So, It is good to have touch with handful of (few) relatives and friends and colleagues who are true to us with love. Jus have” hai, how are you, bye “ relationship with everyone else. We will have to get lots of bad experiences if we go close with many people. In any new relationship, everything will be beautiful in the beginning. When the time goes by, things deteriorate and in most cases, hate will only be the result. Its because, we know nothing about the person in the beginning and we imagine a greenish picture about them. When the time goes by we get to know more details about the person which make us hate them if the details are not matching with our expectations. This is the reason why the priority matched relationships are rare and if we have such relationships we have to protect and nurture it for long term. Also there should be some mutual benefit and time availability for interaction for a relationship to sustain. It is also possible to have friendship with people whose priorities are not matched accepting the differences of each other. We have to be very choosy and careful in moving with people. Its good to maintain proper distance with people.
It is very rare to get new friends who may become close friends after college days. But I always keep my options open to meet new people and make friends and I get along well with all with proper distance.
