I am back again writing on one of my favourite topics which is relationships and maintaining them. It is often said Blood is thicker than Water which means one’s parents and siblings are assumed to bond well . But we see it is not always the case . Next come first cousins both from maternal and paternal side of the family. But what normally happens is they all don’t bond well with the same degree and the reasons could be many. Similar is the case with one’s aunts , again both from the maternal and paternal side of the family. Some end up becoming one’s’ favourite aunt ‘ for some reason or the other and enjoys the ‘position’ for ever.
Now coming to the core of maintaining any relationship after doing some analysis, I have come to the conclusion, that the oft repeated expression should be reversed : ‘ Water is thicker than blood’ and its flow is always downwards, (unless artificially pumped up) be it from the clouds or from Niagara!
Again, after some study on relationships I have concluded the weightage given to friends and maintaining friendships has become more important than maintaining relationship with blood relations.
