of relations. It is the best remedy to cope with your whole day long struggle to prove yourself the best. It may charge both: the relationship and the desire to achieve career goal. It is said and well understood that family is the most important part of life, it is the support system to rise and achieve all we want.
At the end of the day all a person needs is mental peace and rest for the body, spending time with your loved ones makes this practice so easy and reliving. In today's era our body has become a machine, and machines do need to be cared properly, as we charge our electrical batteries our body also requires charging - both mental and physical; and our loved ones do remarkable job.
