So many stories we hear, so many people we see, the things they do , the things they say; give out what they are in their personal life, they give out experiences and real feelings in ways of jokes and examples and other such behavior. Many of those tiny little hints inspired us to think of the relationships they are in. Revive your Relations brings to you write-ups based on the real stories of people we hear. These are not of the internet, not from psychology books, they are from the people who speak to us while we ask them about some other topic as research and actually get hints on their personal love story.
How many of us gave up on love, just cause we knew that it just wouldn’t have a future? How many of us gave up on our perfect match just because ‘it wasn’t going anywhere’? in these days of talking to numerous people about relationships we met so many who stayed back for the one they love with or without the certainty of a real future together. Love that did not need a next level, it did not need commitment on paper, it did not need a proposal, and engagement, a marriage certificate or anything else. Yes, we came across relationships that defied logic and practicality and decided to stay together till the very last moment they can. She said ” I will not get married, he will not either and we will be together till the day either one of us are forced to marry somebody else. And even if that ever happens neither one of us will last in our separate marriages”. We dint react when we heard that quote, just wrote it down, going back it made us think of all those who continue to be in love with people they might never end up with.
Relationships exist without needing a real time-line or set goals, they exist on pure faith. Faith that no matter what the world has in store we will be by each others’ side. The reasons were varied, some said they were from separate religions, some said their parents dint approve, some said the age gap was huge, some said their kids/family/friends/society will not let it happen. The reasons were varied the commitment was the same. Long distance relationships last on the faith that their love is too strong for either one to go and cheat! New relationships might not have this kind of commitment, we also noticed, that most of these couples were with each other through thick and thin for years, each day making their love for each other stronger than yesterday.
Here is what we learnt from all of them, in an age where we need goals and aims to lose weight, to succeed in our career to even love our parents they stuck by without any destination. Merely enjoying the journey of life, and taking one step at a time hoping that they can just get the chance to grow old together. What we learnt from these people also was that maybe this lost about future phase is about to end on the next turn of your journey and that maybe your time will arrive sooner than you think.
Hang in there, Keep that faith. You’re creating a story your grand children would love to hear.
