Why Relationships Are Vital To Living Happy And Successful Lives

Today I want to talk about the relationships that I have, that I’ve established, and that I’m growing as well.

It’s most of these relationships that are in my life that have helped me into being committed more to my writing and well being.

And even though these connections thus far haven’t gotten me to my definition of a “successful life”, I believe that they are guiding me. And they are most certainly giving me a happier life than I could imagine.

And if you know me in the slightest, you know that I’m a optimistic and overly-positive individual.

It Goes To Show That…

Who you associate with is vital to your own mindset and general mood as well. Even if that person is someone you don’t talk to. Reading their Facebook posts can affect you.

Me especially, which is why I hardly check it unless Facebook has filtered it to be helpful content.

But anyway let’s get back to relationships.

Relationships Can Prompt The Birth Of New Habits Or Refining Them

I’m finding this happening a lot with my accountability partner. Just this week in our weekly meeting I’ve said I wanted to be listening to videos while doing other things. For example listening to videos while going for my walk.

It’s something that I don’t normally do as I prefer talking to myself over investing in myself. But I’m making that change to some times do that.

Even though that is a great habit for me, I know for a lot of people who you associate with can prompt bad habits. Even worse they can reinforce bad habits, much like people can reinforce good habits.

Furthermore Relationships Can Be Formed Anywhere and Their Easier

One of the greatest things of the internet is that we can connect with people easier. Though this can be a blessing and a curse, it’s often a blessing when you are being selective.

When you devote time to building relationships online, it’s not as time consuming compared to forming one in real life.

I remember growing up I made friends around in school by hanging around them and by talking. That’s quite a bit of work and time especially comparing to my relationship with my accountability partner Nikhil.

As a recap we became friends over the fact I sent him a message and I helped him out with his writing. All of this done at the comfort of my own chair.

It puts things into perspective that relationships can be formed anywhere and they are just as genuine as the connections you make out in the real world.

So Continue To Refine And Enrich Your Relationships

When forming genuine relationships that can help you grow, it’s important you put in effort to enrich them. Send an email or a message to them once in a while and see how they’re doing. Continue to be present, it does make a difference in their lives.

To your growth!
