You pass through life, touching others. Some just brush past you and others' leave behind parts of themselves that mold into you ... in the form of memories, habits or an epiphany. These are the people you love being with, consider Friends. They help you grow, they laugh with you, they make you feel good for being you, accepting you as you are, they are there to listen or just spend a few hours with and much much more.

On the other end of the spectrum, your life is sprinkled with people whom you just can't connect with. Those who you've never been able to deal, with like or understand. They are everything you hate. You wish you could just get away, but you are tied to them by acquaintance or relations, cursed to bear the brunt of their presence whenever they deem fit to be with you. You run at the first chance you get avoiding them at all costs, only doing your duties as formality requires.

In the middle somewhere are those few who you are tied to by the strings of heart or obligations. You wish they could understand you. You want them to know who you are but somehow you know they never will. It's a one way street, however you put it. You know it would be better if you could break off the ties but you never leave, and you keep coming back, coz you care or you owe them or if nothing else, you appreciate all that they've done for you once upon a time. They may or may not make you feel the worst but in may ways you are who you are becoz of them. Other times you are juts programmed to care, even though you hate yourself.

In the end I guess every relation is a chemical equation. Some just work, other's need a catalyst, some give an extra by product as a plus and others just Don't work. And we just have to live with it all !!!

**On the other end of the spectrum, your life is sprinkled with people whom you just can't connect with

this kind, I find in the blog world too...but I guess we all cant get along with everyone else. I hv learnt to let go of the pain that comes from such ppl.

**Some just work, other's need a catalyst, some give an extra by product as a plus and others just Don't work.

"In the end I guess every relation is a chemical equation."

Spot on. I loved reading this post. :) What makes life feel alive is all the people that come in and out of it. Some that we love, others that we prefer to keep a distance from, etc etc. You summed it all up very, very well.

As always Adisha, excellent. :)

Well...There are all kind of people in this world which seem like a crowd sometimes. Its just to strike a balance. The people, we hate, are indirectly the motivators for our appreciation for good people in our life. So it has significance.

PS: Adisha..m quite sure nw u hv a great deal of sense for relations....:)

Oh-MY-GOD. You are brilliant! Now this makes me want to shut down my blog because if I've had the same thoughts, and if I were to write, it would be the same thing. Only your version would be better! :D SO SO agree with you :) I've nothing else to add but say this was brilliant :)

Every relation is a chemical equation...brilliant. Adisha, little by little I will get through each one of your posts because I believe all will be filled with your pearls of wisdom.
